A cosmetic surgery patient complains of an inexplicable rash. A patient's pacemaker causes havoc with electrical equipment. A man is fished out of San Francisco Bay, his body disfigured by sharks—or by a human with a scalpel.

What she doesn't know is that she has already been added to that list of potential victims. For in an age in which cosmetic surgery can produce miraculous beauty, someone has discovered the ultimate transformation: using the human body as the perfect disguise for terror.
