" -----------------------------PLOT DESCRIPTION------------------------------- An emergency, life-saving brain operation on a 10-year-old girl, whose delayed diagnosis in the hospital E.R. leads to a medical malpractice lawsuit, which becomes a courtroom suspense thriller when a defendant lies under oath. The plaintiffs are represented by the most prominent malpractice attorney on the west coast, a womanizer who has no scruples about how he wins his cases, or conducts his private life. While in law school, he had a brief affair with the female judge who is now hearing the case. She  should have recused herself, but believed no one knew about their secret. The setting is San Francisco in the early 1970's during the Calieornia Malpractice Insurance Crisis In addition, the lives of the three main characters are described in separate chapters interspersed throughout the book, following the growth and development of the three, including explicit description of their sexual lives. The attorney wins a large jury award, then beds his beautiful associate. In addition to the historical accuracy of this time in California-the malpractice insurance crisis of 1960-1970- and the steamy drama of this courtroom suspense thriller, this work re-introduces sex to the American novel.. It also is up-to-date in describing a character who conforms to the latest research reports, i.e., that female sexual drive is just as strong as the male.

About the Author:

The author worked in California during the California medical malpractice Insurance crisis, as well as after 1975, when the MICRA law took effect, limiting the monetary awards for "pain and suffering" in trial verdicts. He also chaired a committee that reviewed all malpractice claims involving a particular hospital. Details of some of the cases he experienced are engraved in his memory, and small portions of these find their way into the novel—probably a common occurrence with writers of realistic fiction. He also continues to follow the national efforts to control the costs of medical malpractice litigation, referred to as Tort Reform ( a tort, in civil law, is a wrongful act ). He believes, with many others, that California’s MICRA law is a good model for national tort reform, with modification.
