“He’s starting to crash!” Dr. Hooks had been working in the ER long enough to know that if he didn’t act quickly his patient would soon be dead. The blood pressure was dropping, the pulse rising, and all signs pointed to a massive internal hemorrhage. But this time the patient wasn’t a person. The patient was the Emergency Department itself, and it was hemorrhaging dollars. The hospital ‘family’ was at the bedside struggling with the decision that would determine its fate. “Shut it down and save the hospital,” was the opinion of Timothy Doyle, the new COO. But the ER was a key element of Saints’ Hospital’s mission statement, and Sister Dolores was determined to save it. She was praying for a miracle. The Drain is an irreverent and engaging story about money, medicine, miracles, and a doctor’s pursuit of happiness in spite of all that.

Praise for The Drain
"I absolutely loved this book. James Pagano is a wonderfully talented writer, weaving a fascinating tale so skillfully that you feel he’s telling the story to you alone. I couldn’t put it down, and was sad to see it end...he completely entertains the reader with credible characters, all who seem just like people we know, in situations most of us will find familiar sooner or later. This book -- Pagano’s second novel --will resonate with virtually all readers, while it entertains and informs" Beryl S.
"The characters were engaging and complex. The story took some great twists and turns. I couldn't put it down." G.
