It's 5:38 on a March morning when Alex's phone jars her awake. Homicide detective Mike Chapman is at the scene of a sexual assault and murder. It's a perfect case for Alex and her special skills.

And it's certain to be a high-profile case because the victim was a neurosurgeon at Mid-Manhattan Medical Center, the oldest and largest hospital in New York City.

display_description In New York, a woman brain surgeon is sexually assaulted and stabbed. Murder by a demented patient or a more sinister killer? Policewoman Alexandra Cooper investigates. "New York City's oldest and largest medical center is the scene of a ghastly attack: top neurosurgeon Gemma Dogen is found in her blood-soaked office, where she has been sexually assaulted, stabbed, and designated by the cops as a "likely to die." By the time Alex has plunged into the case, it's a high-profile, media-infested murder investigation with a growing list of suspects. As Alex's passion to find the killer intensifies, she discovers this hospital's labyrinthine halls are not a place of healing but of deadly peril -- and that she is the next target."--Page 4 of cover.
