Trudy Genova has the best job any nurse could want, working on set as a medical consultant for a NY movie studio. No more uniforms, bedpans or emergencies, until at the actor whose overtures she’s refused dies suddenly while taping a hospital scene–but not before pointing his finger accusingly at Trudy. When detectives view Trudy as a suspect, she sets out on an investigation to clear her name. Then a second death occurs, and Trudy realizes she’s put herself in jeopardy.
Review: A thoroughly enjoyable and easy read. There is a lot of switching back and forth from first person pov to third person pov, but it works really well for this story which is both structurally and grammatically sound.
I was immediately drawn into the world of a nurse (Trudy) who works behind the scenes of a popular soap-opera as script consultant for medical scenarios… Very original and creative! The characters are nicely developed and when a lead character of the soap is murdered in a manner that implicates Trudy as the main suspect, I had great difficulty putting the book down.
Graff, keeps the reader guessing with some good red herrings as the story develops, new relationships are made, and another cast member is murdered… Great whodunit! I’ve said enough.
