Operating on American soil but controlled from Moscow, the Russian mob has assembled a criminal network of shady doctors and corrupt U.S. officials in a massive conspiracy. The Russians plant secret agents in the government, deploy vicious assassins, partner with corrupt US officials, and bankroll greedy leaders of American corporations to steal billions of dollars with deadly medical care scams. They inflict dreadful consequences on trusting patients with phony diagnoses, worthless treatments, and unnecessary drugs. When the insidious scheme ravages his own family, young cyber sleuth Will Manningham and his wife Sally take on the mob in a deadly struggle that pits his brain and supercomputer and her shrewdness and courage against the international crime ring.
Eleanore Hinkel thinks she has a simple tummy ache but it’s appendicitis and she needs surgery. She’s rushed to Northeast Suburban Hospital where highly-regarded surgeon Dr. Matthew McDonald performs the operation. But something goes terribly wrong and her family can only watch helplessly as she slowly withers away and dies. Other patients in the same hospital are needlessly going from the operating table to the autopsy table but the secrets behind their deaths are buried with them. Cybersleuth Will Manningham uncovers the trail of mysterious deaths and joins with the FBI to reveal the Deadly Bargain the hospital has made with Alexandra Parushnikova and her Russian masters.
Dr. Sarah Belden, a pediatrician in training, and a loving young couple, Martina and Derek Johnson, confront the agonizing challenges and potential disasters that plague the Johnson babies. Sarah Belden knows Martina Johnson all too well from three previous tragic pregnancies, and now she is called to the delivery room for an emergency: the fourth Johnson baby is extremely tiny and has no signs of life whatsoever. Apgar score zero: no pulse, not breathing, quickly turning blue-black from lack of oxygen, completely limp, not responding to stimulation. Sarah Belden has but one chance to make a life-or-death decision: declare a stillbirth and leave things alone? Or try to resuscitate? She will learn that no good deed goes unpunished. Her choice will haunt her and the Johnsons for the rest of their lives.
