About the Author

Jules M. Seletz graduated from the Virginia Military Institute in 1953 as a second lieutenant, and the Chicago Medical School in 1958 with an MD. Following five years of post-graduate training at the Boston City Hospital, he practiced as a General and Peripheral Vascular Surgeon for 35 years.

He enjoyed a 41-year military career in the United States Army, rising to the rank of full colonel, having served as a second lieutenant in the Field Artillery in 1953 during the Korean Conflict; and then deploying to Morocco, West Germany, and Botswana in sub-Sahara Africa; and finally to Saudi Arabia and Kuwait during Desert Storm, as a military surgeon. Retired from the United States Army in 1994 while stationed at West Point, Dr. Seletz is now in his seventh year as a physician surveyor for the Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations-JCAHO.

JCAHO is the nationally and internationally accepted accrediting body for the Healthcare Industry. For the past four years, Dr. Seletz has had several occasions to survey hospitals who have experienced untoward incidents, mishaps, catastrophic outcomes-sentinel events.

Dr. Seletz lives in Lincoln, New Hampshire, in the heart of the White Mountains where he enjoys skiing and mountain hiking with his wife of Acadian heritage. Together, they have seven children and ten grandchildren. In addition to five novels that involve sentinel events, he has also written three historical fiction novels-a quartet of historical fiction that mirrors his own life during the twentieth century including his father's emigration from Russia at the turn of the last century-a second one that describes the plight of the Acadians following expulsion from Nova Scotia during the French and Indian War in 1755 and their survival in Northern Maine until 1955, and a third one that describes the establishment of a sawmill town in Northern New Hampshire.

I would recommend reading this book as soon as possible.

I could not put this book down, not until Jake Stein and his sixteen-year-old new-found associate solved the dilemma.

Author Seletz shows a great insight into adolescent behavior.

Having read and enjoyed A Sentinel Event, I was eager to read Code Pink as well. The book deals with one of the most frightening events imaginable, the abduction of newborn babies. It was very realistic in describing the events that took place, keeping the reader on the edge of his seat throughout by not giving away too much. The plot developed continuously throughout the book, making it an exciting page-turner. Additionally, it was very easy to relate to and empathize with one of the central characters, Charlie Williams, and Jake Stein continued to be an admirable, although human, hero. I would recommend Code Pink to anyone who likes a fast and suspenseful read.

I enjoyed the book alot. I especially loved the rapport that Dr. Jake Stein was able to develop with the boy, Charlie Williams. Author Seletz shows a great insight into adolescent behavior.
This was an action packed mystery-a medical thriller. It was interesting to find out who was in charge of all the "nasties".
This was the second book I've read in the Sentinal Event series. Jake is becoming an old friend. And his wife Rhoda gets involved in this one as well. I liked this one even more than the first.

Code Pink held my interest from the first page. The character Jacob Stein was very believable and a great hero. The exciting sequence of events that transpires makes for a gripping plot that made it very hard to put the book down! I also found it educational in that the book included much information regarding the inner workings of an acute care facility and what happens during an investigation. The relationship that developed between Jake and the boy was very endearing and added greatly to this excellent book!

I found Code Pink, a Sentinel Event to be even better than Sentinel Event, which I loved. This latest book was exciting and rivoting. Having had a child only 4 1/2 years ago, I was very intriqued by the turn of events in this book. The author, my favorite, brings the characters and events to life, leaving you with the feeling you were apart of the whole story. I could only imagine how I would have felt if this had happen to me. To not read this book would be like missing the best movie of the year. I would recommend reading this book as soon as possible. Once you start reading it, you won't want to put it down. Enjoy!
