Publisher's Summary

The ultrawealthy families of Chouteau Forest may look down on a woman like death investigator Angela Richman, but they also rely on her. When a horrific car crash kills a Forest teenager, Angela is among the first on the scene. Her investigation is hardly underway, however, when she suffers a series of crippling strokes. Misdiagnosed by the resident neurologist, Dr. Gravois, and mended by gauche yet brilliant neurosurgeon Dr. Jeb Travis Tritt, Angela faces a harrowing recovery.
It's a drug-addled, hallucinating Angela who learns that Dr. Gravois has been murdered...and the chief suspect is the surgeon who saved her life. Angela doesn't believe it, but can she trust her instincts? Her brain trauma brings doubts that she'll ever recover her investigative skills. But she's determined to save Dr. Tritt from a death-row sentence - even if her progress is thwarted at every turn by a powerful and insular community poised to protect its own.

Death investigator confused by stroke-interesting

What about Tanya Eby’s performance did you like?

I thoroughly enjoy Tanya Eby's performances and she did an excellent job with this book as expected.

Any additional comments?

This was certainly an interesting book, a slightly different storyline gives this book the edge it needs to make it less predictable and more enjoyable. The protagonist Angela Richmon is the death scene investigator for a well to do community. When two of the county sweethearts get into a horrible accident she is sidetracked with a stroke, misdiagnosed and then another. When the first doctor has a heart attack Angela proves it was actually a murder. In her state of confusion she then sets out to find the real murderer and motive, exonerate the innocent and save herself as well.
This was not the most suspenseful book I've ever listened to but is definitely worth a listen.
