Memorial Medical Center in Greater Los Angeles is the
base of operations for world-renowned forensic pathologist
Joanna Blalock. Together with her significant other,
police officer Jake Sinclair, she logs in more work hours
in a week than most people put in a month. Right now both
are working on cases that overlap which means they are
spending even more time together.
The duo concludes that a female assassin has killed at
least three people in the area. One of the victims was a
Russian immigrant who had buried ten perfectly preserved
fetuses without organs in a vacant lot. The second
deceased was a venture capitalist funding a bioengineering
complex. The third dead person is a geneticist who worked
at the bioengineering company funded by the second victim.
If the intrepid pair can find the link tying the trio
together they might track down the lethal hellion and her
patrons ordering the hits.
Leonard Goldberg provides readers with a full look into
the good, the bad, and the ugly world of genetics with his
top rate medical thriller FATAL CARE. The story line is on
a par with the best of Cornwell and Palmer. The dynamic
investigators make quite a team and the killer is a driven
professional. All this leads to a fast clip at the start
and continues at a record that fast pace that never slows
down until the end.
