Description

It has been twenty years since Nat Hennessy watched a street thug beat his father to death. When a routine homicide investigation unexpectedly leads to an opportunity to avenge the murder, the NYPD detective does not hesitate to act - but only at enormous risk to himself and the woman he loves.Dr. Cush Walker lives with the childhood memory of watching the Ku Klux Klan lynch his father. A pioneering brain surgeon, Walker has dedicated his life to perfecting a breakthrough medical procedure designed to eradicate the kind of hatred that caused his father's death - but with dangerous consequences to his patients and himself.Camilla Bisonette is brought to the doctor's clinic barely clinging to life. Now Nat Hennessy's fiancee - but once romantically linked to Cush Walker - she might be saved, but only if Walker stretches his ethics and medical expertise to the breaking point - and only if he joins forces with his bitter rival, Nat Hennessy.From an explosive secret that stretches back more than half a century to the mysteries of memory locked away in the human brain ... from the impulses and passions that drive us to acts of rage to the shattered lives we leave behind.show more
