About the Book

A deeply flawed individual, J. D. Brewster was afflicted with chronic, intrusive, dark and violent thoughts that alienated the medical student from not only his colleagues, but also from everyone he had ever known. His life was already disintegrating when he somehow miraculously survived a murder attempt that sadly left him with not only serious permanent physical injuries, but also with a seething hatred and an all-consuming compulsion to seek revenge.

 

Engrossed in the brutal and dehumanizing clinical clerkship rotations, Brewster spirals downward into an ever-deepening quagmire of moral despair. Upon the death of his fiancé, worsening spiritual isolation propels Brewster to embrace the secret clinical justice system that was hiding amongst the shadows at the Gulf Coast College of Medicine.

 

After successfully recruiting several other grievously traumatized victims of violent crimes, Brewster successfully orchestrates a shocking act of vigilante retribution within the very halls of an institution that was auspiciously dedicated to the art of medical care.

 

In this final installment of a medical thriller trilogy, a dispirited medical student is willing to sacrifice a promising career to become a vigilante, but in the end, he must eventually face the truth as his life comes full circle.


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 he composed this novel, Dr. Hill had completed thirty years of medical practice. He has worked in multispecialty clinics, solo practice, and everything in between, including academia and clinical research. 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 he was 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 he has achieved these lofty objectives.
