Publisher's Summary

Dr. Toby Harper works the night shift in an emergency room. She spends her daytime hours alone with her mother, who suffers from Alzheimer's disease. When elderly Alzheimer's patients from the same retirement home start dying mysteriously, Toby is the only one suspicious enough to investigate. As a result, she finds herself, her mother, and her own sanity at risk.


What the Critics Say

"Richly drawn hospital scenes....Chilling science...and breathless ER-style pacing....A quick, delightfully scary listen." ( People)
"[A] spine-tingling medical chiller....The pieces in this adeptly crafted Rubik's cube don't click into place until the final [moment]." ( Publishers Weekly )

Excellently abridged and read well

This recording is a bargain for 3 hours' listening to a fast-paced and ingenious thriller. Although going beyond what is currently biologically feasible in cell biology it is sufficiently plausible to be believable and the author obviously knows a lot about bio-medical matters. The abridging has been expertly done as the story is coherent and easy to follow. The reader is good.
