Family SecretseBook - 2016
Family Secrets is a medical mystery/love story set in New York City. A New York senator, who hopes to be the next US president, is shot while speaking at a fundraiser. He is rushed to the hospital, but dies as a result of an allergic reaction to the anesthesia he receives. An investigation is launched as to why the treating anesthesiologist, recently recruited by the hospital, failed to see the medical chart entry indicating an allergy to certain anesthesia. Many factors complicate the investigation: the relationship that develops between the anesthesiologist and the hospital's chief neonatologist, who previously had a relationship with the dead senator; the pregnancy of the senator's widow; a hit and run involving a child the neonatologist had with an old lover; and the career hopes of another hospital physician. But family secrets are revealed as the ultimate cause of the senator's death.
