When President Thomas Lloyd arrives in Zurich, Switzerland, for a Russian oil summit, he suffers a massive heart attack. Despite the best medical care available, his only chance for survival is an immediate heart transplant. Five miles away, political journalist Jack McDermott has awoken from a near-death coma, and his name mistakenly turns up as a donor match for Lloyd. The hospital, quickly realizing their error, informs the President’s cabinet. However, with the Russian economy on the verge of collapse and Lloyd’s life in the balance, they decide to do the unthinkable. But as the accelerating tempest of secrecy and lies unfolds, Dr. Jonah Bailey uncovers an even more sinister plot that goes all the way to the Vice President. Aided by Dr. Eva Smorzak, Jonah must avoid a team of deadly assassins in order to save not only Jack, but himself, Eva, and ultimately the President.
