Deception : the rise and final fall [of a decorated Vietnam surgeon]

Judy, Brad, author.

"Deception is an American story of suffering, temporary redemption, and betrayal. It describes the meteroric rise and equally devastating fall of Dr. Ken Judy, who struggled to overcome a horrific event in his childhood. He became a decorated Vietnam veteran, a highly successful cardio-vascular surgeon, and a pillar in his community. But, Dr. Judy kept secrets that haunted him and he chased the nightmares away with an insatiable appetite for women--an addiction that ultimately destroyed everything he loved. This biography shows how the deceiver may have become the deceived, as his estate, his gold, and perhaps even his own fate, were compromised by one who claimed to love him. Deception sets the record straight and reveals the collateral damage done to a family when one man is inflicted with so many inner demons. And it leaves open the mystery of what really happened that fateful day in a wheat field outside Pullman, Washington.
