Review from OnlineBookClub.org
The author did an outstanding job of creating the characters and their personalities. The storyline was realistic and gave an accurate view of pressures in the medical profession. As a retired nurse, I can relate to the day-to-day stress of working in the medical field; and how adding personal drama to an already stressful job can create explosive situations. I was impressed with Cole’s writing style. The narrative was easy to read, and the storyline was compelling and relatable with a surprise ending.
Overall I enjoyed reading this book. What I liked most was how Coles identified the moral and ethical issues we face today in the medical field. The focus seems to be more on money than on the safety and well-being of the patient, as illustrated by Clayton performing unnecessary surgeries. Other societal issues touched on in the book were domestic violence and drug abuse. I didn’t find anything I disliked about the book.
