Gene therapy has inundated Malibu, California, bringing opposition, competition, and the sweet smell of money to everyone at the local medical\ school. Dr. Ahmed Adams, known as Medi to his coworkers, is a junior faculty member at Malibu Med, home to lucrative trials of designer drugs to combat cancer and aging. As Medi works his way through racks of cages and meticulously counts the dead, he realizes the day of reckoning has arrived.
Medi thinks he is on his way. With all his hopes of realizing success, fame, and fortune pinned on a study sponsored by Ahlus Inc., a local biotech company, Medi willingly serves as a corporate puppet, even though every woman he meets is more interested in the results of his study than in him. Everything is on the line for Medi and the company that has gambled its future on the outcome of the trials and FDA approval. But when animal rights activists sabotage the testing at Malibu Med, the trial and Ahlus are propelled into a crisis.
In this medical thriller, time will tell if Medi is the culprit or the victim of a far-reaching assault by competitors. As his career and the survival of the company hang in the balance, one certainty remains - the truth is the last thing anyone wants to see revealed.
