There are many ways to die in a hospital…being sick is only one of them.
Chief resident Steve Mitchell is the quintessential surgeon: ambitious, intelligent, confident. Charged with molding a group of medical trainees into doctors, and in line for a coveted job, Steve's future is bright. But then a patient mysteriously dies, and it quickly becomes clear that a killer is on the loose in his hospital. A killer set on playing a deadly game with Steve. A killer holding information that could ruin his career and marriage. Now, alone and under a cloud of suspicion, Steve must discover a way to outsmart his opponent and save the killer's next victim before the cycle repeats itself again and again…
A chilling and compelling thriller that also takes you into the hospital and details the politics and hierarchy among doctors, as well as the life and death decisions that are made by flawed human beings, Kelly Parsons' Doing Harm marks the gripping debut of a major fiction career.

The author knows the atmosphere well which is a real attribute to the book. Reading Doing Harm enters the reader into the world of healthcare in a informative and smart way. However, the problem I have with the book is two-fold: First, the characters are thinner than John Grisham’s character. They are completely stock with little agency. The second issue is with the motivation of the antagonist. I think the premise was excellent, but an additional 100 or so pages to compliment the antagonist’s motivation and flesh out the characters a bit more would have been helpful.
What a page turner!
