All the overdose cases are people who are financially well-off. Her intution tells her these are not drug overdoses but they are actually murders. She later finds out she was correct, but she never expected this would put her own life at risk and one of the most wanted person in the list of US mafia.
A beautifully written story by Robin Cook, which forces us to think how the medical world is being manipulated by criminals to make money.
