Jack Hunt, Irish academic cardiologist, has a CV as long as your arm and a compelling sense of vocation. Temperamentally hostile to the least suggestion of compromise, he is “totally unused to the commercial realities of clinical medicine.” With his long suffering wife Beth and his eight year old son Danny, he has travelled the world—Sydney, London, Philadelphia, New York—in search of the right job. Until now, his career has been waiting to happen.
