Overview
#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLING AUTHOR MICHAEL CRICHTON'S EDGAR AWARD-WINNING DEBUT NOVEL

The author of cutting-edge bestsellers like Jurassic Park and The Andromeda Strain--and creator of television's ER--Michael Crichton has captivated millions of fans by skillfully blending medical and scientific fact with pulse-pounding fiction.

A Case of Need is Crichton's award-winning first novel, written shortly after completing his medical internship. Set against the ever-building pressure and pace of a large Boston medical center, tensions flare--and explode--when a surgical operation tragically ends in death, raising countless questions. Was it accidental malpractice? A violation of the Hippocratic oath? Or cold-blooded murder?

Supplemented with the author's fascinating appendices on the ethics of modern medicine, A Case of Need is powerful, compelling, informative, and suspenseful--classic Crichton at his best.
