Title: Doing Harm
Author: Kelly Parsons
Synopsis (from bn.com):
There are many ways to die in a hospital…being sick is only one of them.
Chief resident Steve Mitchell is the quintessential surgeon: ambitious, intelligent, confident. Charged with molding a group of medical trainees into doctors, and in line for a coveted job, Steve’s future is bright. But then a patient mysteriously dies, and it quickly becomes clear that a killer is on the loose in his hospital. A killer set on playing a deadly game with Steve. A killer holding information that could ruin his career and marriage. Now, alone and under a cloud of suspicion, Steve must discover a way to outsmart his opponent and save the killer’s next victim before the cycle repeats itself again and again…
A chilling and compelling thriller that also takes you into the hospital and details the politics and hierarchy among doctors, as well as the life and death decisions that are made by flawed human beings, Kelly Parsons’ Doing Harm marks the gripping debut of a major fiction career.
My thoughts: If you like medical dramas, drop what you are doing and head out and buy this book right NOW! This book was an absolutely excellent medical drama filled with twists, turns, unbelievable plot surprises and drama, drama, drama!
As one who has spent her entire career in healthcare, I personally found some of the medical explanations rather simplistic and unnecessary to the storyline, but of course not everyone knows the terminology!
I LOVED, LOVED, LOVED this book. I started it on a plane and literally didn’t want to get off the plane so I could keep on reading! For me, this one is one not to put down!
Overall, a great medical drama, fast-paced, plot twists, great characters! I sincerely hope this author continues with his writing and gets us out another book soon!
