Internist Dr. David Hunter was in Green Valley’s police station. He had not planned to spend his evening giving a statement or being fingerprinted. He had only gone to his office that Saturday to pick up a file. Instead, he found a dead body in exam room three.
David tells his wife, hospital pathologist Dr. Janis Saunders, that the body is that of JM Davenport, the hospital’s ex-CEO. Why Davenport would even be there is as much of a mystery as his death.
There is no shortage of suspects, as most of the town hated Davenport. After leaving Green Valley, he became head of the University’s HMO, specializing in claims denial. One of David’s partners, Dr. Jason Burd, publicly wished him dead. The evidence mounts. Jason is arrested. Can David and Janis clear their fellow doc?
