All he wants is to finish his residency and become a surgeon. But that dream might well be shattered when Surgical resident Matt Stone and two of his friends uncover the secret research of hospital chief surgeon Dr. Simons and a local abortionist. The two doctors are running experiments on aborted fetuses, "stealing" their hearts to give to infants with congenital heart problems.
The pro-choice candidate for governor, Layton Redman, knows nothing about the research, but he does know that scandal could destroy his campaign. So he arranges an abortion for the unwed staff volunteer who is pregnant with his child. When the woman is involved in a car accident, Matt saves the baby's life. But when Simons discovers that the child is Redman's--one they had planned to use in their research--he seeks to end Matt's career.
Will Matt and his friends gather enough evidence to expose the experiments before Matt gets suspended from practicing medicine? What will happen to Redman's campaign when he learns the baby is alive?
A chilling account that must be read because... someday this could be reality

RadioladyToronto, OntarioAge: 45-54Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5July 20, 2009RadioladyToronto, OntarioAge: 45-54Gender: femaleThis book is another of Harry Kraus' finest! Definitely not for the faint of heart. His descriptions of the surgeries on the aborted fetuses are very graphic and heart wrenching. The story weaves a number of different characters who all have equally important parts in the novel, leaving you turning the pages to find out what happens next. If you ever sat on the fence with the issue of abortion, this book will bring about a real sense of righteous anger. Worth every cent! But then again, I am a huge fan of this man!
susan5 Stars Out Of 5July 13, 2002susanHarry Kraus quickly became my favorite author, after reading this book. There are several christian authors who write medical stories, but Harry Kraus has a way of pulling you right into the middle of the action. I check his web-site on a frequent basis, to see when another book is coming out. Keep on writing Harry!
Denise5 Stars Out Of 5September 14, 2000DeniseHarry Krauss is a physician who writes great books. This is the first book. Although his books are not a "series" sometimes there are characters from some books who appear in other books. These books are like Christian medical thrillers. You can't put them down!
