Whoa, what a roller coaster of a story!

I wasn't able to read the previous books of this series but because it can be read as a standalone, it was still worth it. The story starts when Dr. Hope Sze, together with Dr. John Tucker, encounter a mad kidnapper who is looking for the mother of his child at the hospital. When the two of them ended up being hostages, that's the time when action takes place.

I loved the fast pacing of this book and the overall thrill that came along with it. It was such a

Here's a book that's easy to read, but hard to review.

It's a page-turner, thrilling while sensitive, super-serious while witty, and gutsy while insightful. So why so difficult to review?

In the first place, I want to give my reader information about the story, but I don't want to give anything away. No spoilers.

More than that, however, it makes me feel like an appraiser of fine property confronted with an item for which there is nothing comparable. It's simply unlike anything else I've ever read.

A night on call turns into a tense hostage situation for OB resident, Dr Hope Sze, when a man dressed in a burqa pulls out a gun on the hunt for his pregnant girlfriend. Can Hope and friend Tucker stop the bloodshed and talk themselves out of this deadly situation?

This tense and taut short suspense medical thriller is lightened up by the sense of humour Hope injects into the narrative, but everything that can go wrong seems to in this heart-stopping story.

The booze and drug addled antagonist is

This was more of a thriller than a mystery but I enjoyed it nonetheless. Very good read.

Stockholm Syndrome by Melissa Yi

Whoa! What a thriller. I couldn’t put it down. Melissa Yi pushed the suspense to the brink.
Brilliant character development as the killer on a murderous rampage puts the breaks on in the claustrophobic confines of a hospital examination room where he has confined, at gunpoint, Dr. Hope Sze, Dr. John Tucker and a pregnant woman with a baby desperate to be born. Yi keeps the reader on the edge of the precipice as she plunges us into the depths of the killer’s psycho

I was so excited to get my hands on the latest Hope Sze thriller…and what a thriller it was! I was captivated from the first page and ended up getting out of bed at 5am so that I could finish it and find out what happened - that’s how compelling a read it is. The thing I like most about this series is Hope’s sarcastic wit and this book is filled with her one-liners even in the grimmest of situations. Another thing I love about this series is that it is set in Montreal, my hometown, and it is alw ...more

Melissa Yi is a talented physician and storyteller. Stockholm Syndrome unfolds quickly after a resident doctor and a pregnant woman are taken hostage at gunpoint. Everything is questioned. Everything falls apart. Just like an episode of Grey's Anatomy, regular people are put in heartbreaking situations. The beauty of Stockholm Syndrome is it's writing, it's ability to pull you in and leave you wanting more. It's a quick-read, but it never feels like you're being rushed - instead each chapter dra ...more
