In Malibu, California, as a storm rages neurosurgeon Dr. Michael Preston drives home with his brother Matt following the latter's engagement party. Michael decides to pull over until the current torrent eases up, but before he can find a safe spot, an SUV swerves all over the road before hitting Michael's vehicle. Michael saves Matt's life, but he is paralyzed. The DUI receives a fine and some community service and goes on driving. Michael feels responsible though he logically knows better.

Three years later, Stergis Braxton meets with Michael to bring him on the research team that is very close to finding a way to reverse spinal cord injuries. Obsessed with a cure, Michael agrees though he finds Stergis' paranoia strange. Michael cannot believe the medical community led by a powerful HMO and the American government would not want a successful cure, but then again the polio vaccine cost the industry billions. Soon Michael will learn the truth as the hired killers of the Consortium want him and Kayla Kilmer, daughter of the key researcher, dead at all costs.

Though the chase is fun to follow, that subplot takes away from an exhilarating shocking medical thriller that never lets up until the final hoped for dash for safety. Readers will find it difficult to accept the premise that a major breakthrough would be thwarted by the medical big business government consortium Rusty Reeves makes a compelling case that proves is the key to this strong exposť tale. Sub-genre fans and anyone interested in conspiracies that the public be damned will want to read this well written tale.
