Dr. Adam Knox returns from serving with an NGO in the Central African Republic in disgrace. His attempt to protect patients from a brutal militia ended in disaster. He's a little rougher, a little wiser, and a lot more cynical. His new clinic tends to the vagrant, vulnerable and victimized of LA's streets. It earns from the villains willing to pay for discretion. His cynicism remains until the night a beaten Romanian woman abandons her son on his operating table. She seems to be on the run.
Dr. Adam Knox hat den Drang, das Richtige zu tun, auch wenn es gerade das Falsche ist. Das hat ihn schon in den Bürgerkriegsgebieten Afrikas fast das Leben gekostet. Zurück in L.A. hält er seine Armenklinik mit nächtlichen Notfalleinsätzen seines Söldnerkumpels Sutter über Wasser. Dabei behandelt Knox, von Filmstars bis hin zu Bankräubern, jeden, der ihn bezahlen kann und nicht ins Krankenhaus will. Als eine Unbekannte den kleinen Alex in der Klinik zurücklässt, muss er sich plötzlich mit dem russischen Mob und einem durchgedrehten Großindustriellen herumschlagen. Doch Dr. Knox ist auch diesmal entschlossen, das Richtige zu tun.
A gripping new thriller about a medical doctor with a powerful humanitarian impulse, an unhealthy appetite for risk, and a knack for finding himself between a rock and a hard place. Adam Knox comes from a long line of patrician Connecticut doctors - a line he broke to serve with an NGO in the war-torn Central African Republic. His attempt to protect his patients there from a brutal militia ended in disaster and disgrace, and now he runs a clinic near Los Angeles’s Skid Row, making ends meet by making house calls - cash only, no questions asked.
With a troubled past and a job that attracts too much attention from the law, John March has always been the black sheep of his staid merchant-banking family. That makes the identity of his latest client all the more surprising: his smug older brother, David. But when a body turns up, John finds that he's no longer searching for the woman stalking his brother. Now he's hunting a killer - along a trail that leads ever closer to his brother's door.
John March is a former cop now working as a P.I. in Manhattan. Haunted by his past, work is what keeps him sane, but his current case threatens to have the opposite effect. It involves an attempted extortion; an investment banker with some serious skeletons in his closet; and a money launderer diabolically adept at both psychological and physical intimidation.
John March is back in Manhattan, working as a PI and running from his grief and the expectations of his wealthy family. March takes the case of Rick Pierro, a self-made man who has everything and who's in danger of losing it all. March's own investigation uncovers a blood-stained paper trail that leads him deep into the lives of both insiders and outcasts on the street.
