When a homeless man, wearing a mysterious hospital wristband, dies from bizarre symptoms in one of New York City's busiest trauma rooms no one takes much notice except Dr. Guy Luthan, the attending physician that night. Professional concern soon deepens into disbelief as Luthan's investigation unearths the shocking details of a private medical research program that centers around one of the country's most revered medical figures--Dr. Lawrence Myrick.
