Free Novel...Harmful Intent by Robin Cook

Book : Harmful Intent

Author : Robin Cook

Published : 1990

Synopsis : A medical thriller set in the city of Boston during the late 80’s. It is a story of an anesthesiologist, an average doctor working extra hours and diligently.

In a routine Cesarean, a healthy patient suffers inexplicable seizures and eventually dies after being administered a local anaesthetic, her death triggers an 11 million dollar lawsuit against Dr. Jeffery Rhodes. Caught between law suits and a divorce he felt a final blow when charged with second degree murder. Determined to prove his innocence and clear his name finds himself uncovering a conspiracy behind a series of killings under the facade of malpractice cases.

Another great novel from Robin Cook who is a American physician writing novels based on medicine. He has a knack for combining the medical and thriller genre, his storytelling is so influential, you wouldn’t be able to tell the difference between reality and fiction.
