Requiem

(1992)
A novel by

 
 
Journalist James Kincaid has a pretty jaundiced view of the medical profession. So when he finds out the truth about what's happening at Newcastle's College Hospital, he's not surprised. He's stunned. Disbelieving. Appalled . . .

The hospital is the showpiece of the National Health Service. The brilliant, computerized Northern Health Scheme has dramatically lowered costs and improved services in the area. It's seen as a personal triumph for the new health secretary. A passport perhaps to Downing Street.

So why is the new system shrouded in secrecy? What really happened to Greta Marsh after her much-publicised operation? And why on earth is a top research scientist programming the hospital's computers? Kincaid knows the answers will get him the scoop - and the scandal of the century. If he can find them. If he can live to tell the tale . . .

This title was first published by Simon & Schuster Ltd. (UK) in 1992.
