This is an intriguing book, full of plenty of action and a whole lot more. The characters, like Alex, Robert and Mitch, are interesting and complex enough to be real people. You feel like you're really getting to know them and understand how they change throughout the course of the book, and, of course, it pulls in the culture of voodoo that's ingrained in Louisiana deeper than anything. I enjoyed this book and I think it has a really good plot to go along with it. I'll also be looking out for more from this series because I know there's got to be more to the story and the characters.~Reviewed by Samantha Dewitt (Rivera) for Readers' Favorite 8.10.2016

I believe this author did a lot of research. I thoroughly enjoyed this book.
What a gripping, and suspenseful ebook. I could visualize these characters, from the gangsters, to the doctors, administrate, to the patients. I read this ebook in 1 sitting.
Judith enjoys writing and it’s realized as you read. A must read
Something I especially enjoy in her stories which usually isn't mentioned in a book review is her use of simple adjectives. Enough to describe a thing or situation to make it vivid, but not overboard in terms of too much detail or seeming to stretch for words that don't truly fit.
She's truly an author worth following, enjoying, and seeking out.

Set her character among strange people who are very unpleasant and some who are downright lethal, throw in the backdrop of New Orleans and its heritage of voodoo practices, add the extensive medical knowledge of the author (she really does know what she’s talking about) and you have the ingredients for a fast-paced medical thriller.
The book picks up speed as it goes, taking the reader on a journey through darkness and frailties of human nature. It is written from an omniscient point of view but it is Alex’s eyes we see through for most of the time and we follow her bewilderment and terror. Medical thrillers are no a genre I usually read but I am intrigued enough by the character of Alex Destephano to read the next book in the series as well.
But Alex's orderly world is cut short as patients leave the hospital even if their lives depend on its care. Then nurses call in sick creating total chaos. She has to investigate matters and solve this impending chaos soon. Her dealings with hospital CEO Don Montgomery and tough but fair police Captain Jack Francoise are expertly laid out with great dialogue and a liberal sprinkling of hospital technobabble that never once confused this reader.
So if you are into taught, high-tension medical thrillers, love Cajun food, Mardi Gras and especially Voodoo and the dazzling colour of New Orleans then this book will fulfil all your desires.
A FIVE STAR medical thriller and very highly recommended.
Ms Lucci's clear writing flows smoothly and keeps you engaged until the last page.
