"I was captivated by the tall woman strutting down the wide aisle with a smile on her red, red lips. Slanting yellow sunlight enfolded her like an honor guard, shadowing her tanned skin, highlighting the tight red curls of hair falling around her shoulders. By cinching a belt above the swell of her hips, she turned a shapeless white lab coat into a kind of minidress. The bottom edge hiked up past the middle of her thighs. The rest of her legs, covered by a pair of sheer nylons, ran down and down and down forever. They were the longest legs I’d ever seen, and they took my breath away."
Emily is beautiful, sexy, funny, and a heap of trouble. Everyone sees it except Graham Merkin, a medical student who has just found the strangest thing wedged behind a pink wad of bubblegum…in the backside of a cadaver. Together with his colleagues, Graham will expose an out-of-this-world conspiracy involving mad doctors, bug-eyed police, and maybe even Emily herself. Nothing is what it seems, and even when the answers come, they only raise more questions. Somehow, Graham must decide what’s real and what’s a smokescreen, and since he was never meant to know what he knows, the clock is ticking, and everybody’s looking for him.
