Genre: Mystery
Publication Date: 1985
Pages: 344
Challenges: Medical Mystery 2008 Challenge #3

Kate Bennett is a pathologist at Boston’s Metropolitan Hospital. She’s got a lot going on. Her boss is getting ready to retire and wants to recommend Kate to take his place as department head. Her husband (who is a first class jerk) and his wealthy father want her to stay home and have babies and be a good wife who supports her husband’s political ambitions. Now she’s investigating the deaths of two young women who appear to have nothing in common other than the odd set of lab results. Throw in a prologue from Nazi Germany and some evil pharmaceutical company antics and you’ve got something that might be a movie of the week.

Neither the best nor the worst medical thriller I’ve read, but it was OK for a vacation book.
