Bodily Harm opens with a big win for Sloane and his new partner, Tom Pendergrass, in a medical malpractice case centered on the death of a child. But on the heels of this seeming victory, an unlikely character – toy designer Kyle Horgan – comes forward to tell Sloane that he’s gotten it all wrong. Horgan’s the one who’s truly responsible for the little boy’s death and others – not the pediatrician Sloane has just proven guilty.
Ordinarily, Sloane might have dismissed such a person as a crackpot, but something about this case has troubled him from the start - something he couldn’t quite pinpoint. When Sloane tries to follow up with Horgan, he finds the man’s apartment a shambles - ransacked by unknown perpetrators. Horgan has vanished - seemingly without a trace. Together with longtime investigative partner Charles Jenkins, Sloane reexamines his client’s son’s death and digs deeper into Horgan’s claims, forcing him to enter the billion-dollar, cutthroat toy world. As Sloane gets closer to the truth, he trips a wire that leads to a shocking chain of events that nearly destroys him and takes from Sloane more than he ever thought he could possibly lose.
To get to the bottom of it all and find justice for the families’ harmed, Sloane must keep in check his overwhelming desire for revenge. Full of nail-bitingly tense action scenes as well as edge-of-your-seat courtroom drama, Bodily Harm finds Robert Dugoni at the very top of his game.

Loved this book. I had read some of the book a out of order and hunted to find the one that told about what happened to Tina. The ending had me not only with tears but bawling . This was one of Robert Dugani's best ones.
