Vultures are circling over the swamp. While jogging, Dr. Eric Darcy discovers the body of a patient’s husband, the father of a baby about to be born by surrogate.
Concern for the widow draws Eric into the investigation. Was photographer Wes Choate murdered because he was cheating on his wife, or was he using his photos to blackmail someone? And why has the surrogate mother suddenly developed an antagonism toward Wes?
Assisting his sister-in-law, a private investigator, Eric struggles to make sense of seemingly random clues while protecting his patient from mounting danger. The puzzle pieces snap together in a fast-paced climax that could cost the obstetrician his life.
