Dr. Nick Garrity, a vet suffering from PTSD, post traumatic stress disorder, spends his days and nights dispensing medical treatment from a mobile clinic to the homeless and disenfranchised in D.C. and Baltimore. Psych nurse Gillian Coates wants to find her sister's killer. She does not believe that Belle Coates, an ICU nurse, took her own life, even though every bit of evidence indicates that she did, every bit save one. Together, Nick and Gillian determine that one-by-one, each of those in the operating room for a fatally botched case is dying. Their discoveries pit them against genius Franz Koller, the highly-paid master of the "non-kill", the art of murder that does not look like murder. As Doctor and nurse move closer to finding the terrifying secret behind these killings, Koller has been given a new directive: his mission will not be complete until Gillian Coates and Garrity, the last surgeon, are dead.

A patron review from the Adult Summer Game: "This is a fast-paced novel following an army doctor with P.T.S.D. as he tries to find the man who saved his life in a suicide bombing in Afghanistan. Along the way he teams up with a nurse who has died suspiciously and is linked to his search. As they delve deeper they become the targets of a professional hit-man."

This book started a little slow and confusing, but then it took off and finished well. 7 of 10 for me.

Not one of Michael Palmers best. The story starts out very interesting but seems to drag out to long. The final chapter seems endless and is not believable.
