Review of Diagnosis Death!
Dr. Elena Gardner's life is quickly going from bad to worse. Her husband is now dead because, quite literally, the plug was pulled on his life. Elena doesn't remember disconnecting her husband's life support, but now it seems everyone is suspicious about her integrity. It gets worse when an eerily similar case shows up at the hospital and the same thing happens to that patient. Add mysterious phone calls, suspicion from the people who hold her job and future in their hands, and threatening mail... It's enough to drive anyone away.
When her residency ends, Elena soon accepts a job in Dainger, Texas, but it seems the danger just follows her there. The harassment continues with some frightening additions... someone is spying on her! It almost gets to be too much to handle, and Elena begins to question whether or not she really did pull life support... But thankfully, her associate doctor, the doctor's lawyer husband, and her best friend and colleague David help her pull through and look to God for help.
I absolutely love and aspire to be in the medical field, so medical literature is right up my alley. However, anyone can pick up this book and be taken into the excitement of this story. The mystery is pulling all through, and the story really feels true to real life. I felt as if I was right there with Elena in the hospital experiencing everything she did. I just couldn't put this book down! Extremely well written with characters that grab your attention and sympathy with the perfect blend of suspense and quiet moments of faith. I've read the first two books, but a reader can certainly pick this book up and read without any confusion whatsoever.
All in all, I rate this book five out of five stars!
