About the Book

Close to Death was inspired by the many Medical mishaps, corruption and unbridled power witnessed within the Medical community. Ultimately, the spin put forth during the OJ Simpson trial gave rise to this novel and our intrepid character Dr. Bill Presser, a gregarious and overly flirtatious Anesthesiologist who gets mixed up in a series of sexual exploits, murders, including the attempt on his wife, while lacking a clear alibi. Will the smooth talker be able to schmooze his way out of being framed for these crimes or will the real mastermind and his motif be discovered in time to keep him from a state sponsored execution?
