Is a malignant genius tinkering with women’s bodies…? Obstetrical intern Jill Raney determines to investigate tragedies at a famous fertility hospital. When two pregnant women die and a fetus is born with severe abnormalities, Jill’s superiors – including handsome, smitten-with-her resident David Levine – insist there’s no common link.
But her suspicions deepen with the murder of a third pregnant woman. And when a fourth woman miscarries and then disappears, Jill frantically searches for her – following a terrifying path that seems to link all the victims: Is someone playing with life…and the structures of human life itself?
