Series: Earl Garnet
(From the publisher):
Dr. Earl Garnet has just broken the cardinal rule of modern medicine: He publicly blames a powerful HMO for practicing "no-fault murder" in the death of an eighteen-month-old baby. The HMO strikes back, igniting a debilitating boycott of St. Paul's Hospital.
Then the true bloodletting begins. A doctor is found brutally murdered, his throat cut ear to ear.
Blamed for the chaos, Dr. Garnet initiates his own investigation. To find answers, he wades deep into the murky, surreal workings of today's health-care industry--with no insurance that he'll come out alive.
