 Hippocratic Oath - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Hippocratic Oath is an oath traditionally taken by physicians pertaining to the ethical practice of medicine.
Most scholars believe that the oath was written by Hippocrates or one of his students, but recently it has been proposed that the oath was written by Pythagoreans [1].
Most schools administer some form of oath, but the great majority no longer use the ancient version, which praised pagan gods, advocated teaching of men but not women, and forbade general practitioners from surgery, abortion, euthanasia, or abuse of the prescription pad.

 Oath - The Encyclopedia
An oath (from Old Saxon eoth) is either a promise or a statement of fact calling upon something or someone that the oath maker considers sacred, usually a god, as a witness to the binding nature of the promise or the truth of the statement of fact.
This is principally based on the words of Jesus in the Sermon on the Mount: "I say to you: 'Swear not at all'" (Matthew 5:33).
The United States has permitted affirmations since it was founded; they are even mentioned in the Constitution and Franklin Pierce availed himself of the privilege to affirm rather than swear when he was inaugurated president.

 Atheists and The Oath
Oaths to God to assume public office and in judicial proceedings were inherited from England.
These provisions do, however, require Presidents to "swear (or affirm)" the specified oath and state that officers "shall be bound by oath or affirmation," the former in each instance implying appeal to the divinity.
The purpose of the oath is not to call the attention of God to the witness, but the attention of the witness to god; not to call upon Him to punish the false-swearer, but on the witness to remember that He will assuredly do so.

5) There are two highly controversial vows in the original Hippocratic Oath that physicians continue to ponder and struggle with as a profession: the pledges never to participate in euthanasia and abortion.(1) These prohibitions applied primarily to those identified as Hippocratic physicians, a medical sect that represented only a small minority of all self-proclaimed healers.
The Hippocratics' reasons for refusing to participate in euthanasia may have been based on a philosophical or moral belief in preserving the sanctity of life or simply on their wish to avoid involvement in any act of assisted suicide, murder, or manslaughter.

The Oath is the first book I've read by John Lescroart but won't be the last.
Lescroart's strong suits are in his ability to develop multidimensional, credible major as well as secondary characters, believable multilayered story lines, and witty dialogue -- all of which are intertwined in an entertaining, fast-moving mystery.
Without going into detail (and perhaps spoiling things for potential readers), what keeps me from giving The Oath a higher rating is that I found its ending to be a bit predictable in some ways and a bit far-fetched in others.
