This is an older true crime (published 1981)that was well worth reading. A narcissist surgeon leads a double life. He has a mistress, a long suffering wife, countless botched surgeries but no end of loyal clients. And murder is part of the equation too. Very interesting true crime about a man who thought he was above the law.
