Brief Descriptions

After his wife’s friend commits suicide, an ex-FBI agent realizes that several people she knew have died in the past year and discovers a disturbing pattern, in the third novel of the series following Under Pressure. 40,000 first printing. - (Baker & Taylor)

"In Robert Pobi's thriller Do No Harm, a series of suicides and accidental deaths in the medical community are actually well-disguised murders and only Lucas Page can see the pattern and discern the truth that no one else believes. Lucas Page is a polymath, astrophysicist, professor, husband, father of five adopted children, bestselling author, and ex-FBI agent-emphasis on "ex." Severely wounded after being caught in an explosion, Page left the FBI behind and put his focus on the rebuilding the rest of his life. But Page is uniquely gifted in being able to recognize patterns that elude others, a skill that brings the F.B.I. knocking at his door again and again. Lucas Page's wife Erin loses a friend, a gifted plastic surgeon, to suicide and Lucas begins to realize how many people Erin knew that have died in the past year, in freak accidents and now suicide. Intrigued despite himself, Page begins digging through obituaries and realizes that there's a pattern-a bad one. These deaths don't make sense unless the doctors are being murdered, the target of a particularly clever killer. This time, the FBI wants as little to do with Lucas as he does with them so he's left with only one option-ignore it and go back to his normal life. But then, the pattern reveals that the next victim is likely to be...Erin herself"-- - (Baker & Taylor)

Publishers Weekly Reviews

Pobi's strong third Lucas Page novel (after 2020's Under Pressure) combines an unusual lead with nail-biting suspense. Genius astrophysicist Page, who left the FBI after suffering horrific injuries, has since devoted himself to his wife, Erin, a pediatric surgeon, and their five adopted children. But his hopes of leaving his crime-solving days behind are again dashed when his attendance at a foundation's annual charity dinner to raise money for some of New York City's poorest hospitals leads to a shocking realization. During the dinner, a memorial slideshow presents images of doctors involved in the charity who died in the previous year. Page believes the number of such deaths—30—in such a small subgroup of the city's population signifies foul play and begins digging. Despite official findings of accidents, natural causes, or suicides, Page is convinced the doctors were murdered, and Erin urges him to investigate when a close friend of hers, who was at the dinner, apparently hangs himself. Page gets his former FBI boss to okay an official inquiry and delves into what links the dead doctors. The artful plot twists keep readers guessing throughout. John Verdon fans will be thrilled. Agent: Jill Marr, Sandra Dijkstra Literary. (Aug.)
