Deep in the research labs of University Hospital, a biochemical engineer has developed a new material that he designed to behave in a specific biological manner. The co-developer of this product is Dr. Jay Yamp, a renowned surgeon with an impeccable reputation, who is using it for the first time on his patients. A large pharmaceutical company engaged in opioid manufacturing and marketing, is attempting to promote the sale of its product to unscrupulous doctors––a whistle-blower in the drug industry unravels a pattern of illegal drug-promotion and becomes an innocent target. These seemingly separate events become linked through deception, manipulation, and intrigue within a hospital environment that makes us all unnerved. It is entertaining and frightening to read how vulnerable we can all be as patients. Murder, money, and greed slam together with a seemingly untraceable method of death in a brilliantly original Consequence of Murder.
