Über diesen Titel

Inhaltsangabe:

My name is Dr. Michael Malone. I used to be Assistant Chief of Cardiovascular Medicine and Interventional Cardiology at Mt. Zion Hospital and an honorary police surgeon as well (I have kept the cardboard parking permit on my dashboard to ward off parking tickets). Now I practice law rather than medicine. A change of heart, a change of venue, is the way I view it, though some former medical colleagues still act, all these years later, as if a cult is holding me against my will and I'm the one who needs an intervention.

Meet Dr. Michael Malone. Doctor. Lawyer. Suspect.
        
When his estranged wife, a highly respected deputy district attorney in charge of the sex crimes unit, is found murdered in their apartment, Malone falls, inevitably, under the suspicious eye of the police. After all, he's on the verge of a nasty divorce. He may lose custody of their teenaged son. His unusual medical-legal background gives him the kind of inside knowledge--how to disguise the victim's time of death or prevent evidence from being deemed admissible in court--that can keep a guilty man out of jail. At least until the DNA tests reveal that blood at the crime scene can only be Malone's.
          
Did Malone do it? Or is he being railroaded by the D.A. and the police--a payback for the wrongful--death action he's pursuing for the family of a prisoner who died in police custody? And if the police have already made up their minds, who's going to find the real killer? And how? And how soon?
          
Harry Levy combines the best elements of taut courtroom drama with the cutting--edge forensics of a medical thriller.  Narrated by a wise--cracking but surprisingly vulnerable New Yorker, Chain of Custody gives an unforgettable fresh twist to a classic tale: a man accused of killing his wife and a race against the clock for justice.

Review:

A lively courtroom drama, made more credible by the author's background as a physician, Chain of Custody features a rich cast of variegated characters. A former cardiologist, Dr. Michael Malone, who is now a consulting lawyer for a large Manhattan law firm, finds himself the chief suspect in the murder of his ex-wife, a successful and well-connected assistant district attorney. The chief prosecutor, Donald Gramb, has political aspirations and wants to humiliate Malone for assisting an indigent prisoner abused in custody by the D.A.'s own police officers. An old friend is insisting that Malone defend him in an effort to keep his research institute open. Malone's son Jess appears to believe that his own father is guilty, and the partners in his law firm are ready to bail out on him.

The forces arrayed against the wise-talking Malone and his wily attorney, Arnie Glimcher, seem invulnerable. The resulting courtroom confrontation, the maneuvering, the surprises, and the slow revelation of deeper and deeper conspiracies is interrupted with bursts of violence, passion, and confrontation. The ending is a well-prepared surprise, and you'll enjoy all the apparently contradictory details clicking neatly into place. --Barbara Schlieper
