Doctor's Daughters Author:Frank G. Slaughter INSIDE FRONT COVER: Each time the "Great God Malone" stepped into the operating room, the world anticipated another miraculous breakthrough in surgery. Only two things remained to crown his enormous success: the arrival at the prestigious Malone Heart Institute of a test candidate for his revolutionary artificial heart, and the birth of a legiti... more »mate son to bear his name. Theo Malone won't yield his power to anyone, especially to his three beautiful daughters, all successful doctors in their own right. But they've got enough drive to make it on their own.
Lynn, actually a greater surgeon than her father, is torn between the man she loves and the father she hates, and her twin, Lisa, has proven herself the equal of her ego-tistical parent in both the fields of medicine and romance. Young Laurel, meanwhile, antagonizes Malone by helping to prevent the spread of epidemic, inadvertently uncovering a scandal that could ruin his reputation forever.
A skillful probe into the highly dramatic inner workings of large city hospitals, DOCTOR'S DAUGHTERS once again shows Frank G. Slaughter to be the peerless master of the medical novel.
BACK COVER: "Biscayne General certainly made the headlines last night." Lisa didn't ask why. With her head throbbing and stomach in spasm, this was no time to encourage a talkative taxi driver.
Unfortunately that didn't stop him. "A robber stabbed a fellow in the heart and the Rescue Squad that brought him to the hospital had given him up for dead. But a smart young doctor in what they're now calling the Critical Care Center got his heart beating so one of htheheart surgeons could operate."
"Was the surgeon Dr. Malone?"
"Not the one everybody knows about. This was a woman. I think her name was Rogers. Can you imagine a woman operating on a heart? The paper says she used a microscope to sew a big artery back together and save the patient's life."
Good for Lynn, Lisa thought. At last she'd had a chance to prove what everybody in the hospital already knew - except her father, who refused to let her operate alone - namely, that she was as skilled a cardiovascular surgeon as he was. Not that Theo Malone would ever admit it.
