Harmful Intent

A Medical Thriller

This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


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...

From Publishers Weekly

Feb 04, 1991 – An anesthesiologist, blamed for the deaths of a mother and her newborn infant, discovers that he has been framed for murder. ``This is a fast-paced, albeit improbable, story'' until ``a sudden twist . . . reveals an evil conspiracy that snaps belief,'' wrote PW. ``Cook . . . may be asking for more credulity than many readers are willing, or able, to provide this time out.''

Customer Reviews

Harmful Intent

After being scared out of my wits reading "Coma" and "Pet Cemetery" years ago, I swore I would never read another Robin Cook book. However, I was intrigued by reading a sample of this book. Boy, am I glad I read it? It was great. Now, I'm determined to keep reading more of them. He's my new favorite author!

Harmful Intent

Great read! A real "page-turner"!
