My Thoughts-

I have read many of the author's books and my favorite was Testimony.  I felt it was a little unrealistic, predictable and It took me a while to get into the storyline. I enjoyed the rescues that were performed in the story. If you were not familiar with medical jargon and abbreviations, you would have difficulty understanding the scenes.I am not saying it is a bad book but it was just not for me.
