THE LUCIFER CONNECTION

The Lucifer Connection" is a taut, roller-coaster ride of a thriller, set in sixties, swinging San Francisco during the Summer of Love. Written by prolific David Watts, MD

Jack Barnstone, a ruggedly handsome, motorcycle-riding physician and out-of-the-box thinker with a chip on his shoulder, is starting a new practice near Chinatown in downtown San Francisco.
Renowned for his diagnostic acumen and close attention to his patient's complaints, it was shocking to hear the news that Hank Jackson, a patient he had dismissed only an hour before with no real diagnosis other than exhaustion and a hangover, wound up dead.
Barnstone suddenly becomes the object of a malpractice suit. But that's not all. Based on accusations from what appears to be unfounded suspicion by an inept SF Police Department he is also becomes a suspect in the murder of his patient.
His reputation and livelihood at risk and no allies in either the legal profession or law enforcement, Barnstone decides to dive headfirst into the investigation of a twisted medical murder mystery that will have far-reaching connections into the political establishment, the elite rich, and the masterminds of international crime.The pursuit takes him through the cultural revolution of Hippie life during the 1967 Summer of Love, to the elusive and devious practices of the Satanic Church.
With help from his resourceful and beautiful girlfriend, Ellie Larson, and a colorful, smart, old classmate, Raj Gupta, a gay East Indian physician recently named assistant coroner of San Francisco,he begins his hero's journey. Outnumbered and underpowered, Jack must rely upon his medical and analytical skills, a savvy understanding of human psychology, and sheer instinct to save his life and his career.

This is the first in an exiting trilogy, featuring a brilliant new hero and protagonist in the tradition of medical investigators and crime thrillers from such authors as Robin Cook, Patricia Cromwell and Richard Mabry. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GH36KunkM-c
