When an unknown attacker is injured in the process of his capture, ER chief David Spier is ostracized for treating the man, a situation that is further complicated when the assailant escapes, prompting Spier to delve into his own past.

HARPERCOLL

The doors to the UCLA Medical Center Emergency Room burst open and a young nurse stumbles in -- blinded, her once-beautiful face hideously blistered and burning from a savage attack by an unknown assailant. A dedicated physician, E.R. Chief Dr. David Spier is no stranger to the terrible ravages of senseless violence. But this tragedy hits too close to home; the victim is a colleague.

A second violent assault suggests the unthinkable: a disturbed man is stalking the Medical Center, and specifically the women who work there. It's up to Dr. Spier to keep the emergency room running smoothly and efficiently, even as his terrified co-workers wonder who might be next. But destiny is about to place him at the very center of a media frenzy that erupts in the wake of the attacks -- when the brutal assailant himself is dragged into the E.R. in handcuffs and placed under Dr. Spier's care…as a patient.

Hindered by a mutinous staff that refuses to administer to the damaged man,up against angry L.A. cops who would rather see the criminal dead than imprisoned, and alarmed media hungry for a lead story at any cost -- David Spier must now make the most difficult ethical decision of his career. But by doing so, he underestimates the power and cunning of the man he is sworn to heal, and inadvertently unleashes a bloody wave of horror that threatens to engulf everyone and everything he cares about. A single act of humanity has made him a pariah in the eyes of the city -- and the target of a twisted, tormented madman's hope and vengeance. David Spier's most sacred oath as a healer has become his death sentence. To save a city under siege and himself, he must descend into the blackest depths of a twisted and vicious mind…to unlock an unspeakable secret that has been hidden away for decades behind closed hospital doors.

A breakneck-paced novel that coils and turns, surprises, chills, and mesmerizes, Do No Harm is a stunningly accomplished work by a powerful new talent. For any true lover of nerve-jangling psychological suspense who has yet to make the acquaintance of Gregg Andrew Hurwitz, the time is now.
