Dr. Harry Corbett heads to the hospital to visit his wife, Evie, scheduled for surgery the next day, and finds, much to his shock, that Evie is dead. The police suspect homicide. Their only suspect is Harry. Harry is unprepared for the stunning revelations that follow: his bright, beautiful, highly ambitious wife was leading a double life. But what secret was explosive enough for her to die for?
When the killer strikes again, tauntingly murdering one of Harry's favorite patients, Harry is certain of one thing: the killer, moving undetected through a busy urban hospital, could only be another doctor. Desperately, Harry probes deeper, following the only clue Evie left, and finds a sinister pattern that threatens hospital patients throughout the city. Dr. Harry Corbett is engaged in a life-and-death battle of wits with a chillingly efficient monster. And until this monster is unmasked, no patient is safe from his lethal silent treatment.
