Act of Murder
by John Bishop MD
Drawing on his years of experience as a practicing surgeon, Bishop entertains readers using his unique insights into the medical world.
Doc Brady became an orthopedic surgeon to avoid being surrounded by death. But now it's everywhere around him.
One spring day in 1994 Houston, Dr. Jim Bob Brady witnesses his neighbor's ten-year-old son killed by a hit-and-run driver. An accident, or an act of murder? After the death, Brady enlists the help of his twenty-year-old son J. J. and his wife Mary Louise in chasing down clues that take them deeper and deeper into a Houston he never imagined existed. In the process, they discover a macabre conspiracy stretching from the ivory towers of the largest teaching hospital in Texas, to the upper reaches of Houston's legal community, to the shores of Galveston.
Doc Brady soon realizes that the old adage remains true: The love of money is the root of all evil.
