So when two brothers in her care suddenly die from far advanced meningitis, she is devastated but understands as a doctor, she has to let it go.

As she begins to unwind a ruthless conspiracy, Morgan becomes convinced someone or some group is cutting a deadly path of vengeance through Dade Presbyterian—a path that may end with her facing her own demise at the hands of a merciless madman.
