Its name is ARTIE - Assisted Robotic Tissue Incision and Extraction - a miracle of bio-engineering that is about to revolutionise the field of neurosurgery.
Dr Jessie Copeland, a respected young surgeon at Eastern Mass Medical Center, knows ARTIE better than anyone. And she knows that it's too soon to be using the tiny robot on a living patient's brain. But Jessie's department chief is too busy to worry much about ethics.
And neither of them has any idea that the media circus surrounding the announcement of ARTIE's development is about to attract a patient from their worst nightmares.

Claude Malloche is a killer for whom murder is both an art and a pleasure. Merciless, shadowy, more rumoured about than known. No one can identify his face. Now Malloche has a deadly brain tumour, and he intends to have the best neurosurgeon in the world operate on it.

To ensure Jessie's co-operation, Malloche has devised a plan of intimidation that puts at risk her life and the lives of hundreds of innocent people. Neurosurgery requires nerves of steel, but in coming up with a scheme to honour her oath as a doctor yet thwart a ruthless killer, Jessie will be performing the most complex surgery of her career - on a knife-edge of terror.

Not sure what to think of this book, but it was 4 hardbacks for £1, so I said it couldn't hurt trying ....
