What if your HMO came up with the perfect way to make money? What if it killed you?
Tom Kanon is an international expert in nanotechnology who uses microbots to deliver healthcare directly to the organs and cells of the human body. He envisions a world where disease has been vanquished and designer robots police the human body. Microbots with specialized tools will remove cardiac plaque, carry hormones and enzymes where they are needed, and act as portable insulin pumps, miniature defibrillators, and pacemakers.
Kanon's nanobot research soon attracts the attention of Jack Taylor, the CEO of Omni Health HMO. Taylor shrewdly woos Kanon into accepting a position as the head of the emergency room at Omni to tighten the company's stranglehold on the market. Kanon thought he knew everything about his field-until people start dying at his hospital and none of the other staff members care.
As Tom struggles to find out why, he races against time to ensure the safety of his patients and loved ones against those who want them dead. But wanting to trust someone and knowing whom to trust are two very different things in the world of global corporate domination fueled by the bottom line.
