You have crushing chest pain and every labored breath you take feels like it may be your last. As you are drifting into a mindless stupor due to the sedation that's preparing you for emergency angioplasty, you hear the invasive cardiologist comment to his colleague "His insurance pays next to nothing. That's what he'll get from me. One pass and I'm done." What if cardiologists across the country were part of a secret network--a cartel--that determined what medical procedures you were given based upon your insurance coverage reimbursement rates rather than your medical needs? If you didn't think this could happen to you, you'll think twice after you read "The Cardiac Cartel".From the Inside Flap:
Floating through the corridors of some of the nation's most prestigious hospitals were unspoken whispers of a powerful wealth driven cartel of Cardiologists. Their expertise in Angioplasty was second to none, but the deceit and treachery from which they derived their fortune remained shrouded in secrecy.
For Dr. Peter Pavano the first days of his fellowship in Angioplasty at Connecticut General Hospital set in motion a chain of events that would pit him against the Cartel. Now a fugitive from justice and on the top of the Cartel's assassination list, Peter realizes his only hope lay in his past--a past shrouded even more deeply than the Cartel's.
Peter has a hunch that digging into the Cartel's past will uncover the weak link he needs to clear his name and destroy the Cartel. Peter's notoriety rivals Robin Hood's as he bands with an unlikely group of characters to fight against both the Cartel's assassins and the government's tentacles--tentacles the Cartel have masterfully unleashed against him.
