WHERE DEADLY SECRETS ARE THE NORM . . .
Three weeks after completing her residency in pediatric cardiology, Dr. Jacey Flanigan moves from the Pacific Northwest to Manhattan to begin her career at the prestigious Children’s Heart Hospital. But after an unpleasant encounter with an arrogant heart surgeon on her first day, Jacey begins to realize that the medical profession is not what she expected. She learns that enigmatic physician behavior and questionable cardiac surgical practices are cloaked in secrecy—and she is expected to follow suit. . . .
EVEN FOR THOSE WHO’VE SWORN TO HELP.
Jacey soon finds herself facing the difficult moral dilemma: turn a blind eye to malpractice and protect her fledgling career, or dig deeper into suspicious activity and face the consequences?

Prognosis Critical is a medical thriller that is written by Gary Birken, MD. This is my first exposure to this author and I enjoyed the book very much. This book will take you on a heart pounding adventure. Dr. Jacey Flanigan has started working at Children’s Heart Hospital in Manhattan. As soon as she arrives she feels like something is not right with this hospital. Some of the doctors are very secretive. They will not let anyone watch their surgeries and will only operate if it's a certain team.
Being new to the hospital, Jacey wonders how to poke around without arousing suspicion. Then she sees someone following her when she is off duty. What in the world is going on? This book is a perfect blend of mystery, suspense, fraud and action. I will be looking out for more of the author's books.
