Medical Examiner Laurie Montgomery is surprised when she keeps finding cases of a deadly staph infection in patients who have been treated at the Angel surgical hospitals.  When she contacts the owner of the specialty hospitals, she finds that they are doing all they can to stop the infections.  They even closed down in order to disinfect the surgical rooms and tested all the employees for the infection.  But nothing they do can stop the cases from coming.  What is going on here?  Laurie is determined to find out.  But is she putting her own life on the line as she searches for the cause of this outbreak?
