When the head of San Francisco's largest HMO dies in his own hospital, no one doubts that it is anything but the result of massive injuries inflicted by a random hit-and-run accident. But the autopsy soon tells a different story - an overdose of potassium killed him, and the attending physician, Eric Kensing, becomes the prime suspect in a high-profile homicide. Homicide lieutenant Abe Glitsky, though hindered by the inept bunglings of two politically appointed cops assigned to the investigation, quickly sets his sights on Kensing. Desperate and in need of an attorney, Kensing turns to lawyer Dismas Hardy for his defense. But as the pressure mounts to indict Kensing, Hardy goes on the offensive, believing that the murder had little to do with his client, and everything to do with business. Hardy knows that all is not well with the HMO, and makes a terrifying discovery: too many patients have been dying, many of them victims of murder - and it looks like it is the hospital that is killing them. His own marriage tested and his family strained as he struggles to save his client, Hardy must uncover a twisting conspiracy of avarice and violence that takes the lives it is sworn to save. A timely and gripping novel that puts lives - and a long-standing friendship - at grave risk. Download and start listening now!

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Lynne | 2/4/2011

    " Can't really recommend it to anyone... the character of Dismas, the defense attorney, proves to be a gelatinous blob of mopiness that the author occasionally tries to make appear deep, troubled and many-layered. If he has layers, they're each more 'dismal' than the last. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Joe | 8/25/2010

    " Not the best in the series, but an interesting storyline none the less. Nice to see some old characters pop back into these novels. "

    " A scary look at "managed health care". "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Peg | 10/28/2009

    " Great murder mystery solved by Abe Glitsky and Dismas Hardy. Revolves around a California hospital, cost containment, murder of chief of hospital. All set in SF area. Couldn't put it down. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Eileen | 6/29/2009

    " A great book about health care and HMO's. Many characters, I had to make a list of them because sometimes the author would use the 1st name and other times the last name. The ending was a ride and the characters were all rich. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nancy | 6/24/2009

    " It took me a while to get into this book. Once I did, it was good, but not great. I was pretty sure from early on whodunit and I was right. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cathy | 3/31/2009

    " Enjoyed the book and, as usual with John Lescroart's books, came away with some usable knowledge. I enjoy the relationship between Glitsky and Hardy and especially enjoy listening to the book on CD. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 E. | 2/12/2009

    " A typical Lescroat: always captivating and easy to read. "
