Synopsis

Author Timothy Sheard has captured the pulse of hospital life and given voice to the unseen minions who keep a great medical institution running in this finely crafted murder mystery. With the James Madison University Hospital board of directors desperately seeking a new revenue stream, an egomaniacal surgeon attempts a reckless new procedure that promises to bring millions of dollars to the hospital and international fame to the physician. But the body of a lovely pharmaceutical representative has been found in a patient’s bed, threatening to ruin the hospital’s reputation and shatter its financial security. Amateur sleuth Lenny Moss, custodian and union rep for the hospital workers, is determined to solve the mystery and bring the killer to justice despite the frenzied work pace and inhuman hours he and his co-workers are enduring, as their jobs and one man’s freedom hang in the balance. From the operating table to the pharmacist’s desk, from the emergency room to the human resources office, Sheard’s vividly drawn characters map out the anatomy of a crime with the discerning eyes of the finest clinician and the dogged determination of a master detective. Battling indifferent hospital policymakers every step of the way, the nurses, aides, critical care workers, secretaries, and morgue attendants of James Madison University Hospital prove that unity in the face of danger can defeat even the most cunning criminal.

Project MUSE

This book works three ways: as a page-turner crime novel, as an unvarnished picture of work at a big-city hospital, and as a warts-and-all portrait of a tough, generous, possibly too cocky yet very creative union steward.
