The author demonstrates the conflicts and subsequent resolutions not only on a medical but a spiritual level that accompany working on the nightshift in an ER. There are mysteries, problem solving; not only on a diagnostic but human personality level. I can honestly say this is one of the best books I have ever read, and would recommend it to anyone, whether you are interested in medical issues or not for it is very "human" in it's nature.
The only negatives I found with Lesslie's books was that it was difficult for me to keep track of all of the characters - workers and especially the patients - because there were so many. A patient might be mentioned in one chapter, then mentioned again a few chapters later in a different story when the doctor would go to check on him. Since I was not good with names, I had to try to figure out which patient that was or flip back a few chapters and find out. Also, because these books were based on true stories from the ER, not all patients survived, which of course, was sad.
All in all, I enjoyed reading this book as well as Lesslie's previous books. They are filled with interesting stories about people trying to save lives. I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys those types of stories.
