Book Description

The Loveable Resident is a fictional story about a surgical resident's fall from grace. Mike Oates meets his destiny one dark night and becomes entangled with a love affair with his beautiful lawyer. How Mike’s life gets turned back around is described in powerfully depicted characters and plot twists in this first novel by Mary Faderan.

Sample Chapter

The emergency-call ploy seemed to work. Mike knew it would. He pulled out of Dr. Levy’s car slot and headed toward the exit. It was a pretty smooth day. Bartholomew was pretty impressed with his skills at differential diagnosis. He thought it might be nice to head to the gym after a quick bite. Yale University had a pretty decent gym. He hardly used it, but tonight, he wasn’t eager to run through the dangerous streets of New Haven at 6:30 p.m. on a cold January night.

The streetlights were on most all the streets in New Haven. Mike emerged from the gym, bearing his gym bag. He took a quick glance around and headed for his car. He drew up short when he saw the figure standing by his car. Mike’s step slowed slightly.

“Excuse me, I need to get into my car,” he said in a no-nonsense tone.

“You parked in my parking slot.”

Mike looked at him closer. So this was Dr. Levy.

“I was late. Emergency call,” Mike explained.

Levy was a thin wiry-haired man. He was wearing gym clothes. It looked like he had been running. Sweat marks stained his shirt.

“I could write you up for this, Oates. That’s your name, isn’t it?” The voice was sneering. “I looked you up! You’re one of the residents at the hospital.”

Mike thought quickly. “I won’t do it again. I can make it up to you.”

“You got some nerve. It’s residents like you that give New Haven Hospital a bad name.” Levy leaned into him. “I could get you kicked off the staff.”

“My apologies, Dr. Levy. It’s not going to happen again”—he shifted his stance—“because you’re dead now.” He swung his fist at Levy and hit him squarely between the eye. Levy tottered back, blood spurted from his nose, and he uttered a small cry. With a sudden move, a switchblade appeared in Mike’s hand. It was a quick in and out. Levy crumpled to the ground, blood and guts spurting out of his abdomen.

Mike looked about quickly. His heart was beating rapidly. Relief cooled his senses. Nobody was around. Quickly he pulled Levy’s body and dragged it to the corner behind a post.
