Leonard Goldberg, bestselling master of medical suspense, plunges into the nightmare scenario of terrorism in the ER

After poisoning a state dinner in Los Angeles, Chechen terrorists have infiltrated a prestigious medical center and taken several world dignitaries hostage, including the President of the United States. Undetected by the terrorists, David Ballineau—emergency room doctor and former Special Forces operative—keeps the patients alive with help from dauntless nurse Carolyn Ross. As the Vice President and top security officials plan a response in the Situation Room, the terrorists threaten to methodically kill the hostages until their demands are met. When hidden allegiances and political maneuvering undermine the rescue operation, it’s up to Ballineau and Ross to stop the terrorists before their violent actions create worldwide chaos.
