my review:

Rating: ★★★★★

~E-copy provided by author in exchange for an honest review~

Hannah Fâtier is a anesthesiologist with a brand new job at Deaconess Hospital in San Francisco. Her life seems ordinary until a patient under her care dies before the routine operation had properly begun. Hannah is blamed due to a basic medical error, yet Hannah knows she isn’t to blame. Research into the paitent Hannah discovers many inconsistencies. And learns that someone has framed her for a fatal medical mistake she knows she didn’t make.

Okay, I really enjoyed this book. I feel like thriller novels are now something I should look into more. Hannah is such a great character, I loved her so much and felt so bad for her as she was put through all this terrible suffering. She lives an intriguing life which in turn increased a worthwhile tale. The novel only focuses on what’s important and Stookey creates a female lead that was great to root for. And the supporting cast – while they didn’t feel as fully fleshed out but they were still likeable and believable. This is such a short review, but this book was so great! I could definitely see this as a tv show!

Overall, a detailed, thrilling novel that keeps you gripped until the very end!
