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.

The story seemed quite slow at the beginning, i struggled to get interested in the story at first, but i am glad. I continued listening as i did enjoy the book. Looking forward to the next in the series.
I enjoyed this book very much. Could not put it down. Robert Dugoni has become my favorite author! I am off to get the next one in series. I hope there will be many more to come!
If you want a book that will touch your heart, this is it. If you want action, you've got it here. If you want something you can't put down, read this book. If you want light and "Disneyesque" in its ending, look elsewhere. Can't wait to read the next book!
"another great book"
I couldn't put it down in the beginning. I found myself so caught up in the moment. This book filled me with so many different emotions. I was mad,sad,and excited.
"Couldn't stop listening"
I thoroughly enjoyed this novel. The suspense, twists and turns, and great character development makes this one of the best books out there. The narrator is absolutely phenomenal! The emotions and voices he uses for the different characters is truly amazing and really makes listening that much more enjoyable. I loved it!
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.
Another keeping you on edge not only with interest but roller coaster of emotions! Superb!
