I usually like Eileen Dreyer's medical mysteries but this one dragged so bad and was so boring for most of it that I had to force myself to finish it. I really liked Timmie Leary (Traumawoman, Forensics Fairy and Death investigator) and reporter Daniel Murphy. They were both well-fleshed out characters with interesting pasts and somewhat promising futures...eventually. The whole "who's killing the elderly residents of the alzheimer's ward" plot was boring as hell. I think this book could easily have been culled to less than 300 pages and not suffered any. I did like the last third of the book when the action finally started and the suspects were finally narrowed down to a manageable level. I was surprised at the culprit since I had totally chosen the wrong one. An ok book but not as good as her other novels.
