Summary
"Steve Mitchell, happily married with a wife and two kids, is in line for a coveted position at Boston's University Hospital when his world goes awry. His over-reaching ambition causes him to botch a major surgery, and another of his patients mysteriously dies. Steve's nightmare goes from bad to worse when he learns that the mysterious death was no accident but the act of a sociopath. A sociopath he knows and who has information that could destroy Steve's career and marriage. A sociopath for whom killing is more than a means to an end: it's a game. Because he is under a cloud of suspicion and has no evidence, he knows that any accusations he makes won't be believed. So he must struggle to turn the tables, even as the killer skillfully blocks his every move. Detailing the politics of hospitals, the heirarchy among doctors and the life and death decisions that are made by flawed human beings, Doing Harm marks the debut of a major fiction career"--
