Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Heron, a nurse and author of the nonfiction bestseller Intensive Care , cobbles together a lumpy, unevenly written novel from disparate elements of New Age mysticism, creepy thrillers and standard romantic yarns. Red-haired heroine Cat Richardson is a deliberately daffy, self-confessed "Sister of Masochism"--a nurse, that is--at San Francisco's Mercy Hospital, where she gives her superiors plenty of grief and her patients enormous support. Entrusted to her care are Corky, a suicidal adolescent, and Lucy Cross, a gifted artist viciously beaten by her boyfriend, a tormented male model. A blind newsseller named Gage who possesses "the sight" knows that Cat has power she isn't tapping. As her spiritual guide, Gage eggs her on toward danger and romance with the cop investigating the Cross case. ("You wear the haunted look of someone who has stared the beast in the face and survived," that swain observes.) There's a creative, rough-edged charm to the cheerfully obscene repartee between Cat and best friend Nora, but the heavy-handed psychological motives fueling the action owe a lot to bestsellers from the thriving recovery industry. BOMC alternate.

From Library Journal

This oddly intriguing combination of nurse and detective story becomes more engrossing as it gains momentum. Cat Richardson lives a nurse's usual life--she's underpaid, overworked, and unappreciated by the hospital administration and the doctors. The story takes place over the course of a week when Cat's patients include an AIDS victim, a teenager who has attempted suicide, and a famous artist whose psychopathic lover has beaten her severely and may be coming back to finish the job. Detective Padcula's intervention is the catalyst that sets everything in motion as Cat's involvement with her patients brings on the final confrontation. The raw, gritty atmosphere of a hospital is well captured here by its author, a former nurse. She makes the reader think about death and the people who deal with it on a daily basis. BOMC alternate; previewed in Prepub Alert, LJ 11/1/91.
