The SECOND fast-paced medical thriller in The Gina Mazzio Series.
STOP ME BEFORE I KILL AGAIN
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 “crazy.”
But Gina has a bad feeling…
Then two of her fellow nurses at San Francisco’s Ridgewood Hospital go missing. Instead of a honeymoon, Gina’s plunged into the dark world of the black market trade in human body parts. This is not a medical thriller 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 pharmaceutical salesman, Gina’s suspicions begin to dovetail with those of SFPD’s Inspector Pepper Yee.
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. 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 will lovers of serial killer fiction, strong women sleuths, hospital mysteries, and all medical fiction. Think Tess Gerritsen, Carolyn McCray, Eileen Dreyer, and Robin Cook. It should delight devotees of Patricia Cornwell too.
