A medical thriller that isn't, in a way. The lives of several people are taken in a mysterious way. The methods cause suspicion to land on Dr. Harry Corbett. To save himself, Corbett must track down the killer himself.

The medical part is that it takes a doctor or otherwise medically trained person to commit these murders. But there isn't any mysterious disease or unusual treatment involved. It is simply an evil person using his medical knowledge. There is a backstory here about the evil person and one of his victims, which complicates the story, adds interest.

Good airplane reading. ( )

Whilst this had a certain air of deja vu having similar plot elements to a Robin Cook book I had read previously (insurance companies killing expensive patients to save money) there was a distinct difference in implementation of these plot elements. In Silent Treatment the story is more about the ramifications of those acts & the people involved in them, than the acts themselves.

Specifically, a friendly doctor, Harry Corbett, has his wife go in for what should be a rather run of the mill neurosurgery operation, only before she even gets to the operating theatre she dies. Blame is thrust upon Harry by a fellow doctor who had been planning to run away with his wife, and as Harry works to clear his name the situation becomes murkier than it initially appeared.

Overall, it was an excellent medical thriller that was thoroughly enjoyable with a climactic ending that wrapped the subplots up nicely. Would recommend for fans of medical thrillers, or thrillers in general. ( )

What a great read!! Kind of terrifying-behind the scenes murders of
those costing the insurance companies money. This would make a great movie-as long as Tom Cruise isn't cast as the main character. ( )

ok

With his wife, Evie, scheduled for surgery the next day, Dr. Harry Corbett goes to the hospital for what he hopes will be a quiet evening of reconciliation. In recent weeks Evie, never quick to share her feelings, has been more closed and distant than ever.

But when Harry reaches Evie's room, it is too late for reconciliation. Shockingly, without warning, Evie is dead. The police suspect homicide. And their only suspect is Dr. Harry Corbett.

Dr. Harry Corbett is accused of killing his wife, from whom he was becoming estranged. Then he's accused of another death & another. Bewildered, declaring his innocence, he seeks the real killer. ( )
