Summary:

In the tightly knit world of Boston medicine, the Randall family reigns supreme. When heart surgeon J. D. Randall's teenage daughter dies during a botched abortion, the medical community threatens to explode. Was it malpractice? A violation of the Hippocratic Oath? Or was Karen Randall murdered in cold blood?

The natural suspect is Arthur Lee, a brilliant surgeon and known abortionist, who has been carrying out the illegal procedure with the help of pathologist John Berry. After Karen dies, Lee is thrown in jail on a murder charge, and only Berry can prove his friend wasn't the one who wielded the scalpel. Behind this gruesome death, Berry will uncover a secret that would shock even the most hardened pathologist.

A Case of Need was adapted to the screen as The Carey Treatment, directed by Blake Edwards and starring James Coburn.

    How could I give Michael Crichton four stars? How could I, a nobody, give the great, fantastic, man-who-mesmerizes-the-entire-world four stars? He was a nobody at the time he wrote this book as well. It is a good story and well deserves the four stars it gets -- "4-Stars The book accomplished all of its storytelling goals." Re: Current abortion laws: 1) Procedures are still being performed by doctors by those who can afford to pay and by nonprofessionals for those who can't; 2) Professionals are imprisoned and practices ruined but this will not stop abortions. It was a fleshed out morality tail. It was good and a foreshadowing of things to come.
