Availability: 2 in stock
Emergency doctor Jordan Marks notices more nosebleed patients coming into his ER than usual. No big deal – until they begin mysteriously dying. Meanwhile a serial killer is on the loose in LA – and Jordan is the only one who begins to see a connection between the bleeding disease and the killer. The crisis turns personal when his girlfriend gets a nosebleed – and then disappears. Now Jordan has to find her before the serial killer makes her his next victim. In the course of that hunt, while avoiding the serial killer himself, Jordan unravels the threads of what turn out to be a much more elaborate conspiracy. The problem is… Jordan is beginning to get nosebleeds.
This suspenseful thriller – based partly on real news events, partly on a personal experience I had in a Los Angeles emergency room where I used to work.
