The author of cutting-edge bestsellers like Jurassic Park and The Andromeda Strain, Michael Crichton captivated millions of fans by skillfully blending medical and scientific fact with pulse-pounding fiction.
Written shortly after Crichton completed his medical internship, A Case of Need depicts the ever-building pressure and pace of a large Boston medical center. Tensions flare–and explode–when a surgical operation tragically ends in death, raising countless questions. Was it accidental malpractice? A violation of the Hippocratic oath? Or cold-blooded murder?
Supplemented with the author’s fascinating appendices on the ethics of modern medicine, A Case of Need is powerful, compelling, informative, and suspenseful–classic Crichton at his best.
