Read a few months ago and should have reviewed it back then. I forget details so quickly.

I remember feeling so frustrated and wondering if Merritt would ever talk. She has made an unsuccessful suicide attempt and we don't know whether it was because of her younger sister's serious illness, a reaction to having possibly killed an HMO executive, or something else. It was a real page-turner. As with many medical thrillers (a genre I have come to love), there is an HMO that doesn't want to pay for a life-saving treatment. Sounds familiar - I've recently experienced something similar in my own family. Shameful.

Highly recommend the book!

From New York Times bestselling author Stephen White comes the sixth suspense thriller featuring psychologist Dr. Alan Gregory.Summoned to the hospital to learn the motives behind a teenage girl's suicide attempt, Alan discovers that the girl's young stepsister lies near death in another hospital with a heart disease. Denied an experimental new treatment that could save her life by her parent's managed-care provider, the stepsister has become a symbol of a health care system more concerned with costs than with the lives of its patients. And when a wealthy executive of the family's HMO is found dead, Alan and Denver detective Sam Purdy uncover the truth that links the teenage girl to his death, and the truth behind a family willing to kill in the name of love...and revenge.

Came back in the Medicine Chest V. Looks interesting. Great homemade label!

Good read. This is a child psychologist who happens to be friends with a cop. Having said that, the plot is tight, the ethics are good, and the writing is taut. I'll look for this author again.
