At the end of WW II revolutionary technology seized from Nazi slave-labor labs in central Europe was consigned to the Forbidden List to be kept secret forever.
When Deputy Assistant Undersecretary of Defense Daniel Rivers stumbled across it he plotted to make a fortune from its release. Rivers’ scheme was discovered and everyone relaxed when he was quietly silenced with a commitment to the Wheaton Fields Psychiatric Clinic as a paranoid schizophrenic. Relaxed that is until it was discovered that a copy of the data was missing.
Now, competing forces are plotting to be the first to possess the revolutionary discovery.
Caught in the middle of this free-for-all is Dr. Steven Westbrook, the new Medical Director at the Wheaton Fields Hospital. On only Westbrook’s second day on the job he’s confronted with Daniel Rivers’ murder soon followed by a puzzling series of events as the battle to find and exploit the missing technology becomes increasing more lethal and draws Westbrook ever deeper into its web.
