Publisher's Summary

Dr. Duncan Lathram is a brilliant plastic surgeon who recently invented a dissolving implant that allows incisions to heal without scarring. His unparalleled artistry in the operating room is the salvation of all the biggest power players in Washington, DC, whenever they need to be TV ready. Lathram appears to have it all, but something isn’t right....

When young Gina Panzella isn’t hustling as a house doctor at a local community hospital, she assists Dr. Lathram with surgery. She’s known him almost her entire life and respects him deeply, yet there are a few things about him she can’t quite figure out - like why so many of his patients are mysteriously dying. 

Overcome with suspicion and fear, Panzella enlists the help of Gerry Canney, a high school classmate now working with the FBI, to dig deep into the doctor’s past. Soon they will discover what Lathram is truly capable of....

Hang in there

The 1st half of this book is a cliché, from arrogant doctors with God complexes that need to use $20 words to show how “smart” they are, to the “beautiful” heroine and her rugged, handsome new FBI flame. If you force yourself to get past the 1st half of the book, you will be surprised.

Could not finish this

The reader has a very annoying, old-fashioned voice, making the dialogue sound almost cartoonish. The writing is worse. Had to go check when the book was actually written. Audible says 2018, but it feels more like 1956. I think at one point the author said one of the characters 'guffawed.' When he described the main character as having a "perfect bust" I finally could not make myself go any further.
