Publisher's Summary

Working in the ER of a small South Carolina hospital, Dr. Rhea Lynch has seen it all - most of it at 2:00 a.m. But when an interracial couple is rushed in, beaten and bloodied by a mysterious hate group, the patients show signs of a fast-acting pulmonary infection Rhea has never seen before. Within hours, it proves fatal.
Soon, more victims are rushed in, and an epidemic has Dawkins County in an icy grip of terror. As the puzzling illness claims more lives by the hour, Rhea begins to draw some startling conclusions about the nature of the illness...and about its connections to the military.
How could something like this have happened in this peaceful community? Can it be stopped? Every second counts as Rhea desperately tries to fit the pieces together - and soon realizes that she is dealing with something bigger and more terrifying than she could ever imagine.

Narrator

What would have made Prescribed Danger better?

This is the second of two books I have ever returned to Audible! I can't tell anything about the story because the narration was so awful and irritating I quit listening. I returned this one as well as the other one by Gwen Hunter, Delayed Diagnosis, because the narration was so distracting.

Gripping

Dr. Rhea Lynch has people dying in her emergency room of what looks like a pulmonary infection. They die quickly from whatever is attacking their internal organs.

In Dr. Lynch’s attempt to learn more about the infection/epidemic, she is caught up in the midst of a hate group, religious fanatics and a terrorist germ warfare attack.

The book is well written and is fast paced and suspenseful. I could hardly put the book down until it was finished. The story has lots of action and the plot is filled with twists and turns. The characters are most interesting and unusual. I am looking forward to reading another book in the series. Carol Hendrickson does a great job narrating the book.

Enjoyable

What made the experience of listening to Prescribed Danger the most enjoyable?

I like the characters it is an entertaining story and you always want to know what will happen next
I like the detail and the way the other characters and dogs interract

What other book might you compare Prescribed Danger to, and why?

Hard to really think of many - I havent read many Medical dramas. The obvious comparison is Delayed Diagnosis - the first of this series

What didn’t you like about Carol Hendrickson’s performance?

I am not keen on the style its all a bit too urgent, though others may feel that its appropriate given the storyline. Her attempt at an english accent for the british character was cringeworthy. I usually like the narrators for Audio books but just dont really get on with Carol Hendrickson for some reason. Wont stop me listening to the others in the series though

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes it was hard to put down once I got going and into the story

Any additional comments?

well worth a read or listen, I will be listening to the next book in the series soon

Intriguing medical mystery

Where does Prescribed Danger rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

This is one of those audiobooks that I couldn't put down, as was the case with the previous Gwen Hunter book I happened to come across, Premature Diagnosis. In Prescribeded Danger the narrator injects a lot of atmosphere into her reading of the story, with tension but also humour throughout.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Rhea Lynch, the experienced and excellent ER doctor who is the main character in this series of books, is plucky and intuitive and displays clever dectection skills to get to the root of this mysterious and scary epidemic.which is threatening to overtake the small South Carolina town.

Which character – as performed by Carol Hendrickson – was your favourite?

All the characters have their own distinctive accents and give an authentic flavour and colour to the story as it unfolds.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

This audiobook gripped me from beginning to end and I do thoroughly recommend it.

Any additional comments?

My compliments to both the author and the narrator.
