Summary
"Michael MacDougall is a talented trauma surgeon whose life in Seattle is slowly unraveling. Frustrated as an ER doctor and his marriage in trouble, he volunteers with a medical aid charity in the Congo. Soon disconsolate at the lives he cannot save in the desperate conditions of the region, he is shattered by a roadside confrontation with the mercenary Mai Mai that results in unthinkable losses. Back home in Seattle, he is haunted by his experiences in Africa. He tries to become an agent of change and fails. Locked in a downward spiral, he becomes obsessed with making his government listen to him and dreams up an act of ecoterrorism to shock his nation awake."--Provided by publisher
