After twelve years of practicing medicine, Dr. Alan Bulmer develops a supernatural ability to heal, but the miraculous power carries a potentially lethal price.

McMillan Palgrave
Suddenly, a family physician can heal with a simple touch.

Dr. Alan Bulmer discovers one day that he can cure any illness with the mere touch of his hand, with no rational explanation. Although he tries to hide it, word inevitably leaks out and soon Alan's life begins to unravel. Only rich, beautiful, enigmatic Sylvia Nash stands by him, and Ba, her Vietnamese gardener, who witnessed such power in his homeland, where it is called Dat-tay-vao and always comes with a price. Help arrives unexpectedly—Senator James McCready offers the use of his family's medical foundation to investigate Alan's power. If it truly exists, he will back Alan with the full weight of the Foundation's international reputation. Alan accepts McCready's offer. But he has only begun to pay.

I didn't like this one much. I'm used to the Repairman Jack excitement and the change of pace in this book was too much for me. I struggled to finish it

F. Paul Wilson if you haven't read any of his stuff yet once you start you will love it. And luckily he has been writing for years so it's lke hitting the jackpot. Try Jack the Repair Man Series. The Touch is a medical/thriller/horror/love story. Great!

From the back cover of the book: [red] [/red] [orange] [/orange] [italics] [/italics]

After a dozen years of practicing medicine as a family physician, Dr. Alan Bulmer discovers one day that he can cure any illness with the mere touch of his hand.

Although he tries to hide his power, word inevitably leaks out, and soon Alan's life begins to unravel. His marriage and his practice crumble. Only rich, beautiful, enigmatic Sylvia Nash stands by him. And standing with her is Ba, her Vietnamese gardener, who once witnessed a power such as Dr. Bulmer's in his homeland, where it is called [italics]Dat-tay-vao[/italics].

Ba knows too well that the [italics]Dat-tay-vao[/italics] always comes with a price.

And Alan has only begun to pay.

In this new edition [shown above from Amazon --summary writer's note] of F. Paul Wilson's tale of supernatural suspense is for the first time accompanied by the short story, "Dat-tay-vao," which tells the story of the events bringing the [italics]Dat-tay-vao[/italics] to the United States.
