Neurosurgeon Jessie Copeland works at the very frontier of neurosurgery, developing technology that could revolutionize the treatment of brain tumors. But her work brings her to the attention of an infinitely dangerous man.

Claude Malloche is brilliant, remorseless—a terrorist without regard for human life. He is also ill with a brain tumor considered to be inoperable. Nothing can stop Malloche from getting to the woman he believes can cure him. For those caught in his path, the nightmare has just begun … and no one is more aware of the stakes than Jessie Copeland.

In brain surgery there are no guarantees—but that’s exactly what Malloche demands. With disaster just one cut away, Jessie faces the most harrowing case of her life—and the price of failure may be thousands of lives.

    " Read as part of a Book Club. "

    " Palmer is a good author, but use of so many medical terms so frequently in the book make it a little hard to keep your attention at times. I found myself wandering off when he hits you with a full paragraph or two of nothing but medical terms. Otherwise, not bad. "

    " Medical thriller that kept my attention and was a quick, simple read. Main themes include robot driven neurosurgery and top tier physicians hi-jacked by a high profile criminal with an "inoperable" frontal meningioma. Dr. Palmer is my second favorite "MD" author (in the fictional realm) next to, of course, the late Dr. Crichton. "

    " This was a free ebook from the library, and a popular author so I wanted to give it a try. A quick read, but often predictable. The main characters, who are selflessly heroic and brilliant against master minded assassins, got to be tedious, and I found myself just wishing for the end of the story. I enjoy the medical aspect Palmer's writing. This story is written around the setting of cutting age technology, rather than making the technology a pivotal part of the thriller. I like Palmer's writing style, and will read more of him. Hopefully his use of medicine within the story will continue to develop. "
