A prominent surgeon at New City Hospital in Cincinnati undergoes serious upheaval in his life, including losing a patient and his operating privileges and endangering the hospital's accreditation status and academic affiliation. When he also loses his research funding he accuses his chairman and Tom Bolling, chief of staff, of ruining his career. He storms out of the hospital and goes missing. Then, the head of research is brutally murdered and suspicion falls on the missing surgeon. The bodies of other individuals who have troubled relations with the surgeon begin to pile up.
The primary investigator, Detective Ron 'Walker' Looney is a retired Air Force criminal investigator and long-time friend of Tom Bolling. Together with a former medical examiner, they piece together a credible case against the missing surgeon. But that case is later blown apart when evidence proves otherwise. Only when another attack occurs with no obvious connection to the surgeon do the police get on the right track. When they discover another assault is planned at the Great American Baseball Park, they must race against time to prevent a murder.
