Synopsis

You think you've had it up to here with congress? You can't hold a match to how Dr. Duncan Lathram feels. And he's got good reason. But he's not the type to sit back and simply gripe about those smug, pork-spending, lobbyist-loving, tax-grabbing Senators and Congressmen. He's doing something about them by imposing his own brand of term limits.

"A taught, battle-of-wits medical thriller that turns on vengeance. A smart, exciting tale that's given added dimension by Wilson's investing the villain with a righteous cause for his maniacal behavior." (Publishers Weekly)

"Wealthy plastic surgeon Duncan Lathram would seem to have it made. Thanks to the aid of his brother, a hotshot pharmacologist and implant inventor, his clientele is the rich and famous. But then representatives and senators on a congressional guidelines committee, all of whom have had close associations with Duncan, start dying. Duncan's young surgical colleague, Gina Panzella, starts putting implants, accidents, and motives together, and the action in Wilson's medical thriller picks up. The smoothness with which Wilson develops the plot, the fact that all the major characters are believable human beings, and the mounting excitement as the pieces of a murderous puzzle fall into place should keep readers rapt right to the last page." (Booklist)

"Implant features an attractive and well-spoken villain whose warped take on things is understandable, if not justified...a terrific story." (Kirkus Reviews)
