I really liked the premise of this book The execution needed a better editor in my opinion I felt it dragged and the writing felt stilted at times I wasn't on the edge of my seat when I should have been I don't know I just wasn't thrilled and nervous It also seemed a VERY long time for the protagonist to be still not really dating after her husbands' death in 1972?? and this is 2002 or something after world trade center? And she had never been to the VietNam memorial? I just didn't buy it I think it seemed like a book that had been written in the '70's I really wanted to love it but I didn't I do think it could go through a major overhaul and be a good book though REVIEWI found this book at a book sale The title and cover drew me in immediately I haven't read any of the medical series but I'm positive I will now There are times in the book where your heart will beat fast you need to catch your breath The plot is fast paced The book is woven together with hospital life and the private practiceThe author evidently put a lot of her knowledge of the medical field into this book The things that take place day in and day out in the doctor's offices and the hospitals Death Healing Grief heart broke relatives patients that won't cooperate and those that go out of their way to help the doctors and nurses Of course there is always the administrative side I'm sure that is a pure nightmare In this book there are two patients fighting for their lives and a dedicated nurse Monica is out to discover the truth about the patientsSometimes in the mystery novels you can figure the ending out before you get there Not in this book This book put in a little web towards the end which was unexpected The book is definitely a stand alone but I wish I had had the opportunity to read Book One and Two before this one If you do get the book try to get the first two also and read them in seuence This was an exciting exhilarating and rather informative mystery story I would suggest it to anyone who likes mysteries hospital settings and a book that doesn't give away the ending Assumed Dead is the first I have read in the Monika Everhardt medical series and it will not be the last If you are looking for a breath takingly fast moving mystery this is not for you The plot of Assumed Dead is intertwined with the life of the hospital and the realities facing private medicine particularly in the USAMs Sullivan obviously knows her stuff as Monika battles with staff shortages rampant and grieving relatives and the administration accountants Ethical dilemmas are faced as two patients fight for their lives and Monika driven by the hitherto unexplained loss of her husband in the Vietnam War tries to discover the truth about both patientsI was delighted by the twist at the end of this interesting and intriguing novel All too often I pick the answer to the mystery and sometimes feel a little let downI have to mention for the benefit of readers who download this book after me that there are formatting collapses throughout which are definitely not the fault of the author Someone told me once that this happens from time to time with digital books This happened to one of my own novels and I have come across several in the same situation during the last couple of years I have alerted the author to the problem so I am sure it will be fixed very uicklyThis problem in no way detracted from my enjoyment of the plot and its outcome This wasn't for me I made it 22% in and gave up It all seemed a little farfetched and chaotic to me and sort of jumped around from situation to situation and introduced different characters into the story and never really padded them outThere were formatting errors too that had been overlooked that I saw Replacing I for 1 and a missing fullstop These aggravate although there weren't any spelling mistakes so it earnt the extra star for this Written by a nurse I thought it was very well written and I learned something about Nurses that were in Vietnam though that is only a sub plot It was clean Very little bad language though there is one F word and it was spoken by a Vietnam Vet remembering back to his time there and forgetting himself Different a little confusing not great but OK
