Fatal Reaction

Adult; Mystery/Thriller; (Market)

During a slow night on duty, paramedic Ana Ashmore drives past a crime scene at the shabby Aquarian motel--a scene that, strangely, wasn't broadcast on her first-responder's radio. Curious, she stops to help and quickly realizes why she'd been excluded from the call. Her sister, Sydney, has been found dead of an apparent suicide. But why would Sydney take her own life right after her successful battle with cancer?

As the police get to work, Ana decides to launch an investigation of her own. Sydney's soon-to-be ex-husband certainly had a motive to murder her, and while the police focus on him, Ana makes a startling discovery: a chain of e-mails between Sydney and her surgeon that brings into question Sydney's diagnosis and the life-altering treatment that followed. With the help of Dr. Jared Monroe, who has his own troubling connection to the surgeon in question, Ana uncovers a ring of corruption and greed. As the two dig deeper, they develop a complicated attraction. Can they survive their attempt to expose a dangerous deception and avenge Sydney's murder?

Reviews
Robin Cook fans should enjoy Frisch's solid and suspenseful medical thriller, set in Marion, N.Y. Paramedic Ana Ashmore is devastated when she learns the reason she wasn't called to respond to an emergency; the victim found dead in a sleazy hotel turns out to be her older sister, Sydney Dowling. Despite some preliminary indications that Sydney took her own life, the senior officer on the scene, Sgt. Mike Richardson, who raised the sisters after the death of their parents, deems it a homicide. The reader learns, before Ana and Mike do, that the murder may be tied to a medical breakthrough in a local hospital. Dr. Dorian Carmichael has developed a revolutionary uterine transplant procedure that could help woman unable to conceive on their own. But Dorian's first patient, Stephanie Martin, doesn't fare so well after the operation, leading to an effort to cover up her connection with Sydney. The prime villain will come as a surprise to many. This title is also available as an e-book from Thomas & Mercer. (BookLife)
