Dr. Charlie Davids thinks he's said goodbye to Sal and his days as the ER doc on call for the Mob. Now married, Charlie and his wife Patty are looking forward to a quiet life in the rural Berkshire Hills of Western Massachusetts. But Charlie can't seem to put the past behind him and he soon finds himself in another round of trouble. Faced with hostile visits from menacing strangers and repeated attempts on his life. Charlie again struggles with personal and medical ethics while trying to protect those he loves. This time however, the circumstances have changed, and Charlie doesn't have to face the danger alone. Bolstered by a network of loyal friends, Charlie takes on both the Mob and the FBI in an attempt to free himself from the underworld once and for all. The Day After Midnight, Richard Greene's second installment in the Dr. Charlie Davids series, is a crime novel that is original and heartening as it explores issues of individual accountability, social responsibility, and living life to its fullest.
Everything is about to change for Dr. Charlie Davids, an emergency room physician. Returning home one evening, he finds a balding overweight mobster named Sal waiting in his living room. In semi-retirement, Sal handles the employee health department for the local organized crime family. Sal tells Charlie that he has been chosen to be their new company doc. Now Charlie's time is not his own and his life is in danger.
"This novel combines tight action with fine emotion as you work your way through to the question of how good might conquer evil . . . Greene has come up with a rip-roaring finale that caught this reader by surprise." Reviewer from the Berkshire Eagle
