Overview

Gavin Jenkins, a brilliant young doctor with roots in poor, rural Kentucky, saves Baltimore heiress Cleo Talbot from unnecessary surgery after an incorrect diagnosis.  The couple's passionate attraction leads to marriage, and Cleo's elite social and political connections propel Gavin to prominence.  His patient list extends from the dressing rooms of world-famous artists to the heights of international society and, finally, to the inner sanctums of the White House itself.
When the richest man in the world, Nicky Kiskalesi, sets his eyes on billions of dollars of Egyptian oil, he must first topple a government. Nicky seeks Gavin's help, a fateful decision that leads from the waterfront slums of Izmir to secret KGB assassinations and the corrupt thrones of the Middle East, as the fate of the world's energy supply--and Gavin's own life--hang in the balance.

HOOKED, set in the mid-20th century, is based on the real-life "youth doctors" of the 1960s who became as rich and famous as their celebrated patients. HOOKED takes place in New York and Washington, a remote fishing village on the Turkish Riviera, Sweden, Vienna, Cairo and aboard Lydia, the world's most beautiful yacht.

Be sure to read Ruth and Michael's other thriller, BRAINWASHED, which is also available in a NOOK edition.
