Kelly Davis, mid-thirties, biotech executive recruiter with over ten years of experience in the glamorous, challenging and sometimes dangerous industry notices a tan pickup truck following her off the freeway. It pulls alongside, crashing into her hood sending her rental car somersaulting over the cliff and down a forty foot drop. Waking up from a coma in Santa Monica Hospital with multiple injuries she knows this isn't an accident. Competition in biotechnology to produce the next breakthrough Hormone Replacement Therapy product is volatile and fierce, not for the weak of heart. Her company, Lancing Biotech in Carson Bay, New Jersey has a multi-billion dollar winner, and lots of ambitious competitors. After three month's recuperation she has to jump back in the game to get their key positions finalized, but deadly incidents continue to mount up as the company comes closer to FDA approval. Lancing Biotech and her protective friends at the Lancing Estate are her family and Jack Sanderford, the handsome new VP, Marketing is designated her personal bodyguard. The FBI is called in by the local police following a suspicious death near her peaceful home in Oyster Cove on Long Island. While Kelly begins to lean more and more on Jack she can't foresee the horrific event that is to permanently change their lives and shake the amazing world of medical research. Although this story is based on a gruesome incident in the actual history of the bio-pharmaceutical industry most of the names of people, places, products and events have been changed.
