Publisher's Summary

Someone is stalking the UCLA Medical Center - a depraved madman who is preying upon the staff, particularly those who are young and female. No stranger to the terrible ravages of senseless violence, E.R. Chief Dr. David Spier must keep the emergency room running smoothly and efficiently, even as his terrified co-workers wonder who will be the next victim. But when the monster himself is dragged into the E.R. in handcuffs - hideously burned, suffering, and begging for mercy - the nightmare is far from over...it has only just begun. A single act of humanity is about to unleash a bloody wave of horror that threatens to engulf everyone and everything Dr. Spier cares about. His most sacred oath as a healer has become a death sentence - for David Spier...and for a city under siege.

Too Much Story

I tried to like this story but the author took so much time with details that I didn't feel suspense, I just felt angry and was hoping whatever was going on would be over soon. I've read other books by this author and enjoyed them, this one, I'm sorry to say was downright painful to finish. Also, while chasing the bad guy everyone responsible was acting ridiculous, the story could have been so much better. 😒 Feel like it was a wasted credit - but I was so far in I felt like I needed to finish - so glad it's over.

Okay plot; great narration!

I was disappointed to learn this novel was published during the year 2002 and the audio version was released 16 years later. The plot is not up to Hurwitz's current standards. Scott Brick's narration is outstanding.

I look forward to the release of Book 4 of Hurwitz's Orphan X/Evan Smoak series on January 29, 2019.

S M H 🙄

First the positive. The narrator did a great job! The story was disappointing. Some of the characters were very likable. But the way it was written it was missing something. There a were times, several that had me on the edge of my seat, but then fizzled out. I had to force myself to stick it out hoping it would get better.

NARRATOR ELEVATES STORY

The story "Do No Harm" tends to wander a bit during the first half but overall keeps the audiobook listener interested throughout. Scott Brick's narration was excellent, as usual.

Bailed out

I made it through about 10 hours of this book but got tired of cops and docs yelling at each other. When I gave up the plot was just beginning to be interesting but I had my fill of the characters.

Absurd protaganist

Story may have been a typical police story. Buy the main character, an ER physician made one poor and illogical choice after another. I became more annoyed with him than interested.

The narrator lacked the emotion to keep it interesting. I have read several books by this author and found all better that this one.

Can a good doctor be this stupid?

No person let alone a very smart doctor be this stupid. Also even the LA police cannot be this bad. This book would be 1/4th the size if the people described were not idiots. Not very good, a waste of time since I listened until the end. Stupid me!

Disappointing...terrible...ridiculous

I am a big Gregg Hurwitz fan but this is a terrible story. Great narrator but it is difficult for him because of the ridiculous plot. He tries to make the 'medical' aspects as accurate as possible and then he throws such a ridiculous plot. Completely disappointing.

Interesting plot

This is on the dark side. The story line played out well. You thought it was over when it was just beginning. I was interested enough to share the plot with others while on vacation, but most of them were not interested and felt it wasn’t something they would choose. However I am really glad to read one of his early works.

Scott Brick can get a bit drawn out with his current readings but this early book is read perfectly.
