When a top surgeon begins to crack under stress in his personal life, and patients start to die, suspicions surface at a San Francisco hospital. A sudden spike in patient deaths drives an impassioned ICU nurse to launch a clandestine investigation, targeting a powerful cardiac surgeon whose corrupt connections could destroy her career.
Although this is a work of fiction, the medical scenes are accurate portrayals of real-life critical care situations. As a critical care nurse for my entire nursing career, I’ve worked with some of the best healthcare professionals, and have seen plenty.
