Overview

Joe Nelson is a pediatrician in Eastern Kentucky and is being sued for malpractice involving the death of a four-year-old girl. The child was the niece of the wealthiest man in town, and the trial is not going well. Then it gets worse. While sitting in his car outside his lawyer's office, someone shoots at Joe. The police seem convinced that he has faked the shooting, especially since the shot was fired with his own gun. The next day in court, Joe realizes that his patient's death was not an accident or malpractice, it was murder. When one of the plaintiffs is murdered, Joe becomes the prime suspect. He must use all of his medical knowledge and deductive reasoning to solve the crime-and save his own life.

...You have some excellent sharp-tongued repartee among the characters ... very enjoyable (p. 190). An unattractive man with two beautiful women is bound to draw attention. Great line (p. 191). All in all, you have created a well-crafted mystery. Your prose is clear and fluid, and you have an excellent ear for dialogue....

Dr. Joe Nelson is a pediatrician everyone likes. So, why is he divorcing, being sued for malpractice and being shot at. Once you imagine this character through words you will find yourself rooting for him and wanting to know someone just like him.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book! It was suspenseful and really well written. This book would appeal to a wide audience and I found it especially interesting from a medical standpoint.

I truly enjoyed Paul Jansen’s book, Mal Practice!  It was one of those books that I just couldn’t put down and found myself looking at the clock wondering how it got to be midnight and saying, “just one more chapter.” I admit that I had a feeling, early on in the story, about ‘who done it,’ but there are several twists and turns throughout the book that make you need to continue. I would recommend this book to anyone interested in a good, page-turning, suspenseful novel.
