9780140114003: Blood Run

Dr. Evelyn Sutcliffe works and thrives in an urban warzone -- battling death everyday in the Emergency Room of Manhattan's University Hospital. But even her superior skill cannot save Shelley Reinish -- a fellow doctor, a close friend and apparent suicide -- dead from a drug overdose. This time the Reaper has won, leaving Evelyn distraught and devastated, and questioning her abilities as a healer.

But why would Shelley -- a healthy, talented young surgeon with a good marriage -- take her own life? It is a question that haunts Dr. Sutcliffe; one that is leading her into the hidden corners of the medical world toward terrifying secrets that reside in the darkest recesses of the human heart.

And the next life she must fight to save will be her own. . .

About the Author:

Leah Ruth Robinson, the author of the novels First Cutand Blood Run, is a New York State certified emergency medical technician. She has served in the Emergency Department of St. Luke's Hospital (St. Luke's/Roosevelt Hospital Center) in New York City and taught Basic Life Support for several years at Lenox Hill Hospital, also in New York City. She is an active member on the national board of directors of Mystery Writers of America and is a member of the steering committee of the New York/Tri-State Chapter of Sisters in Crime. Married to writer John Rousmaniere, she divides her time between Manhattan and Stamford, Connecticut. She is currently at work on her next novel of medical suspense featuring Dr. Evelyn Sutcliffe.

From Publishers Weekly:

A suspense-packed, hard-edged tale of the real world in one of New York's big hospitals, this first novel by a medical technician has good credentials as an authentic medical thriller. Evelyn Sutcliffe, M.D., resident in emergency medicine, is on duty when her colleague, Dr. Shelley Reinish, is brought in to the emergency room by her frantic husband; she is comatose from an overdose of medication, apparently a suicide attempt. Attempts to save her life fail and Evelyn grieves for this friend who had a brillant future in surgery. Drawn into the case is Evelyn's lover and Dr. Reinish's psychiatrist, Phil Carchiollo. Did he have clues that Shelley was contemplating suicide? Or was her death murder? Stories of bizarre behavior in the operating room lead a shaken Evelyn to other discoveries about the dead surgeon. Tales of her eccentric conduct with staff doctors and talk of an expose she was writing that contained provocative interviews with her peers are mysterious developments. When Evelyn's own investigation turns up some horrifying surprises it becomes clear that Shelley's life was not as placid as everyone believed. Riveting prose tends to redeem occasional wordy passages of medicalese (anesthesia to the uninitiated) and the setting is authentic and the characters believable. Though now and again melodramatic, the story unfolds at a forceful clip.
