The only thing that you would be "Doing Harm" to yourself is by not reading this book!

Dr. Steve Mitchell is a good surgeon. He is also in charge of training the new medical students. Steve is hoping to also further his career. If all goes right then, Steve will have everything...great career, wife, and children. Sadly, luck is not on Steve's side. First his patient goes into kidney failure and his next patient, he almost kills. It seems that there is something more sinister happening at the hospital like a serial killer that wants to teach Steve a lesson.

This book did not read like Mr. Parson's first book but more like Mr. Parson's fourth book. He comes out of the gate to impress. It has been a while since I have read a good medical thriller. I really enjoyed this book. It really felt like I was in the hospital. In fact, it kind of felt like I was in Steve's shoes. However I did have to wonder in the beginning if Steve was incompetent in his medical skills. He did not seem to be a very lucky guy. When his patients start getting sick this is when Steve's compassion shows and makes him a good guy. One that I can root for despite his momentary lapse in judgment. I can't wait to read Mr. Parson's next book. The only thing that you would be "Doing Harm" to yourself is by not reading this book!
