A Good Time To Die

The time is the present. At Cambridge University Hospital a battle is being fought. A battle that is fought daily at hospitals throughout the country. The battle lines are drawn over the question of cost.

In these days of ever tightening budgets and HMO encroachment, hospitals need to act more and more like every other business. If they plan to survive in the long run, they need to control expenses. Unfortunately, providing health care can be quite expensive, and if a patient does not have insurance or is unable to pay, the hospital has no choice but to sustain a loss. No legal choice, that is.

At Cambridge University Hospital Dr. Randy Hill (a physician administrator) has devised an economic plan that includes the elimination of certain costly patients. These are usually elderly, chronically ill patients for whom a slightly premature demise would not be suspicious. But when Michael Santucci unexpectedly passes away, the sparks begin to fly.

Michael Santucci was no ordinary patient. He was a clandestine informer in a major drug smuggling case. Unbeknownst to Dr. Hill, he was also not ill. The DEA, with the grudging help of Dr. Rick Embry, was hiding their star witness in plain view. A plan that was supposed to confound a vengeful Mafia.

Mr. Santucci’s mysterious death leads to a desperate search for his killer (or was it a natural death?) as well as for the massive cocaine shipment, details of which Santucci had not yet disclosed.

The search leads to peril for Dr. Hill, as well as unexpected romance. Both build to a crescendo as plot twists converge towards a gripping final battle fought within the hospital.
