A brilliant doctor gives up his status as a human being when he becomes a Bergmann surgeon--healing fatal sickness and wounds with psychic powers and mechanical precision. Though a great healer, he is an outcast, and he hand his kind wander from emergency to emergency, at the beck and call of MedAm. When not working, he is drinking, lost in a fog, trying to forget the things which he has lost. But when a dying despot hijacks him, he is forced to face what his life has become, and--with the help of a killer for hire--reclaim what it means to be a healer.
