Dr. Erin Tyler returns to Michigan from California for the wedding of her sister, Lisa, to a guitarist in an English rock band. She has also come back to work with her father, Dr. Rich Tyler, at a managed care organization called Triangle Health Care. Erin finds herself in a conspiracy involving a group of disgruntled physicians that range from the chief medical officer of Triangle Health Care to a cardiovascular surgeon and cardiologist at a superior performance hospital known for its health care quality. The physicians have found a major flaw within the hospital's health care delivery system and are exploiting it. As the physicians become aware of Erin's scrutiny, they discuss ways to stop her behavior before they are caught.
As Erin begins a romantic relationship with the singer in the English rock band, Steve Robinson, they travel to London, England for business and pleasure. While in England, Erin finds out that her father has been placed in critical condition at a Michigan hospital. Believing his life to have been placed at risk because of her inquisitiveness, she arrives back home to search for needed evidence. With Steve at her side, they unravel the puzzle that puts both of their lives in jeopardy.
