Description
A stunning blockbuster of a novel that combines the terror of modern medicine run amok - in the manner of Robin Cook - with the gripping suspense of John Grisham's The Firm.Quinn Cleary has always wanted to be a doctor. Yet the only way she can afford it is to win acceptance to The Ingraham, an exclusive, privately funded medical school and research center reputed to be the nation's finest. The few select students chosen by The Ingraham receive a completely free medical education: tuition, room, board, and lab fees all paid by the school.Once accepted to the school of her dreams, Quinn dives into her studies and into a steady relationship with a classmate. At last, her life seems perfect.Or is it? Quinn begins to notice subtle changes in her classmates: the way they act, the way they think - all seem to be falling eerily into line with the messianic vision of the school's director. She confides her concerns to her boyfriend, who laughs them off - until he finds a suspicious electronic monitoring device in his room.Then he disappears....Alone on the deserted campus during midyear break, Quinn Finally encounters the dark truth about The Ingraham - the true purpose of the institute's seemingly humane medical research, the motives that have determined the school's policy, and the secret mission of the hospital's intimidating security force, a small private army that is drawing an ever tighter net around her with each passing minute.What she discovers is immense and terrifying - a conspiracy that exposes her to a danger more frightening than death - a cynical plot that undermines everything she has ever believed about the healing arts.This is suspense fiction at its grandest: instantly and relentlessly compelling, and touching directly on an issue that heads the list of our national and personal priorities.
