Phillip Sarkis was a good doctor – maybe a little too good. So when he is unexpectedly sued for malpractice after a young patient’s death, his life unravels. He sinks into an alcoholic depression and looses both his family and his high-profile career.  With the assistance of two remarkable women attorneys and unlikely, shadowy underworld characters Sarkis discovers some astonishing things about his patient Moira Hamlin and her husband Hugh, Bonnie -  who is Hamlin’s scheming mistress, and himself.

 Dr. Kowey and Ms. Fox wrote the fast-paced novel to help the public understand the frustrating truths about how the current tort system deals with medical care. Doctors who have been sued or who have witnessed the tragic collapse of their colleagues under the infuriating and often unfair system of litigation, naturally approach their patients differently – if they decide to remain in medicine at all. The hope is that this book will stimulate a real and tangible change in the medical malpractice system, both for the good of the profession and most importantly, for patients everywhere.  

Dr. Peter Kowey, M.D. '71 is an internationally respected expert in heart rhythm disorders. For the last 30 years, he has developed a large referral practice in Philadelphia. His research has led to the development of dozens of new drugs and devices for the treatment of a wide range of cardiac diseases. He has authored hundreds of scientific articles and textbook chapters.

He is also professor of medicine at Jefferson Medical College, adjunct professor of pharmacology at MCP–Hahnemann School of Medicine and president of the Heart Center of the Main Line Health System.
