by Alfredo Chandler

Book Image Not Available Book Image Not Available
Assistant Attorney General Ashley Danforth knows something is wrong when Bledsoe Clinic's Medical Director is murdered just days before the merger with University Hospital Systems. What she doesn't know is the extent of research, Medicare and Medicaid fraud that is rampant in the state's health care system. Ashley investigates the seedy underbelly of America's health care system, exposing fraud, waste and abuse while she tries to find a murderer in Alfredo Chandler's breakout health care reform thriller, Caduceus Merger.
Nathan Minnow III wants to be the next governor of the great state of Washington. In his current position as Attorney General, he stands on a bully pulpit. Health care reform is the hot button issue and managed care organizations are ready to assist those who will help their cause. Minnow, the irresponsible son of a famous Washington state politico, is hot for the game, and Caduceus Health Care Systems, Inc., the nation’s fastest growing health care network, stands ready to back his play in return for his allegiance. But when did the healing arts become the stealing arts? This is the question faced by young Ashley Danforth, a disillusioned lawyer on Minnow's staff. Her caseload leads straight into the fray of health care ethics, fraud, waste, abuse -- and murder. Danforth’s discoveries put her squarely at odds with her boss’s dreams of political triumph and in the crosshairs of an industry with an insatiable appetite for money. Alfredo Chandler's breakout novel deftly handles these and other complex themes in the groundbreaking health care reform thriller, Caduceus Merger. The book's issues couldn't be more timely--or the stakes more deadly.
