The first three books in the Kurtz and Barent mystery series, now available in one convenient volume!
Surgeon Richard Kurtz has a reputation at Easton Medical Center as a tough guy, a reputation that he considers absurd, despite the 300-pound biker on a drug induced rampage who Kurtz recently knocked out in the ER. Kurtz has a growing practice, a luxury apartment on the East Side of Manhattan and a beautiful girlfriend.
Lew Barent has seen a lot of dead bodies in his job as a homicide detective. Barent has chronic migraine headaches, a wife and daughter he dotes on, a son-in-law he can barely stand and a job that he’s looking forward to leaving.
Fate, and murder, bring Kurtz and Barent together, but it turns out the two men, seemingly so different, have a lot in common: they don’t pull their punches, they never give up, they have an obsessive need to see justice served, and neither runs from a fight.
In Surgical Risk: when Kurtz’ former girlfriend, obstetrician Sharon Lee, is found strangled in a hospital call room, Kurtz and Barent are drawn into a twisted tale of murder, betrayal and brutal revenge.
In The Anatomy Lesson: when anatomy professor Rod Mahoney is found torn to pieces in his office, Kurtz and Barent must hunt the murderer, while the murderer is hunting Kurtz.
In Seizure: When elderly philanthropist Eleanor Herbert dreams that she’s witnessed a murder and a young hospital administrator turns up dead, Kurtz and Barent investigate a decades old conspiracy that the organized crime families of New York will kill to keep secret.
