In the blink of an eye, a fisherman’s idyllic vacation turns into a terrifying struggle for survival. One moment he is trout fishing a remote river in the icy mountains of New Zealand. The next, he witnesses a cold-blooded drug-related murder and finds himself on the wrong end of a manhunt.
As he tries to contend with starvation and the harsh and uncompromising wilderness, Ryan must also deal with killers on his trail and the turmoil within his frightened and malnourished mind.
Meanwhile, Auckland detectives are hunting the drug-dealers themselves, suspecting that the organized crime syndicate is behind a rash of deaths related to the manufacture and distribution of crystal meth (ice), including that of an innocent teenage schoolgirl. The detectives’ investigation and the fisherman’s ordeal collide in the rocky, forested wilderness, where a brazen Maori police officer must salvage justice from lawlessness.

From 5 star review: This book has some very sensitive topics but sometimes these topics need to be addressed. The author wrote a wonderful crime thriller that kept you on your toes every minute. I couldn’t put the book down. It just kept those pages turning and turning.
The first and the most popular in the Brier Hospital series: If you believe that television, movies, or medical fiction, accurately portray what it’s like to be an acute care physician or a critically ill patient in a hospital today, think again. Dr. Joseph Polk is an intelligent, charismatic, and powerful member of the medical staff at Brier Hospital in the San Francisco Bay Area. This once brilliant physician, a functional psychopath for most of his career, has decompensated. Nurses and front-line physicians see Polk’s indifference, incompetence, and stubborn cruelty, but the medical staff and the hospital administration are willfully blind. Patients suffer, and worse. Jack Byrnes has finally completed his training in Intensive Care Medicine and joins Brier Hospital’s medical staff. Jack has been well trained to care for patients, but he’s woefully unprepared to deal with Joe Polk, the medical staff, enraged nurses, and the hospital’s administration. The strength of First, Do No Harm lies in the authenticity of the medical setting and the struggles of patients and physicians. Joe Polk is a very different kind of villain.
