After the shocking discovery of his friend Andy's cadaver, renowned neurosurgeon Dr. Lucas McRae, with a helping hand from the self-assured, no-nonsense detective Wendy Elliott, seek to expose a sinister syndicate of body snatchers in Allen Wyler's pulse-pounding thriller, Dead Ringer.
Wyler, a distinguished neurosurgeon himself, showcases a keen eye for detail as well as the ability to craft nuanced characters, and Ray Chase displays a surgeon's precision with his expertly calculated, pitch-perfect performance that heightens the nail-biting tension of this exhilarating medical thriller.
While speaking at a Hong Kong medical conference, neurosurgeon Dr. Lucas McCrae slips the cloth off a cadaver's head during a routine medical demonstration, and is overwhelmed with the shock by what's staring back at him: His best friend, Andy Baer.
Stunned, McCrae races back to Seattle to discover that Andy is in fact missing and may have been murdered by a gang of body snatchers who operate a legit funeral business and make a fortune by selling recovered body parts to medical researchers.
McCrae teams up with an unlikely pair - a beautiful but hard nosed female cop and a gang member whose family was victimized by the body parts ring - to try and expose a macabre web of corruption that involves law enforcement, politicians, funeral home curators and murdered prostitutes.
Internationally renowned neurosurgeon Allen Wyler takes us deep into a nightmarish scenario, shockingly ripped from recent headlines, and delivers a horrifically plausible, pause resisting thriller.
