Jeremy Cramer, M.D. is the next Einstein of infectious disease research. While working on a way to revive water submersion victims, he makes a breakthrough discovery in AIDS research that thrusts him into the center of a media frenzy. But the publicity turns negative and his marriage reaches the breaking point when he accidentally infects a colleague and his negligence allows his son to contract a life-threatening disease. The viruses test the limits of his new formula and his ethics. In his frantic efforts to save his son and his marriage, he must decide whether to allow his child to die or violate the rights of a young transplant donor. The choice forces him to stand face-to-face with the unfathomable love required to sacrifice an only son.

Taut with emotional suspense, author Sandra Glahn catapults readers into the world of medical ethics, exploring the desperate lengths folks will go to find a cure.

I was hooked from the prologue. In her first solo novel, Glahn master-wordsmiths a must-read plot combination: a spicy dose of controversial ethics and deception, mixed in with heart-wrenching drama, which excels as a true nail-biting thriller. I loved Informed Consent!Lesa Engelthaler, author, Dallas Morning News book reviewer
