Overview

"There are many ways to die in a hospital being sick is only one of them. "

Chief resident Steve Mitchell is the quintessential surgeon: ambitious, intelligent, confident. Charged with molding a group of medical trainees into doctors, and in line for a coveted job, Steve's future is bright. But then a patient mysteriously dies, and it quickly becomes clear that a killer is on the loose in his hospital. A killer set on playing a deadly game with Steve. A killer holding information that could ruin his career and marriage. Now, alone and under a cloud of suspicion, Steve must discover a way to outsmart his opponent and save the killer's next victim before the cycle repeats itself again and again

A chilling and compelling thriller that also takes you into the hospital and details the politics and hierarchy among doctors, as well as the life and death decisions that are made by flawed human beings, Kelly Parsons' "Doing Harm "marks the gripping debut of a major fiction career."

When Steve Mitchell, chief resident at Boston’s acclaimed University Hospital, is introduced by narrator Petkoff, he’s a man whose speech rings with confidence when discussing his happy marriage and bright future. There’s elation in his voice as he describes his joy at exercising his surgical skill. But when one of his patients dies mysteriously, Petkoff begins to ramp up the tension. More deaths follow and Steve takes the blame, but he soon begins to realize that Gigi, the brilliant, beautiful, and promising med student with whom he had a one-night stand, is a homicidal lunatic. As protagonists go, Steve is a not particularly likeable. But Petkoff skillfully handles Steve, taking the doctor through major mood swings—from smug self-satisfaction and arrogance to puzzlement, concern, surprise, and, finally, despair. Enacting the murderous med student, Petkoff tones down the insanity in favor of an oddly playful and eager attitude that is positively chilling. A St. Martin’s hardcover. (Feb.)
