With ailing health, Stella waits for a new heart. Fortunately, she is next on the 'Waiting List.'
But things don't always go as planned. Could somebody with great wealth and power
buy their place ahead of her, causing her death?

Stella's daughter, Ellen Jennings, unable to accomplish
retribution through the court system, seeks revenge. Her
sorrow and bitterness grow into hostility. Using her medical
background, she creates her own remedial yet profitable institution,
an underground ritual that will allow her to retaliate
against the society that disrespected her mother to death.
Assisted by a small group of underhanded partners,
including two greedy and disreputable surgeons, 'The Oasis' is
born, a modified farm house constructed far away from society
and along the marshy swamp lands.

Eight months later, fifteen kidnappings have occurred in
the New Orleans area and there is no evidence to be found. Detectives
Adam Beckett and Nicole Garcia keep their noses to
the grindstone and attempt to unearth the motive behind these
abductions, but all efforts only lead to frustration.

Ultimately, an innocent, but crafty young lady named
Abby Collins is kidnapped for her body parts and unborn
child. Can her actions be the demise of 'The Oasis' and the
redemption of the unfortunate victims before her?
