Book Review

INTENSIVE CARE
by Jessica Andersen

Genre: Series

RT Rating

When one of Dr. Ripley Davis' patients dies, the deceased woman's distraught husband attacks her, ranting that Ripley, the head of radiation oncology, murdered his wife. Zachary Cage, the new radiation safety officer, takes the claim seriously. An investigation uncovers more deaths, and Zach must determine whether Ripley is dangerous or in danger herself. Jessica Andersen's plot is innovative, and the
scientific content seems authentic. Occasionally though, Intensive Care (3) comes off as unintentionally farcical, with too much activity happening in broom closets and characters using terms like "red-hot bodies" to talk about patients
who die of irradiation. Also, minor quibbles distract from the reading experience, like a character using a cellular phone
in the hospital.
