Charleston Ob-Gyn Declan Murphy is spiraling down a dark path of apathy and anger following the tragic death of his wife Helene. Declan’s clinical performance has been questioned and a rootless and ruthless couple have accused him of malpractice in the death of their newborn. Certain of his innocence, Declan undertakes a quest to discover the truth behind these two drifters and to defend his fading reputation.

“The further adventures of Dr. Declan Murphy, the world's only gynecologist superhero set a loose in another medical thriller. Roger Newman serve up a super-rich gumbo of voodoo intrigue and incest from Charleston to Lake Charles. I couldn't put it down."—Roger Pinckney, Author of Reefer Moon, Blow the Man Down, The Mullet Manifesto and others.

“In his latest medical thriller, Two Drifters, Roger Newman masterfully weaves a tale that takes the reader from a Low country hospital’s infighting that can be as deadly as a cobra’s toxin, to the mountains of West Virginia, and to parts of Louisiana where a cobra would fear to slither. Faced with a crisis that could destroy his medical career, Dr. Declan Murphy must find answers to save not only his career but also his life. Prescription: Get plenty of rest before you start reading Two Drifters. You won’t be able to sleep until you finish this riveting novel.”—Bill Noel, Author of Boneyard Beach, First Light and 8 other books in the Folly Beach Mystery series.

"In his sequel to Occam's Razor, Roger Newman once again entertains and educates with a medical mystery of a quite different yet most satisfying kind. Who would have thought an Obstetrician-Gynecologist would make such an effective hero for a novel. With much of the book set in the delicious and alluring city of Charleston, Two Drifters is a most worthy read."—John A. Vance, author of Echoes of November, Awake the Southern Wind (forthcoming), Death by Mournful Numbers, and Convergences.

"The revelation of multiple plots against him, his feelings of abandonment and isolation, his budding romance and string of other heroes who join him on his march to the OK Corral keep the reader tuned and anxious."—Jim Miller, author of Kentucky Weed, Vienna, and Stealing Ho Chi Minh's Gold.

“The path ahead is clear as mud in this gripping medical thriller, but Dr. Declan Murphy must find answers that could save his career. As the author skillfully peels back the layers, we find only darkness, and danger, but Murphy pushes through the barricades. It almost costs him his life. Newman nailed this one, a page-turner throughout, crafted by a natural storyteller.”—Steve Brigman, author of The Orphan Train and Into Those Woods (forthcoming).
