NO FAULT MURDER

Death is a daily, sometimes hourly, occurrence at St. Vincent’s Hospital in Buffalo, New York. Now, in his pressure cooker career, Dr. Earl Garnet has broken the cardinal rule of modern medicine: he publicly blames a powerful HMO for practicing “no-fault murder” in the death of an eighteen-month-old baby. The HMO swiftly strikes back, igniting a debilitating boycott of the hospital. But after several accidents nearly cost patients their lives, the true bloodletting begins. A doctor is found sprawled out in the parking lot, his throat cut ear to ear. Blamed for instigating the chaos, Earl Garnet knows that he faces more than a deadly power play. The doctor may have uncovered a conspiracy reaching from the halls of one of the nation’s most influential HMOs to a small, experimental clinic in Mexico, where yet another of his patients went for treatment and disappeared. To find answers, Garnet must wade deep into the murky, surreal workings of today’s healthcare industry.

Our Ghana has gone mad again

MY COUNTRY GHANA IS SUFFERING FROM MENTAL INSTABILITY

akudethinks

The chaos never stops, it only takes a break for a few hours. Our country is becoming a circus with so many laughable characters and events. Anybody who suffers depression or hypertension is either seeking attention from family and friends or is not paying proper attention to the tales of my motherland. A peek at a newspaper, an ear to a radio station or a look at the TV will relieve you of any stress due to work or because of the kids and bills, unless you take everything too seriously.

If you think I’m joking, just cast your mind back to the events leading to the 2012 General Elections; the one won by Atta the mortuary man. The list of people who contested or intended to contest will make you laugh without you watching Chorkor trotro or even listening to Bukom Banku interviewing Langabel. Presidential candidates the world over…
