In a quiet suburban town, drug addiction, sexual perversion, maternal will, and mob retribution set six desperate people on a collision course that leads to the kidnapping of a newborn baby and her mother's being suspected of the child's murder. Tom and Bettina Dunne have just moved out of New York City to an idyllic farmhouse in the country. Deeply in love, they await the birth of their first child. Peter Balkan, a once-promising lawyer, has a cocaine habit that's out of control. Thousands in debt to the mob, he turns to a love-starved nurse to help him with a scheme to pay them back. Wendal and Laura Hunter, struggling to deal with multiple, unexplained miscarriages, are suddenly offered a baby. Now they must decide how much they're willing to pay for it. A newborn dies. Aaron Simon, the hospital's chief psychiatrist, isn't sure whether the young mother admitted to his ward is faking insanity to cover a murder. But if she's sane, what happened to her and where is her baby? To Do No Harm is a chilling roller coaster of a ride into a dark and twisted tale of the American Dream gone wrong.
