Can medical lasers cause cancer? Dr. Jackson Baer, a retired ophthalmologist, has completed a research study showing how the excimer laser, used for photorefractive eye surgery, triggers cellular mutations which lead to cancer. The publication of this study promises to be a tremendous blow to the highly profitable laser eye surgery industry. Baer suddenly dies under mysterious circumstances, but only after telling his young protégé, Dr. Terry Blake about his study. Blake enlists pathologist and former girlfriend Christine Dion and his friend and attorney Russell Sampson to find out what really happened to Baer, and also to locate the now missing laser study. Lurking in the shadows is industrial spy and assassin Sherman Stiles. He’s been assigned the job of suppressing Dr. Baer’s study by any means possible. And Stiles isn’t the only one gunning for Blake. Young and talented attorney Bryant McShay launches a legal barrage against the doctor designed to ruin Blake financially and destroy his medical career. Can Blake recover the study? And, if he does, can he survive long enough to see that the truth is exposed? People must learn the costly price they’ve paid for their fatal focus.
