When Dr. Suzannah Lord encounters the dashing and charismatic artist Andrew Dugan at a gallery opening, he makes a heartrending plea for help, which forces Suzannah to confront a dark memory from her own past and a medical experiment gone terribly wrong. Once an aspiring young neurosurgeon ablaze with talent and ambition Suzannah was forced to sacrifice her dream and settle for general surgery after she rebuffed the advances of a brilliant and well-connected researcher, Dr. Roland Lancaster. Now Dr. Lancaster has made it big - achieving international recognition for developing a microchip that, when implanted in the brain, can restore sight in even those blind from birth. The FDA is just steps away from approving the technique when the desperate artist begs Suzannah for help. According to Dugan and other experimental patients, one of the agonizing side effects of the microchip is the ability to see into the future with terrifying results. Knowing her to be one of the few who worked on the microchip, Dugan asks Suzannah to operate on him and remove it - even if it means total loss of sight and the end of his career. Soon, however, Suzannah realizes with ominous certainty that she is being stalked by someone who does not want the operation to succeed. Only shrewdness and courage can protect her from a ruthless killer whose cruel design is opposite from everything Suzannah stands for. Steven Spruill has written a terrifying woman-in-jeopardy novel, set in the world of medical suspense.
