"Dr. Evelyn Sutcliffe's world is a place of chaos, violence and, sometimes, miracles. Now terror has followed her into her sanctuary: the emergency room of University Hospital.

A serial murderer is prowling Manhattan's Upper West Side, leaving a child's doll at the scene of each brutal crime. Evelyn Sutcliffe has already crossed paths with the faceless, cold-blooded psychopath...and she survived. Others have not been as lucky.

A tough professional addicted to the adrenaline rush of life

This thriller rates as a good book for vacations, airplane rides, gloomy weekends alone. Fast-paced and full of suspicious characters. It's fun to guess who done it before the reveal.

I read this back in the Spring of 2004. It was a good thriller.

A BookCrossing find. This was a detective story set in a hospital but personally I am just not that interested in the genre. There was simply too much medical stuff for my taste. The characters were interesting enough and I didn't guess the killer too early.
Marisol
It has a lot of slow parts but I must admit that there were suspenseful Elements.The climax wasn't as exciting as I hoped and reminded me of a Lifetime channel movie.
Pauline
Very slow in parts.Would have enjoyed this much more 40 years ago when I was really into medical thrillers.
