When stressed out Dr. John Meanham
goes on a shooting spree, killing a umber of patients and fellow employees, Dr. Lou Welcome is blamed.
Lou had been overseeing his friend, Dr. Meacham
, a Physicians Wellness
. This organization counsels and tries to help doctors who have psychological problems resulting in their loss of anger. They also council doctors who medicate themselves with drugs and alcohol.
As the story progresses, we observe Lou's compassionate nature wile a number of other characters exhibit unexplained anger that seems to take control of their body for a time, and then, if they haven't done anything fatal, goes away. The person exhibiting this anger seems almost unaware of what happened. We witness a number of tragic events due to this extreme anger. Lou tries to find out what is causing it.
He meets Dr. Darlene Mallory, the First Lady of the United States and they form a bond together, both trying to find answers to this mystery.
The characters are realistically portrayed. Lou's thirteen-year-old daughter Emily is a charmer. The author brings her and Lou to life at moments such as when they are spending time playing monopoly. In reality, Lou is using the game so he can see how Emily is doing with her mother and new step-father. How many parents don't know how to communicate with teenage children? In this novel, the author provides a number of good lessons.
The plot is laid out nicely with some interesting surprises. I found the book to be very entertaining and recommend it to readers who enjoy medical thrillers and good suspense.
