How does it feel to hold someone's life in your hands? What is it like to cut into someone else's body? What is it like to stand by, powerless, while someone dies because of the incompetence of your seniors? How do you tell a beautiful young man who seems perfectly fit that he has only a few days left to live? Gabriel Weston works in the big-city hospitals of the twenty-first century; a woman in a world dominated by Alpha males. Her world is one of disease, suffering and extraordinary pressure where a certain moral ambiguity and clinical detachment are necessary tools for survival. Startling and honest, her account combines a fierce sense of human dignity with compassion and insight, illuminating scenes of life and death the rest of us rarely glimpse.
