As written you can heal your friends with this, since it only specifies that you're moving damage from "a player card at your location". This includes damage on your friends and their assets. Team up with a friend on Beat Cop (2) and start shooting down 2 HP enemies without taking a test, or healing best friend Mark Harrigan so he can draw more cards and boost his skill value further; all while helping kill enemies and not taking any skill tests.

Definitely consider Shrewd Analysis if you're running these books; Secrets Revealed is very good action compression if you can get to 12 cards, but at 8 it's action neutral if you move (which is worth it to avoid taking a test). This one though is up there for one of the best health healing cards in the game because it does something proactive when you do it. Most healing is very reactive and therefore doesn't help you win a scenario if you would not otherwise be defeated.

Having played a campaign with this as Amanda, it can be extremely tricky to use this! Even if you have a big hand, it’s only one damage…And your allies might not have their Cop out. At the same time, as the seeker, you should probably be focusing on clues... and this doesn’t say “this doesn’t take an attack of opportunity.” Don’t go big hand just so you can play this card. — MrGoldbee · 1118

An hilarious Seeker card, letting you heal and damage for one action, but only in the biggest of Big Hand decks. Harvey likes this, but does anyone else? Maybe Big Hand Mandy or Daisy. Of course, you want to make sure you are taking some damage for this to be useful, and Seekers are notoriously low-Health, so it's a bit of a gamble....

You could activate it for free with Knowledge is Power — Zinjanthropus · 176
True, and Daisy could activated it with her tome action letting her use it for 1 "normal" action on 8-11 cards, which is not great, but, inn a clutch.... — LivefromBenefitSt · 778
Death by chocolate suggested using this to clear Guardian Angel. A smart idea! — MrGoldbee · 1118
Amanda, too — MrGoldbee · 1118
