Coming from a medical field myself I especially enjoy reading medical thrillers which do require a bit of a medical background which is why I enjoyed reading the book. As it comes to the story itself it could have been much better.
Doug Landry and his friend Mike Carlucci work at Mercy Hospital. They both are employed as anesthesiologist when Mike suffered a terrible loss in the operating room. Doubting himself he's taking all the guilt to himself until Doug has a similar experience in the OR.
Meanwhile news are, that Pinnacle Anesthesia wants to take over the anaestehsia department through direct contracting with the hospital for a fixed fee. They are known for employing questionable, low salary, non board-certified staff. So rumors are that if Pinnacle takes over the department the staff will be diminished.
When more strange occurrences happen Mike discovers a reason what might going on and his knowledge is killing him besides one of the nurses that accidentally discovered someone slipping outside the OR while it was unused.
All on his own Doug has to pt the pieces together to unravel what had happened to his friend and himself. Fighting for himself, his reputation and the lives of patients he finally lies in front the killer, paralyzed by a poisoned coffee.
Besides this there is a lot of private stuff going on in Doug's life. Not at all important to the plots story seeming to be invented to give a thin book a few more pages.
excellent, exhilerating, you won't want to put it down!
A heart stopping medical thriller. A quick fast-paced read. Enjoyed it!
