Final Remedy (1996) 

(Second Edition; first edition published by Harper Collins Publishers)

When a black man dies of an apparent overdose, everyone on the ER staff assumes he's the latest victim of D.C.'s drug epidemic--until he's identified. Now, under ugly accusations of racism, attending physician Dr. Karen Moore has become the target of a multimillion-dollar malpractice suit that could destroy her entire future. For plaintiff's lawyer Elliot Roth, victory seems almost too easy -- until he stumbles on some strange contradictions surrounding the mysterious death.  He and Karen form an uneasy alliance as they embark on a dangerous search for the truth. What they discover is a devastating medical conspiracy whose perpetrators will stop at nothing -- even murder -- to carry out their plan....

"A stimulating mix of medical pick-me-ups, legal heart activators, and piquant romance -- with a dose of refreshingly honest politics....the perfect prescription."
