I really liked the premise of this book. The execution needed a better editor in my opinion. I felt it dragged and the writing felt stilted at times. I wasn't on the edge of my seat when I should have been. I don't know- I just wasn't thrilled and nervous. It also seemed a VERY long time for the protagonist to be still not really dating after her husbands' death in 1972?? and this is 2002 or something after world trade center? And she had never been to the VietNam memorial? I just didn't buy it. ...more

REVIEW

I found this book at a book sale. The title and cover drew me in immediately. I haven't read any of the medical series but I'm positive I will now. There are times in the book where your heart will beat fast, you need to catch your breath. The plot is fast paced. The book is woven together with hospital life and the private practice.

The author evidently put a lot of her knowledge of the medical field into this book. The things that take place day in and day out in the doctor's offices and

Assumed Dead is the first I have read in the Monika Everhardt medical series and it will not be the last. If you are looking for a breath-takingly fast moving mystery, this is not for you.

Ms Sullivan obviously knows her stuff as Monika battles with staff shortages, rampant - and grieving - relatives, and the administration accountants. Ethical dilemmas are fac

This wasn't for me. I made it 22% in and gave up. It all seemed a little farfetched and chaotic to me and sort of jumped around from situation to situation and introduced different characters into the story and never really padded them out.
There were formatting errors too that had been overlooked that I saw, Replacing I for 1 and a missing fullstop. These aggravate although there weren't any spelling mistakes so it earnt the extra star for this.

Different, a little confusing, not great, but OK

Written by a nurse. I thought it was very well written and I learned something about Nurses that were in Vietnam- though that is only a sub plot. It was clean. Very little bad language though there is one "F" word and it was spoken by a Vietnam Vet remembering back to his time there and forgetting himself.
