Biotechnology tycoon Morgan Finney is highly intelligent but shy and emotionally fragile. When his beloved wife Jenny dies of complications during a surgery led by Dr. Rita Wu, Finney’s grief turns to rage. He vows to kill Rita just as he believes she killed his wife.

But first he will systematically destroy her life. He will take what is precious to her just as she did to him. Aided by a mysterious man, Finney uses advanced medical technology to ruin Rita’s reputation and bring her to the brink of madness. Alone, fighting for her sanity and life, Rita reaches out to her to former lover, Dr. Spencer Cameron, for help.

From Publishers Weekly

Dec 19, 2016 – Near the start of this suspenseful if uneven thriller from Parsons (Doing Harm), Dr. Rita Wu, an assistant professor of surgery at the University of California (San Diego), wakes up one morning, naked, strapped to an operating table, with no idea how she got there. Soon she hears a voice in her head, a voice that apparently no one else can hear and that controls her mind. The voice belongs to tycoon Morgan Finney, a powerful inventor. As Rita lies helpless on the table, a man who claims to be Morgan Finney tries to assure her that the voice she hears is real and they need to talk about his wife, Jenny. After this harrowing opening setup, the pace slackens, slowed by too many points of view, including that of Rita's spurned lover, Dr. Spencer Cameron, until the tight ending. The supporting characters may be flat, but Rita makes a great doctor-in distress, and Parsons does a good job dramatizing how patients often become commercial cogs in medical institutions.
