Item description for Death, Dear Doctor by Alvin Harris...
The secretive world of the most respected profession is tarnished by murder, prejudice, greed and sexual exploitation. To the horror of the medical world, the popular dean of a midwestern medical school is shot and killed before an audience of shocked physicians. The assailant's bullet is meant for an internationally-famous cardiac surgeon, Dr. Harry Dellinger, who shares the speaker's platform with the murdered dean. A number of attempts on Dr. Dellinger's life ensue. His reputation as a womanizer incurs the hatred of his wife, as well as a jilted lover, and a neurotic colleague among others. Dr. Josh Harrington, who tells the story, is a widower and long-time friend of the beleaguered Dr. Dellinger. Harrington is asked by the homicide bureau of the Chicago Police Department to act as liaison between the medical community and the police. While searching for clues among old nursing personnel files, Josh Harrington is aided by the head of the nursing school, Ms Maggie Ballard. Not since his days as an intern at Cook County Hospital had he seen Maggie. Pent-up emotions arising from their youthful association burst into an unbridled love affair while they attempt to aid the police. A ribbon of intrigue binds the fast-moving plot as men of wealth and standing are stripped of hypocritical self-righteousness and exposed for their prejudices, greed, sexual exploits and complicity in illegal abortions---all scrupulously concealed from the public.
