A QUESTION OF NEGLIGENCE
In a large London teaching hospital, Murdo Cameron, one of the world’s most inventive surgeons is pitted against the equally eminent physician, Sir Kenneth Fairchild over a case of alleged medical negligence.
Cameron is accused of botching an operation and causing a patient’s death; and the hospital is charged with covering up the death. Into this feud steps Cameron’s friend, Gregor Maclean, a brilliant psychiatrist. He finds his friend diminished mentally and physically, given to perverse behaviour. But gradually he resolves the enigma of Cameron’s actions then unmasks those who created the scandal and conspired to ruin his career.
