From the award-winning author of OVERDOSE and DYING TO REMEMBER
“This medical thriller is chock-full of fascinating ideas—memory erasure, memory transfer, the military applications of memory—that will hook readers almost immediately.”
"The book moves forward with impressive momentum . . . Like running up a spiral staircase--you might see where it's going, but the twists will leave you dizzy."
A teenage girl hobbles into the emergency room on the stump of an amputated leg, only to die in the arms of medical resident Jake Warner. She leaves behind a handgun, a strange diary, and many unanswered questions. Haunted by his inability to save the girl, Jake photocopies the diary before turning it over to the police.
Days later another patient in Jake’s care unexpectedly dies, and he discovers that he has somehow forgotten everything from the entire day when he was treating the young man. Seemingly by coincidence he also wins a free vacation in Europe. Although the trip comes with unusual restrictions, he accepts and brings the girl’s diary with him.
On the streets of Milan, Jake witnesses a mugging and helps the victim, a tourist named Tykeria. They fall in love, and together they try to figure out the connections among the deaths, the diary, and Jake’s forgotten day. But Jake’s problems, including his memory loss, keep getting worse. Somehow he must cross the void of lost memories to reveal the true cause of his patient’s deaths—and to save himself.

From the award-winning author of DYING TO REMEMBER and LETHAL CURE
Dr. Emily Morrison undertakes a controversial drug study over protests from fringe groups and even some colleagues. Soon she’s facing death threats and a letter bomb that maims her secretary. Then a young coed suddenly dies after taking the experimental medication. Emily figures out what killed the girl—not the study drug but DIFP, a toxic chemical from her lab. A diabetic, Emily discovers the same toxin in her insulin. But when the police find a bottle of DIFP in Emily’s office, she suddenly changes from victim to suspect.
Then a professional killer comes after her, and he eliminates anyone who gets in the way. Emily knows she must confront this stalker on her terms, but she’ll have to do it without help, using only the element of surprise. And that’s just her first step in uncovering the truth – she needs to find out who hired the killer before someone else tries to finish what he started.
"An intriguing thriller set against a backdrop of clinical drug tests and medical research." — Kirkus Reviews
