FIRST, DO NO HARM (Mystery-New Jersey-1943/Cont) - Ex
Larry Karp – Standalone
Poisoned Pen Press, 2004 – Hardcover
When Martin Firestone tells his father, Leo, he’s going to be a doctor, he is stunned by the negative reaction he receives. But when Leo insists on meeting Martin and proceeds to tell him of Martin’s grandfather, who was a doctor, Martin knows there are still answers to be uncovered.
This is not a classic mystery, but it is an absolutely remarkable piece of writing. I became completely immersed in the characters and their story. It is poignant, engrossing, tragic and truly excellent. Be prepared to give it your undivided attention as you’ll want to do nothing less.
