The well-dressed gentleman dumped from a limousine into the parking lot of San Francisco's Mercy Hospital was not your typical junkie hovering near death from a heroin overdose. Attending physician Dr. Carroll Monks knows something's very strange -- and very wrong -- even before a phalanx of lawyers and doctors appears out of nowhere to whisk his recovering patient away . . . and a suspicious fire destroys all evidence that the man was ever there.
But the sinister conspiracy surrounding the disappearance of a billionaire computer wunderkind is deeper and murkier than Monks could have possibly guessed. Suddenly his ethics and his curiosity are dragging Carroll Monks into a nightmare of outlaw technology, corporate greed, and inhuman experimentation -- and placing him in the deadly path of powerful forces who will stop at nothing to speed the coming of a dark and terrible future.
