Warm and Dead
by Mike Krentz

He works in the heart of a hectic ER, but his greatest fear is losing his family. Can an intrepid doctor protect his own from a twisted mind?

After his near-death experience in DEAD ALREADY, Dr. Zack Winston's self-confidence wobbles on shaky ground. Slated to see his young-adult daughters over Christmas for the first time in five years, the skilled emergency physician worries his relationship issues will prevent them from bonding. His determination to focus on his personal life sinks fast when he questions a pediatrician colleague's alleged suicide attempt by drowning.

Seeking the truth behind a spate of obstetrical deaths, Zack teams with the Bridget Larsen, the lawyer whose life he saved in DEAD ALREADY. As they tread a suspicious trail from the hospital morgue to the icy Potomac River that almost took the pediatrician's life, he fears any misstep will plunge them into a lethal wintry doom...

Will his refusal to accept the official story cost Zack everything he holds dear?

Warm and Dead is the scalpel-sharp second book in the Dr. Zack Winston series of medical conspiracy thrillers. If you like flawed protagonists, puzzling conspiracies, and tense family drama, then you'll love former emergency physician Mike Krentz's pulse-pounding conflict.
