A terrifying near-future medical thriller debut from a prominent doctor Ali O’Day, a dedicated young neurosurgeon, might have a Nobel Prize in her future—if she can survive the next eleven hours. Under the glare of live television cameras—and with her lover, Dr. Richard Helvelius, and her estranged husband, Kevin, both looking on—Ali is about to implant a revolutionary minicomputer into the brain of a blind boy. If it works, he will see again. But someone wants to stop her triumph. No sooner has she begun to operate than the hospital pagers crackle with the chilling announcement, “Code White.” A bomb has been found in the medical center. But this is no ordinary bomb—and no ordinary bomber. As minutes tick off toward the deadline, Ali suspects that a vast, inhuman intellect lies behind the plot—and that she herself may be the true ransom demand.

If it works, he will see again. But someone wants to stop her triumph. No sooner has she begun to operate than the hospital pagers crackle with the chilling announcement, “Code White.” A bomb has been found in the medical center.

But this is no ordinary bomb—and no ordinary bomber. As minutes tick off toward the deadline, Ali suspects that a vast, inhuman intellect lies behind the plot—and that she herself may be the true ransom demand.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Scott Britz-Cunningham has crafted a sharp, engaging thriller that captures the heart of hospital medicine and absolutely nails the frenetic energy that comes with trying to care for severely ill patients without killing them. Code White is great stuff—one of the most original medical thrillers I’ve read in a long time.” Michael Palmer, New York Times bestselling author
“Talk about a ticking clock propelling a story—this one’s in overdrive…What a heart-thumping ride. Scott Britz-Cunningham is a welcome addition to the thriller genre.” Steve Berry, New York Times bestselling author
“In Britz-Cunningham’s entertaining debut, the media spotlight is on Chicago’s Fletcher Memorial Medical Center…In the middle of [a] delicate procedure, a Code White indicates that there’s a bomb in the hospital. The author, a staff radiologist at Boston’s Brigham and Women’s Hospital, nicely combines the effort to insure the operation’s success and the patient’s recovery with the race to find and defuse the bomb.” Publishers Weekly
