Mercy is King

Front Cover
Milligan Books, Dec 1, 2000 - Fiction - 300 pages
Black doctors fight to save lives in the ghetto at King Memorial Hospital. The hospital rises from the charred ruins of post-riot, drug-infested South Central Los Angeles. Dr. Edward Mandolyn, the character that we follow through King Memorial's first turbulent year, discovers that there is much more to his mission than simply healing patients. He must mediate a clash between black militants and the LAPD, and save his job when his new white, Ivy League boss wants to replace him with a more experienced director. In addition, he must persuade the woman he loves to stand by him, even though his patients will always be his priority.
