When Martin Bower, CEO of financially troubled Coastal Regional Hospital, is fired and charged with embezzling millions of dollars, he turns to his old friend, criminal defense attorney Lucius White. Opposing White is the ambitious, win-at-any-cost federal prosecutor who will do whatever it takes to convict Bower, and the hospital’s attorneys are only too happy to give her all the help she needs. As Lucius White investigates the charges against Bower, he uncovers an elaborate maze of money transfers designed to hide the theft of drugs from the hospital and coded messages that hide a scheme to take over the hospital. But who is behind the thefts? Who wants control of the hospital and why do they want it? And why have those who can answer the questions been murdered? White’s peril-riddled investigation is merely preluded to the dramatic trial during which the last clue linking all the crimes fall into place.
