Published by Michael Palmer
The novel opens as Dr. John Merriman, an experienced physician, goes on a shooting spree at his office killing his business partner, staff, two patients and himself. The blame for this horrifying incident falls on Dr. Lou Welcome who worked with Merriman years before as a counselor after John’s medical license had been revoked for drug addiction. After hearing the news of the violent outburst, Lou is in shock like everyone else, but mostly he is incredulous. How could John, an excellent doctor who had fought hard for his license to be restored, commit such a heinous act? As Lou investigates further, the terrifying evidence he finds takes him down a path to an unspeakable conspiracy that seems to lead directly to the White House and those in the highest positions of power.
