Cooper (Coop) has three patients inexplicably bleed to death on the operating table, the vultures begin to circle. First, he is accused of operating while under the influence of alcohol and his surgical privileges are stripped. Next, the deceased patients' families each slap him with separate malpractice lawsuits and not too surprisingly, the State of Utah revokes his license to practice medicine. Then, just to make sure his bones are picked clean, the county attorney charges him with negligent homicide, a criminal offense punishable by up to five years in prison. Just as Coop is pretty sure things can't get any worse, his malpractice insurance carrier assigns Samantha Rose Jardine as his defense attorney. He and Samantha Rose go way back. She dumped him in college, and if he had a lick of sense he would call his insurance company and request another lawyer. Then things take a few surprising turns. WARREN J. STUCKI is a native of southern Utah. As a young boy, he viewed the detonation of several atomic tests. Now, as a practicing physician, he has witnessed the havoc these tests have wrought on the citizens of southern Utah. Following graduation from the University of Utah Medical School, Dr. Stucki specialized in urology. At Dixie Regional Medical Center he has served as Chief of Surgery, Chief of Staff and member of the Hospital Governing Board.
