Grace Paine, eccentric statistician, and Amir Baum, new medical intern, see their romance caught up in an ever-bloodier power struggle for Manhattan's leading hospital. Who brutally murdered the hospital's young vice president, found "mostly on the floor?" A Hasidic sect from Brooklyn is clearly bent on taking over. But New York's banking elites seem to have their own plan. And who is the distant figure pulling strings? As bodies pile up around them, Amir and Grace must find themselves and each other.
