There is a high cost to some things in medicine and it's not always the patient who pays. Can Rebecca find the faith and wisdom she needs to make the right call? The clock is ticking and the pressure is on.

Rebecca Jackson has dedicated her adult life to the discovery of synthetic blood, atonement for a teenage car accident that resulted in a small boy getting HIV after receiving a transfusion of contaminated blood. Her research takes a great leap forward after a trip to Africa, when she finds she can see problems in an entirely new way-although she has no idea why. Noah Linebrink's life purpose was determined in that same car accident. He's now a researcher for a competing pharmaceutical company, and is tasked with poaching Becca to work with his firm. That means confronting their joint past, a task made more difficult by the threats they start getting. . I didn't necessarily understand all the science (much the same way as I never understood the technobabble in Star Trek: TNG), but that didn't stop me enjoying it. Lip Reading was well-written, with a detailed and engaging plot, interesting characters and a lot of interrelationships that only became apparent as the story progressed. Excellent suspense.
