I really enjoy Hailey's "slice of life" writing style and his ability to keep mutiple connected, but not always entirely interdependent, plots going simultaneously. Unfortunately, the books just aren't timely anymore. When people didn't know how airports and hospitals and hotels operated, I can see why these books were so popular. But, nowadays, we get plenty of detail on hospitals and pathology by watching ER. But still, though they've not aged as well as they could have, they're still good reads.
