This is a gripping story of how the secret life of a world-renowned Physician is exposed after he dies.
Jonathan Levy is found dead. Was it sudden death? Was it suicide? Was it murder?
To find out how and why arguably the most influential person in the field of medicine, the world over (whose work was a beacon of hope for many of the world’s sick) had died, investigators probe into his life and relationships. They single out one of his closest allies, James Colburn as the main suspect.
On a hunch and in his bid to prove his innocence, as well as find out how and why the only person who could have restored health back to his ailing wife had died, James goes after his own suspect. In his fishing expedition, he begins to unravel a never before seen side to Jonathan...
After the official investigation is aborted, as Jonathan’s autopsy report concludes that he died of natural causes, Jonathan’s son, Timothy, smells a rat and while he demands a second autopsy, he employs Jason Wolfe, a no-nonsense detective to investigate Jonathan’s death. What did he find out?
When the second autopsy suggests that it was murder, James resumes his own investigation and in the process discovers yet another suspect as well as unearthing even darker secrets about Jonathan. As his wife’s health begins to deteriorate James stops pursuing his new discoveries, diverting his attention and meager resources to the battle against losing her.
Fighting against graft, Wolfe stumbles on the possible killer’s identity. This leads to a failed attempt on his life; leading him to conclude that several people had a hand in Jonathan’s death.
Soon, Jonathan’s assumed killer is reported dead and Wolfe is convinced that whoever killed them is part of the group that had made an attempt on his life, and are likely accomplices in Jonathan’s death. Wolfe changes tack.
Operating with a new course of action, Wolfe stumbles on a likely motive, which potentially also threatens his life, and that of his wife. In his grievance, Wolfe abandons the investigation, surmising that the question on Jonathan’s death should have been: why was he not dead a long time ago?
Will the accomplices beat the rap as a result of Wolfe giving up? Why did he give up? Will Jonathan’s reason for dying remain a secret? Will the people who would potentially suffer from his seemingly heinous and deathly acts still remain in the dark? Is it better for the world that he is dead?
