An agonizing sports injury did more than end Brian Holbrook’s professional football dreams. It left the skilled cardiologist with an addiction to prescription painkillers that eventually cost him his marriage and his license to practice medicine. But now, at thirty-eight, Brian’s cleaned up his act, swallowed his pride, and is ready to start over. Yet how far is he willing to go to be a doctor again?

The prestigious Boston Heart Institute, home of some of the world’s top surgeons and cardiologists, has offered Brian an opportunity to get back into scrubs and participate in trials of an extraordinary new drug that could revolutionize medicine. Vasclear may have the power to reverse arteriosclerosis, the number one killer in the civilized world. In short, it offers the promise of a pharmaceutical fountain of youth.

The initial results are so dazzling, Brian pushes to get his own father, who has a dangerous heart condition, accepted into the Vasclear study. But soon Brian is uneasy. Under close scrutiny because of his past, he knows that the last thing he can afford to do is make waves and yet he finds himself compelled to ask questions that his superiors can’t, or won’t, answer: Why crucial records have disappeared. Why a patient who’d made startling progress has suddenly died. With billions of dollars at stake in the race to get FDA approval for the drug, Brian’s meddling could destroy his career or worse. For as Dr. Brian Holbrook is beginning to suspect, at Boston Heart Institute, knowing too much is the quickest way to the morgue.

    " This was a great read about a young Doctor, Brian who is trying desperately to get his life back in order after becoming addicted to pain killers and losing his medical license. When Brian's father is admitted into Boston Heart Institute for chest pains, Brian is unexpectedly called in to another patients room to help a fellow doctor diagnose a dying patient. With a correct diagnoses in place, the chief of medicine is impressed and offers Brian a job at the hospital. Filled with excitement Brian accepts; what he doesn't know is that he has just stepped into a very dangerous hospital conducting drug trials and doing whatever it takes to get their miracle drug approved by the FDA. A great medical thriller with twist and turns all along the way! "
