At the headquarters of Boston's Eastern Quality Health, the wealthy and powerful CEO is brutally murdered. She's not the first to die--nor the last. A vicious serial killer is on the loose and the victims have one thing in common: they are all high-profile executives in the managed care industry. Dr. Will Grant is an overworked and highly dedicated surgeon. He has experienced firsthand the outrages of a system that cares more about the bottom line than about the life-and-death issues of patients. As a member of the Hippocrates Society, Will seeks to reclaim the profession of medicine from the hundreds of companies profiting wildly by controlling the decisions that affect the delivery of care. But the doctor's determination has attracted a dangerous zealot who will stop at nothing to make Will his ally. Soon Will is both a suspect and a victim, a pawn in a deadly endgame. Then, in one horrible moment, Will's professional and personal worlds are destroyed and his very life placed in peril.

Read this in book format. It was amazing! I believe I've missed a very good thing over the years by not reading his novels. I will definitely begin the enjoyment of doing so.

The characters in this book jumped off the page and I could definitely see a movie being made from it. The story line was similar to another book he wrote, but the way I felt about the characters in the book easily made up for it. If you don't read the books back to back (like I did) you might not really notice!


too didactic.
