The SECOND fast-paced medical thriller in The Gina Mazzio Series.
HELP ME QUIT KILLING REDHEADS!
That’s the plea RN Gina Mazzio hears when she gets an anonymous call the night before her wedding. The cops say it’s a crank call. Her fiancé says she’s altar-shy. Her fellow workers call her “silly”.
But Gina’s got a bad feeling…
And then it turns out two of her fellow nurses at San Francisco’s Ridgewood Hospital are missing. Instead of a honeymoon, she’s plunged into the dark world of the black market trade in human body parts. Need we mention this is not medical suspense for the faint-hearted?
When a third nurse, Gina’s redheaded friend Megan Ann Hendricks, fails to show up at work after a date with a charismatic pharma salesman, Gina’s suspicions begin to dovetail with those of another clever woman sleuth, San Francisco Detective Pepper Yee.
But her investigation gets a little too zealous and Gina ends up a kidnap victim offered up to a serial killer with extremely grisly propensities—and a lucrative sideline in black market body parts. Did we forget to say: This suspenseful hospital mystery is not for sissies? Should we say it again? Don’t come near this fast-paced medical mystery if you’re the least bit squeamish!
Fans of hard-boiled medical thrillers will love it, though. As well as lovers of serial killer fiction, strong women sleuths, hospital mysteries, and all medical fiction, especially fans of Tess Gerritsen, Carolyn McCray, Eileen Dreyer, and Robin Cook. It should delight devotees of Patricia Cornwell too.
