Many of the real-life medical mysteries on the television show House (premiered 2004 on the Fox network) were inspired by Roueché's writings, especially THE MEDICAL DETECTIVES (1980). Roueché also published several suspense and mystery novels, including BLACK WEATHER (1945). Cover rubbed at edges, a very good or better copy. (#159865).
