For a life worth living, she'll have to fight to the death.

After a string of personal tragedies, a young woman is kidnapped from her hospital bed and finds herself at the center of a huge medical conspiracy—one that if left unsolved will result in countless children's deaths ... and possibly her own.


“I did it. It looked like an accident, just as we discussed. It was perfect.”

When Darla Kelly wakes up in a hospital—confused, disoriented, and alone—she can’t help but add it to the list of personal tragedies that have left her reeling. She had been on track: she found a job, a great apartment, a boyfriend, and she got to see her dad every week. But somewhere along the line, things started going wrong. First, her beloved father, a well-respected cardiac surgeon, drowns in his pool, leaving her without any family, then she’s sideswiped by a car and almost dies herself. Having always put her father’s life before her own, she has nothing left to live for.

That is, until she’s kidnapped from her hospital bed and learns that she’s at the center of a major medical conspiracy—one that if left unsolved will result in countless children’s deaths . . . and possibly her own.
