Short excerpt from The Case of the Desperate Doctor:
“I think I might have killed her.”
It takes a lot to stop a forkful of food from reaching my mouth. Around me, the noise of the hospital cafeteria faded and, with a bite of chicken poised in midair, I focused on the rangy, dark-haired man seated across the table.
Like me, Dr. Jeremiah Schwartz was an obstetrician-gynecologist. Unlike me, he was a card-carrying weirdo and, for me personally, a decades-long annoyance who imitated me at every step. Among recent developments, he’d bought a car identical to mine, leased an office near mine in the medical building next to the hospital, and taken it upon himself to join me for lunch whenever possible. His unpredictable comments ranged from intriguing to, as had just occurred, bizarre.
There was little doubt who “she” referred to. Onafternoon, the staff was abuzz with word that Dr. Alison Abrams had been found dead in her bathtub the previous day, and with speculation as to whether her death had been an accident or suicide. The police were, as usual, keeping a lid on the investigation.
An ob-gyn with admitting privileges here at Safe Harbor Medical Center, Alison had maintained a private office in nearby Newport Beach. Until about a year and a half earlier, Jeremiah had worked with her and another doctor. Other than that, I wasn’t aware of any connection between them.
As I mulled his statement, my fork resumed its journey to my mouth. The absence of others at our table was fortunate. They might have overreacted, or else considered this a bad joke. Jeremiah never joked.
