Band of Illusion
By David Shobin
Although Peter Trevelyan’s medical practice is doing well, his twenty-five-year marriage is crumbling. Against all personal and ethical beliefs, he succumbs to the charms of one of his infertility patients. Stunning thirty-year-old Laura seduces him into performing an insemination—in the flesh. Thus commences Peter’s downward professional spiral, in which he finds himself the victim of a nationwide malpractice scam. Through grit and determination, Peter manages to turn the tables and resurrect his shattered personal life.
Based on a true story, Band of Illusion weaves a tale that chronicles the personal dilemmas of physicians and seductive patients, and how best to deal, or not to deal, with them.
