Nerve Damage - Tom Combs
ER physician and medical researcher, Drake Cody, has created an experimental drug that may help the paralyzed walk. A diabolical predator has learned of the priceless research and will stop at nothing-including murder- to obtain it. When Drake's helicopter rescue flight touches down poolside at a Lake Minnetonka estate, he finds the glamorous attorney representing his breakthrough dead of a suspicious drowning. Police suspect foul play and discover evidence of her hidden life of sexual obsession and criminal business dealings. Within hours, one of Drake's research colleagues is shot and arrives at the ER near death. Drake battles to save his dying friend while gripped by fear that a devastating secret from his past has resurfaced. The stakes ratchet ever-higher as Drake, his wife Rachelle and their two children are swept into an international firestorm of greed and violence. Together Drake and Rachelle struggle to try and save what matters most-their children, their love and their lives. Can they survive?
