The Face Transplant

Dr. Matthew MacAulay is a facial transplant surgeon working in a prestigious New York hospital. He is forced at gunpoint to perform a facial transplant in the middle of the night. The surgical team includes Dr. Sarah Larsson the anesthetist and his scrub nurse Marcia Lopez. They work under intense pressure but unfortunately the patient dies. The next day Matthew learns that Dr. Tom Grabowski, leader of the facial transplant program in Palo Alto, died last night. Initially classified as a heart attack, Matthew is suspicious. Tom was a close friend and mentor to Matthew. He goes to Palo Alto and learns that Tom was murdered. Both facial transplant centers are being funded by the government covertly to try and perfect facial transplantation. The Secretary of Defense, Quentin Taylor personally oversees the project. Matthew is stunned to learn that Tom recently developed a compound that allows facial transplants to be performed seamlessly. No scars, no evidence of a face transplant. The surgeon can now put a new face on a person with immediate healing and invisible scars. The possibilities are endless. Tom had also pioneered a surgical robot named Alice. She is the next generation surgical robot, not only able to assist but also possessing almost human thought capabilities. When Matthew returns to New York he visits his mother Caroline MacAulay. She is saddened by the death of Dr. Grabowski. He was an old family friend. He stood by her raising Matthew as a single parent. 
The Secretary of Defense is very concerned by the death of Dr. Tom Grabowski, he was the leader in transplant research and held a great deal of highly valuable intellectual property. Technology that they would not want to fall into the wrong hands. Quentin Taylor assigns Jonathan to investigate Tom’s death and ensure no vital secrets have gone missing. Jonathan carries a personal vendetta against Matthew. Within no time he has convinced the Secretary of Defense that Matthew is behind the death of Tom Grabowski. Jonathan also convinces him that Matthew may be selling secrets. Matthew must go underground and evade the relentless pursuit of Jonathan. He continues to investigate the murder of Tom with the help of his friends. 
Quentin takes a meeting with the President of the United States, A. Alexander Middleton. He informs him that the transplant program has been compromised by a member of the team, Dr. Matthew MacAulay. The President orders Matthew to be contained, at all costs. The President is happy to learn that the Binary Sequence, a classified document, has not been compromised.
