The young Dr. Thomas Parks expects to practice trauma medicine with a distinguished doctor in Port McKinney, Washington. What he does not expect is to be nearly killed within an hour of arriving. The accident changes his life, and with long hours of painful convalescence, Thomas makes a sobering discovery: the physician who has invited Thomas to join his practice is not what he seems. At the center of the conflict is mail-order diagnosis, which flourished until the U.S. mail fraud statutes of 1908.

In its landmark report of 1910, the American Medical Association reported that several physicians had organizations that recorded more than 3,000 postal responses per month, a large percentage of which included money for worthless medicine. Steven F. Havill departs from his well-received mystery series to bring readers this fascinating historical novel.

    " Not a mystery but a good historical fiction. Fraud went on during all time periods. Enjoy his mysteries best. "

    " Memo to publishers: PLEASE stop spoiling 95% of the plot in the jacket copy. Seriously, if it doesn't happen in the first quarter of the book, leave it out or refer to it a little more vaguely. For the love of mystery, knock it off already. "

    " This was a good book...not what I expected. There was the medicine which I was looking for and a side story that went along with it, but it just seemed to drag a little. The part that could have gotten exciting seemed to dwindle. I feel as if the ending could have been written better. "
