Wilson, F. Paul -- The Touch

Re-release (presumably somewhat updated) of one of the background-setting books for the Repairman Jack series. This one is "current" (that is, it takes place right after Ground Zero) and concerns a doctor who is abruptly possessed of a miraculous healing touch; the price for each use is the rapid erosion of his mind. The story unfortunately fails to develop any tension whatsoever, because the setups are all gimmes: will the good-hearted doctor sacrifice himself to save the cute girl on dialysis? the cute autistic boy? the evil exploitative politician? No points for guessing right.
