About the Book

D. Brewster was the youngest member of his medical school class and one of the few accepted into the dual-training MD/PhD program. Sadly, his promising career went permanently off the rails when he became a lightning rod for a series of tragic and dehumanizing events which caused Brewster to spiral downward into an ever-deepening quagmire of moral decay that also enveloped everyone around him. Years later when Brewster finally becomes the last man standing in a previously orchestrated act of vigilante justice, he reflects on whether or not what he had done was truly a righteous and justifiable act. That judgment would have to be surrendered for others to decide as Brewster is compelled to take up pen and paper to record in shocking detail the evil darkness that overwhelmed him and his colleagues so many years ago. This is the first novel in the DNR Trilogy.


About the Author

A native of Houston, Donald W. Hill, MD, FACP, graduated from Trinity University in San Antonio, Texas, in 1978. After completing his medical school training at the University of Texas Medical School at Houston in 1982, Dr. Hill completed his postgraduate training in internal medicine, hematology, and oncology at the University of New Mexico in Albuquerque in 1987. At the time that he composed this novel, Dr. Hill had completed thirty years of medical practice that included working in multispecialty clinics, solo practice, and everything in between, including academia and clinical research. As a fellow of the American College of Physicians, Dr. Hill is a published scholar but this is his first attempt at a work of fiction. Although approaching the end of his medical career, Dr. Hill was still in practice in Hawaii when he crafted this novel. A self-described angry man safely nestled behind a superficial, amiable facade of banality, Dr. Hill felt compelled to write this novel in an attempt to make peace with God, the universe, and the practice of medicine. Only time will tell whether these lofty objectives have been achieved.
