This is my first book by C. J. Lyons. The story is a medical thriller and it is apparently the first book in a series.
Lydia Fiores M.D. is a new ER attending physician at Pittsburg Angel of Mercy Medical Center a teaching facility. On her first day of work on a new job Fiore makes a miraculous life saving move on one case but on another case considered a routine mid-level emergency auto-accident patient she loses the patient. The problem is the patient is the son of the chief of surgery in the hospital. The autopsy suggests the man was murdered so Fiores begins her own investigation as another case occurs. The story is full of various characters as the teaching facility provides lots of interns, students, nurses etc. Lyons has a continuous pace of action in the emergency room going on as Fiores conducts her investigation. We have gangs, race violence, nut cases and at the end of the book riots. With so much action and suspense it will keep the reader reading to the end of the book.
The book is well written and very fast paced. There is lots of medical action but also intrigue, romance and other tangled relationships. The medical information and ER situations ring true as the author is a pediatric ER physician. I will probably read the next episode in the series as the book was hard to put down and made a great get away from it all book. Lauren Ross does a good job narrating the story. I did have a problem with the sound quality, it sounded as if the narrator was in a barrel or a large room.
