RN-turned novelist Bill Clem gives readers a chilling look at the science behind cryogenics in his sixth medical thriller. Dr. Josh Logan believes he is making the right decision when he opts to leave the university medical center for The Ford Institute, a modern, state-of-the-art medical facility in Phoenix, Arizona. Josh is eager to work alongside Lawrence Bowman, a renowned physician known for his remarkable results in neurosurgery. But his decision is due also, in no small part, to the recent loss of his wife and their unborn child to a devastating disease. But his plans at Ford go awry from day one. First he finds out some unsettling news about Ford from investigative reporter Marty Branigan. Then, to his surprise, a week into his new position, he is accused of administering the wrong medication during surgery, resulting in the patient's death. As things unravel for Josh, he begins to suspect something else behind all his bad luck, and with the help of Marty he delves deeper into the history of Ford. Soon, they discover that Ford is affiliated with Aurora Life Extension, a controversial organization that promises immortality through cryonic suspension. But by the time they learn the truth about Ford, and its seemingly groundbreaking cures, the pair run afoul of an even more sinister group, a secret cabal calling itself the GPO, and-worst of all-their powerful, enigmatic director who will stop at nothing to succeed . . . including murder.
