Working in a mobile clinic while struggling with the challenges of PTSD, veteran doctor Nick Garrity searches for a missing war buddy and finds himself pitted against a terrifying psychopath who is disguising some of his kills as suicides. By the author of The Second Opinion. Reprint. A best-selling book.

McMillan Palgrave

Surgeon Nick Garrity, a vet suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder, spends his days and nights dispensing medical treatment from a mobile clinic to the homeless in D.C. and Baltimore. In addition, he is constantly on the lookout for his best friend who was recruited for a secret military mission four years ago, never to be seen again. Then there's the case of Belle Coates, an ICU nurse who appears to have killed herself…but left a subtle clue for her sister, Jillian, that connects her with Nick.

Now it's up to Nick and Jillian, a psychiatric nurse, to find out what really happened. Together, they determine that everyone involved in one specific surgical case is mysteriously dying, one by one... Soon their discoveries will pit them against Franz Koller, the highly paid assassin who specializes in the art of the "non-kill"—murder that does not look like murder. And Nick and Jillian are slated to be the next victims…

A patron review from the Adult Summer Game: "This is a fast-paced novel following an army doctor with P.T.S.D. as he tries to find the man who saved his life in a suicide bombing in Afghanistan. Along the way he teams up with a nurse who has died suspiciously and is linked to his search. As they delve deeper they become the targets of a professional hit-man."

This book started a little slow and confusing, but then it took off and finished well. 7 of 10 for me.

Not one of Michael Palmers best. The story starts out very interesting but seems to drag out to long. The final chapter seems endless and is not believable.
