I can't say that I've read a lot of medical thrillers - maybe none besides this one, in fact - so I can't compare Benedict's writing to Robin Cook or other famous authors writing stuff like this. I did enjoy the book overall, but found it pretty heavy on character development in the front half and light on action until about two-thirds of the way through.

The fact that it was a fairly short book drove me through as well as curiosity as to whether a few of my conclusions were going to end up being correct. For the most part, they were...although I wouldn't say it was predictable. It's a thriller and not really a mystery - the reader knows who the 'bad' guys are before the other characters, even if you don't quite know the extent of their involvement in what's happening.

I picked this up because Benedict is a local author to my area and somebody recommended his second book. I figured I'd start with the first one. I'm undecided at this point as to whether I'll pick up the sequel, but I might. Overall, mediocre, but not bad once you get through the first half. ( )

Book description
Murder is the ultimate rush

When patients start dying unexpectedly in the O.R. at Mercy Hospital, anesthesiologist Doug Landry finds himself the focus of the blame. Is he really incompetent or is there something more sinister going on? As Doug struggles to clear his name and unravel the secret of the mysterious deaths, it becomes clear that someone will stop at nothing to keep him from exposing the devastating truth. Doug becomes trapped in a grisly race against time to prevent more deaths—including his own.
