Mercy) draws on his extensive medical knowledge in his sixth novel. As Dr.
Claire McCall enters the toughest residency program for surgeons in the country,
her world begins to fall apart. Although attracted to another resident
just as her feelings for her finance have turned ambivalent because she believes
he pressured her into intimacy before marriage. Claire has also lost her
closeness with God. To top things off, a patient admitted to the emergency
room exhibits the same symptoms that Claire's father has had for years.
The people in her hometown of Stoney Creek, VA, called it "The Curse" attributed
it to alcoholism. But this patient is diagnosed with Huntington's
disease. As Claire tries to determine whether her father has Huntington's
