The story started out intriguing and grabbed me right away, then seemed to die. I was almost a third of the way through the book before it really piqued my interest again. In between it was mostly dialog about day to day life mixed in with some family drama that didn’t really go anywhere and did not hold my interest. After this the story did build at a nice pace and was engrossing, suspenseful, and at times a page turner. The book was well written and I thoroughly enjoyed reading the behind the scene details of how operating rooms work and the role the anesthesiologist plays in surgery; written in layman terms this thread added tension and pulled you in emotionally. The author is a practicing anesthesiologist, which explains why these descriptions felt realistic. I also loved her insight on how doctors and the medical team feel when things turn out poorly in an operating room, this aspect of the storyline was poignantly written and again very real. I look forward to reading more from this author.Back.
