Morgan Finney, a biotechnology tycoon, is a shy, highly intelligent but socially awkward and emotionally fragile man. When Jenny dies of complications during a surgery led by Dr. Rita Wu, he vows to kill Rita just as he believes she killed his wife. Alone, fighting for her sanity and life, Rita reaches out to ex-lover Dr. Spencer Cameron and, together, they uncover Finney’s horrific intentions and race to stop him.

His over-reaching ambition causes him to botch a major surgery, and another of his patients mysteriously dies. Steve’s nightmare goes from bad to worse when he learns that the mysterious death was no accident but the act of a sociopath. A sociopath he knows and who has information that could destroy Steve’s career and marriage. A sociopath for whom killing is more than a means to an end: it’s a game. Learn more…
