The book shows us patient care through the eyes of the nurses who are the frontline of defense for keeping patience safe. I was impressed with the ease with which Triolo gave the reader complex medical information - so that the layman (non-health care professional) could understand it. Her characters were vibrant and gave the reader insight to the strong "team" aspects of nursing. The villain targets the weak and marginal in life. And Triolo gives us the very real sense - that no one would be ab ...more

“The nurse was the first and last line of defense for patients,” a character in Death Without Cause observes. What happens when that defense fails against a calculated and knowledgeable killer?

Triolo is a registered nurse as well as a skilled writer. Just read the prologue of Death Without Cause and you can’t help but understand why this woman would want to study medicine and write mysteries to boot! She makes the heart sound solid and sexy and desperately fragile at the same time, an organ too

Pamela Triolo, debut mystery author, has penned a hit with her first book! As a nurse myself (and author of nurse-themed mysteries), I'm delighted to see a book that depicts nursing practice as it really is! Too many books, movies, and TV shows get nursing all too wrong. (Nurse Jackie is the exception.) The story is creepy enough to satisfy any thriller reader and just right for me. A stalker treads the hospital floors and I loved watching as Santos (nurse protagonist) and the killer traded scen ...more

Well, this is not my usual genre, and I didn't find it to be particularly well written. It was fun to read for me as my dad is a minor character in the book! I think I should get him some hair ties and a bass guitar!

"Robin Cook and Tess Gerritsen are authors of medical thrillers I’ve read in the past. Pamela Triolo compares favorably; a bit less graphic and a touch more cozy. All three authors use their medical backgrounds to give an insiders’ view of health care settings, professional ethics and politics." Michelle reviews the medical mystery Death Without Cause by Dubuque native Pamela Triolo
