Second book in the Declan Murphy series
Grief has stolen Declan Murphy’s will and his way. Are malpractice allegations going to destroy his reputation as well?
In “Two Drifters”, Dr. Declan Murphy faces medico-legal accusations that can potentially destroy his Ob-Gyn career. Still practicing on the faculty of the Medical University of South Carolina, Declan is struggling to cope with the tragic loss of his wife Helene Eastland. Declan’s clinical work and commitment to medicine have deteriorated and he is spiraling into greater depths of apathy and anger. Things come to a head when a pair of itinerant and nasty drifters accuse him of negligence in the death of their newborn and Declan finds himself being sued for medical malpractice.
But something is amiss with this couple and Declan Murphy begins investigating who they are and how they showed up in his examination room. He discovers this isn’t the couple’s first pregnancy loss nor is it their first lawsuit. Declan’s efforts to find the truth leads him to the discovery of unimaginable evil. These discoveries and his personal and professional redemption will not be possible without the help of his lawyer, and only remaining friend, Rosemary Winslow.
