Lethal Rhythm is the first novel for Dr. Peter Kowey, a world renowned expert in the field of cardiology.  It is the story of a good cardiologist who is sued after a young patient dies.  He loses his lawsuit, falls into an alcoholic depression and subsequently loses both his practice and his family.   However, with the help of two remarkable women attorneys, he discovers some astonishing truths about his patient, her husband and his diabolical mistress.  Lethal Rhythm brings to light the devastating effects that lawsuits have on both the doctors and the medical profession.  The cost of defensive medicine-such as tests that are likely unnecessary but administered to protect the doctor from lawsuits down the road-is difficult to calculate, but conservative estimates start at an astonishing $50 billion a year.  Lethal Rhythm is Dr. Kowey’s catalyst to help the public understand the extreme harm the current tort system has visited upon medical care.
