Fifth Vial, The
3 journalers for this copy...
What if when you had your blood drawn for routine tests, the laboratory draws an extra tube without you being aware? That tube is then sent off to be tissue-typed and the results put in a massive database. If your tissue make-up turns out to be a perfect match for someone with power or money and the need of a transplant of any kind, you had best stay indoors for a good while!!
THE FIFTH VIAL
Natalie Reyes has a chip on her shoulder. She's had a tough life and worked hard to get herself, against all odds, to Harvard Medical School. But her efforts are thwarted when she is suspended from school. With time before her reinstatement, her mentor sends her to Rio de Janeiro Brazil to present a medical paper. There, Natalie is kidnapped, shot trying to escape, and left for dead in an alley. She survives, but loses a lung. And now, all her dreams are shattered.
Halfway around the world, medical genius Joe Anson is working on a serum that could save millions of lives...if only he can battle a fatal illness long enough to complete his research. Brilliant and paranoid, Anson is running out of time. And those watching from the shadows will stop at nothing to see him succeed.
In Chicago, detective Ben Callahan is hired to find the identity of a dead man with mysterious marks on his body. One lucky break could lead Ben into a conspiracy bigger than just a missing person and a mysterious accident.
Three people, with no apparent connection. Three people who don't realize they hold the key to a secret society with God-like aspirations and roots in antiquity. Three people who will learn the meaning of trust and betrayal, power and genius, lies and truth, in a world where everything is give or take.

I think the original plan was to add it to the Medicine Chest bookbox, but that hasn't run for a long time, so the box of planned books (of which this was the only one registered by another BCer) got stuck on the bottom of a big pile.
Well, I'm rambling, but I do highly recommend this book. Palmer writes great medical thrillers.
