An agonizing sports injury did more than end Brian Holbrook's professional football dreams. It left the skilled cardiologist with an addiction to prescription painkillers that eventually cost him his marriage and his license to practice medicine. But now, at thirty-eight, Brian's cleaned up his act, swallowed his pride, and is ready to start over. The prestigious Boston Heart Institute has offered Brian an opportunity to participate in trials of a new drug that could revolutionize medicine. Vasclear may have the power to reverse arteriosclerosis, the number one killer in the civilized world. The initial results are so dazzling Brian pushes to get his own father, who has a dangerous heart condition, into the scheme. But soon Brian is uneasy. Under close scrutiny because of his past, Brian cannot afford to make waves, but the mysterious disappearance of a colleague and deaths of patients on the scheme compels him to ask questions. However, with billions of dollars at stake, questions could cost him his career - and his father's life. For as Brian is beginning to suspect, knowing too much at the Boston Heart Institute is the quickest way to the morgue.
