Thank you, Tammy Euliano, and the publisher for the ARC of this great Medical Thriller!
Anesthesiologist Dr. Kate Downey is at it again! Kadence is an implanted defibrillator, and it is new, only 57 patients have it implanted. When Kadence misfires in a patient, Kate began to worry because Aunt Irm has one implanted as well. When another Kadence device misfires, Kate asks her friend, and cardiologist, Dr. Nikki Yarborough to help Aunt Irm so that the device does not misfire in her. While Aunt Irm is helped, other patients are not alerted to the potential misfire. Kate’s friend and lawyer, Christian O’Donnell is in town to help facilitate the sale of MDI, the company that was formed to commercialize Kadence. Now it’s a race against time to find out why the devices are misfiring, and with a threat to Nikki and a mysterious murder, are these misfires attacks?
Misfire is another action-packed, fast-paced medical thriller. And while this is the second book in the Kate Downey series, the books can be read as standalones. You won’t feel like you’re missing out on anything. Euliano has a way with twists! Even while, in hindsight, there are some breadcrumbs, I didn’t put much thought into it and the ending of this book contains a jaw-dropping twist! My favorite character is Aunt Irm – she is the wisest one if anyone is listening; I described her as “sly with bright ideas.” What is enjoyable about these novels is Euliano’s experience shines through, providing the reader with enough information to understand, but not going so far into medical jargon where the reader feels confused. Misfire is due out in January 2023, and I already can’t wait to read a third one in the series!
