Neurosurgeon Tyler Matthews discovers something is wrong with his hospital's state-of-the-art medical records software. But, when he brings it to the attention of hospital administrators, they tell him that it's human error and that the software is infalliable. Tyler then conducts his own inverstigation, trying to get proof, and ends up running for his life. I enjoyed this book, with its plot twists and turns, but, I was a tad frustrated by Tyler's refusal to trust the FBI agent who could possib ...more

As in Allen Wyler's book, Dead Ringer, DEADLY ERRORS, will captivate you from page one. Allen Wyler's books make me want to read with one eye open - that is how realistic his stories are. He picks the reader up and drops them right smack in the middle of each situation as you race against time to figure our the plot. If nothing else, DEADLY ERRORS will make you cringe upon having to enter a hospital for even the most minor of procedures!

The book makes you realize that the computer age may not b

In Deadly Errors, a series of deaths are linked to the new computerized record system at Maynard Medical Center. Dr. Tyler Matthews is the first to suspect that something is wrong, but he can't convince others that the system, currently in a beta test at the hospital, is responsible. His job, his marriage, his reputation, and his life all come under fire when he challenges the hospital and the corporation who see him as a threat to their multimillion dollar profits.

I enjoyed this book. It conta

In Allen Wyler's Deadly Errors, one of his finest medical thrillers, he would enthrall and thrill you for sure.

This was my final selection for the Medical Mystery Madness challenge and another great read by Allen Wyler. A Seattle hospital has switched to using an electronic system for patients' medical records. This system is supposed to help eliminate human error and less mistakes in patient care. But Tyler Mathews, a neurosurgeon discovers that something is not quite right with the system when one of his patients' records shows an inaccurate dose. Soon he's learning about a patient who received the wro ...more

I'm generally not a fan of medical mystery/thrillers but I gave this one a go because it's a first novel by a Seattle brain surgeon set in Seattle. I'm sure glad I did. Dr. Tyler Matthews is trying to put his life back in order after a job set back and a separation from his wife. But now things are piling up again. The computer program at the new hospital is either showing him errors that no one else is seeing or he's just flat going nuts. He was falsely accused of drug use before and now, once ...more

Not badly written and medical people might enjoy it more than I did but I found it exhausting.

If you can get past the first few chapters, which a chock full of technical medical terms that most readers would say...HUH?... then this book is a good read! The second half of the book gets very suspensful. If you start to read this one and think after the first few chapters...I can't get into this...hang in there. You will get into it. Just be patient.

Love the story. But, I give it 3 stars instead of 4 stars because after you read certain pages, it become predictable how the story will end. Anyway, I still feel that this is great book. Cannot wait to read another book from Mr. Wyler.

This is a fast paced novel that engages the reader from the first page and carries through, well written and carefully plotted with believable dialogue and characters drawn with a fine pen.
Vicki Hinze
Strong language warning. Very good story, strong thriller. Not overly graphic, IMHO, and good characters. More than enjoyable. Very good book.
