Did the disgraced surgeon abandon his sacred oath to become a killer? Or did the hospital itself have Law permanently silenced? As Charlie digs deeper, he discovers just how bad the world of medicine could be for his health.

So, when Charlie’s investigation gets tangled up with Sean’s business, someone’s going to need a doctor…or an undertaker.
