It has been twenty years since Nat Hennessy watched a street thug beat his father to death. All those years haven't dimmed Nat's memory or satisfied his hunger for justice. When a routine homicide investigation unexpectedly leads to an opportunity to avenge the murder, the NYPD detective does not hesitate to act -- but only at enormous risk to himself and the woman he loves.
Dr. Cush Walker lives with the childhood memory of watching the Ku Klux Klan lynch his father. A pioneering brain surgeon, Walker has dedicated his life to perfecting a breakthrough medical procedure designed to eradicate the kind of hatred that caused his father's death -- but with dangerous consequences to his patients and himself.
Camilla Bisonette is brought to the doctor's clinic barely clinging to life. Now Nat Hennessy's fiancée -- but once romantically linked to Cush Walker -- she might be saved, but only if Walker stretches his ethics and medical expertise to the breaking point -- and only if he joins forces with his bitter rival, Nat Hennessy.
