Publisher's Summary

Dr. Toby Harper works the night shift in an emergency room. She spends her daytime hours alone with her mother, who suffers from Alzheimer's disease. When elderly Alzheimer's patients from the same retirement home start dying mysteriously, Toby is the only one suspicious enough to investigate. As a result, she finds herself, her mother, and her own sanity at risk.


What the Critics Say

"Richly drawn hospital scenes....Chilling science...and breathless ER-style pacing....A quick, delightfully scary listen." (People)
"[A] spine-tingling medical chiller....The pieces in this adeptly crafted Rubik's cube don't click into place until the final [moment]." (Publishers Weekly )

This book was difficult for me to get interested in. The story was so predictable. I found myself jumping ahead in my mind realizing what was next. It lacked suspense in every way and the narration did not help either.

Would you try another book from Tess Gerritsen and/or Megan Gallagher?

Megan, yes. Tess Gerritsen needs to finish what she started.

What could Tess Gerritsen have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

Left out LOTS of details necessary to make the story easier to follow. This is the only book from Audible that I've had to keep backing up (30 second rewind) in order to catch just what is going on. The end is the WORST! Not only were details missing, but I was still waiting to find out if Tobi was okay - HOW did she survive? WHEN did they find her - HOW did they find her? And, did Tobi and her sister HUG and CRY together? OR, did they just go their separate ways and hardly speak or connect again, now that their mother (who was their only common bond?) had passed.

Have you listened to any of Megan Gallagher’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

No - but, I hope to.

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

Not one....

Any additional comments?

Can I have my money back?
