What if a well respected doctor inexplicably goes on a murderous rampage? When Dr. John Meacham goes on a shooting spree the office, his business partner, staff, and two patients are killed in the bloodbath. Then Meacham turns the gun on himself. The blame falls on Dr. Lou Welcome. Welcome worked with Meacham years before as a counselor after John's medical license had been revoked for drug addiction. Lou knew that John was an excellent doctor and deserved to be practicing medicine and fought hard for his license to be restored. After hearing the news of the violent outburst, Lou is in shock like everyone else, but mostly he's incredulous. And when he begins to look into it further, the terrifying evidence he finds takes him down a path to an unspeakable conspiracy that seems to lead directly to the White House and those in the highest positions of power.

Professional reviews

"Doctors, police, and the president of the U.S. all swear an oath of office; some take it more seriously than others. Robert Petkoff's narration adds drama and tension to this chilling story based on "advances" in agricultural science. Dr. John Meacham goes on a shooting spree and kills himself, leaving Dr. Lou Welcome, his friend and counselor, to figure out why--with the help of friends and family. Petkoff has a range of unique voices to draw on to portray a variety of characters and their regional origins. He is fully credible as researchers, restaurateurs, and thugs--and even the president and first lady--as Meacham's life and activities are examined with a fine-toothed comb. As Welcome identifies the terrible effects of "GMO franken corn," he discovers the White House is involved. Listeners, especially those who enjoy conspiracy thrillers, will be thoroughly engaged.
