It is hotter than hell in New Orleans and newly promoted NOPD Commander Jack Francoise is battling horrific crime in the Vieux Carre in the August heat. At Crescent City Medical Center's Psychiatric Pavilion, nursing staff are doling out Thorazine Slurpees and Geodone shots to the most criminally insane and viciously psychotic patients in the South.
Alexandra Destephano, a registered nurse and legal counsel for CCMC is concerned about inadequate staff and safety issues in the Pavilion and enlists former husband, dashing surgeon Robert Bonnet to assist her to battle Lester Whitset, the odd and often bizarre Pavilion administrator. In the meantime, staff and patients are being brutally beaten and killed at Crescent City Medical Center and Alex must set aside her feelings about the chronic under staffing at the hospital and work with Jack, Robert and others to bring the perpetrators to justice.
Judith Lucci is a registered nurse and college professor from Virginia where she holds masters and doctoral degrees from Virginia Commonwealth University and the University of Virginia. She is the author of the Alex Destephano medical thriller series.
