Malpractice! The Novel by William Louis Harvey @sexandlawnovel

Louise also seemed to have more evening and late-night meetings than previously, which left Paul available again for occasional one-night stands. He knew the bars where young women liked to congregate. They were in their late twenties or early thirties, attractive, and well dressed. They were easy to approach and usually drank white wine, although some could hold a surprising amount of the eighty- to ninety-proof stuff. Their apartments were generally small but nicely decorated. If they went to a motel, most of them were prepared with a toothbrush and fresh underwear in their purse. Most of them weren’t very imaginative sexually. The missionary position, a little foreplay, and then the old in-and-out was the norm.
Paul took care to assure that each of these women was brought to orgasm. This was not altruism or a form of chivalry but an integral part of his self-image as a great “cocksman” (a term he and his teenage friends used to describe guys who succeeded with the opposite sex). When he was unable to bring his partner to orgasm, he remained depressed until the next encounter was successful.
They usually wanted him to spend the night, but he never did. He asked for their phone numbers, never gave out his own, and never called them. (p. 143) Malpractice! the Novel
Malpractice! the Novel is an electrifying work of realistic fiction written by an anonymous insider who worked the frontlines of the clash between the medical and legal professions during the California medical malpractice insurance crisis, which began in the 1960s. William Louis Harvey, a nom de plume, takes readers on a steamy adventure involving power, sex, lies and money in this candid courtroom suspense thriller. While Malpractice! The Novel, is a work of fiction, it is rooted in the personal experiences and firsthand knowledge the author acquired during his decades of working inside the medical industry. California in the 1960s and first half of the 1970s had already seen a dramatic increase in medical malpractice lawsuits as juries awarded progressively higher sums for “pain and suffering,” a category that had no concrete limits and caused physicians’ insurance premiums for malpractice to skyrocket. Harvey chaired a committee that reviewed all malpractice claims involving a major California hospital during the crisis. Details of some of the cases he experienced are engraved in his memory, and small portions of these tidbits find their way into Malpractice! the Novel, his first novel. Roused by a recent New York Times article about the American male novelist’s fear of addressing sexuality, Harvey interleaved honest sex histories for his novel’s characters, adding a titillating sensuality to the suspenseful novel.
