Dr. Sean Nolan has earned a reputation as a medical detective. When a young reporter discovers deaths related to a designer drug with connections to a major drug company, his investigation is suddenly blocked by federal authorities.
He turns to Dr. Nolan for help, but the federal involvement is a flashing red warning light. Intrigued by the story, Dr Nolan refuses to be drawn into the mystery. When the reporter vanishes days later without a trace, the guilt at not helping becomes an unbearable burden.
Now all Dr. Nolan needs to do is track down the reclusive billionaire owner of Geneteer Pharmaceuticals somewhere in Africa.
