I write this review as a member of Rosie’s Book Review Team, and thank her and the author for the ARC copy of the book, which I freely chose to review.
Having worked in the health services (although in the UK) for a number of years, and having treated some patients suffering from PTSD (although I’m no specialist), I was intrigued by this debut novel. I was even more interested when I read the author’s biography and learned of her first-hand experience as a healthcare administrator, as that

The Review

From the book’s first pages the stage is set for a massive cover up, as files are discovered having been tampered with and one therapist’s day off turns into a life altering journey as she becomes part of a massive conspiracy involving several of her patients, (along with others), and discovers the lengths they are willing to go to in order to make money and cover up their actions.

What really sold this story however was not just the action and suspense, but the very human element of

I greatly enjoyed this book, and especially appreciated the detail and obvious political, scientific, medical and legal research that went into writing it. While the author has chosen a field (working with Post Traumatic Distress Syndrome veterans) in which she has toiled, she was not shy about exploring the nuances of related areas of the law and politics that greatly impact such important treatment. The blending of the varied and sometimes competing forces helped solidify the plot, while ...more

The story based in Arizona with futuristic world settings. And these futuristic glimpses are true projections of current times. There are such as privatization of government sectors, stringent law, and order, etc (there are more but I don’t want to spill the beans).

It has the elements of fabulous corporate espionage or thrillers. It is more realistic than other books in the same genre. The book moved at a good pace with the author giving the reader a notion of the timeline. The entire thing

Collateral Carnage is a thrilling read, told from the perspectives of several characters, that tells a compelling story about a health care system wrought with corruption. The characters were real and believable, each with his/her own motivations and stakes. Chris Saper is obviously an expert, well-research on her medical practices and science.

While I hope that I never have to witness a story like this take place in the industry that I've proudly worked my whole life, the plausibility is truly

I loved this book. It kept my interest from beginning to end. It was fun to read, interesting to learn about the issues, and scary to ponder the consequences of the subject matter.

I appreciated the fact that the chapters were short, making it easier to put down when I needed to get back to the real world!

The ending left me with a lot of questions, but then again I presume (and hope!) the author is working on a sequel which will answer them. Great first novel!
