It should have been a routine childbirth. But somehow, the mother died in the delivery, the baby was born brain-damaged, and Jeffrey Rhodes, the anesthesiologist, is running for his life. Charged with malpractice, he is found guilty of harmful intent and reckless disregard for human life. To clear his name, Rhodes must follow a fugitive trail into the heart of medical nightmare. A trail that, for some, may end in suicide--and for others, in the most shocking conspiracy of our time...

I have not read a Robin Cook book in quite some time. Harmful Intent is about the best he has written. The story line is interesting, it makes one wonder if this is at all possible. The only unbelievable scenes in this book are the high speed cars chases. I mean, Really?? Quite an enjoyable read, I would recommend this book to anyone interested in medical thrillers. One last word, it was written in 1989 so one must remember there were no cell phones nor internet access. Makes for a good old fashioned read. Way to go Mr. Cook!!
