I was disappointed with the portrayal of people like Snake and the black detective Willard. The foul language was hard to read and broken English hard to understand.
I am a 81 year old black woman and I have never witness what you wrote in this story about their lack of communication skills or terrible vulgar expressions.
The characters and plots was good but maybe more research of the black people you wanted to write about would have been helpful.
I found it insulting to say the least!

This book has all kinds of components that are interesting in and of themselves: race relations in Detroit, the insanity that is medical school, surviving trauma, living in fear, keeping a large family together, the temptation to cheat on a spouse. And yet in the end it didn't leave me with any real impression other than a "Well, that's done."

What it boils down to is that because the book is trying to be about all these things at the same time, it can't devote real time to most of them without relying on shortcuts. A fellow reviewer mentioned that Detroit feels more like a small town in this book, and that's a big part of the problem: to keep all these themes in the air, the author has to keep up a steady stream of coincidences, with the characters all turning up in each other's lives with a complicated web of interconnections even though they're supposedly part of a larger city that makes that improbable. That can work as a movie device, and perhaps as a literary device too if that's what you set out to do, but I didn't get that sense from this book. Rather, it just feels like a string of coincidences. Some of those coincidences are useful in fueling a sense of paranoia in both the main character and the reader, but it just goes too far. Not only is it harder to suspend belief about the book's events, but it takes away from the book's good points.

For example, the author is clearly aware that med school is a *crazy* place, and she shows us just enough of the crazy to get us interested, but nowhere near enough to satisfy the appetite she's whetted. The fear and instability the traumatized character shows are also interesting, but the string of coincidences and the romantic elements end up distracting from that. The romantic elements themselves were probably fine, yet because of all the other elements vying for my attention at the same time they ended up being one more set of coincidences for me.

Removing even one of the threads running through this novel could have made it a compelling book, but its overstuffing of themes just makes it seem too busy, too cluttered.

Admittedly this is a book I probably never would have read if it didn't pop up on the kindle top 100 free list. Also, admittedly, I found myself having a lukewarm response to the first several chapters. I stuck with it and I'm glad I did because it soon picked up and ended up being a very good story.

Set in Detroit at the time of the historical riots, Laura Nelson is attending the local medical school, her dreams to become a doctor well underway as a first year medical student. The ongoing strife and violence of the city however doesn't seem to care about her dreams when she's assaulted coming out of class late one night in the dead of winter. Laura survives..the assaulter doesn't. Her dreams of being a doctor threatened, the dark cloud of possibly loosing her family also threatened, Laura makes a snap decision. She's not going to tell anybody. Not the police, not her friends, not her husband or family. What follows is a pretty intricate story about the consequences of the decision to keep this dark secret to herself no matter what.

It's not a story about the Detroit riots although the times and the violence in the area during them serve as a backdrop. It's a story about making what you think is the best possible decision at the time and watching the dominoes that are your life fall one after the other, after the other.

There were a few moments where you may be able to see what's coming and there were, quite honestly, some melodramatic 'mushy' moments, but overall this is a well told story that will have you turning the pages one after the other. I liked this so much I just downloaded Twisted Justice to my kindle because it follows the same characters. What's more is sometimes books written by MD's about fictional MDs can get bogged down in overly long passages about medical procedures and nomenclature. This book has just enough to get you involved in what the character's doing but not enough that you feel you need to skip page after page of medical jargon.

Very good story!

I admit, from the first page this book had me comletely hooked. The premise of story, such a controversial time in history, has always fascinated me, and this was no exception. I love medical dramas, being in the medical field myself, so this was right up my alley. The story started out strong, and the tension never stopped building, not even up to the last pages. That being said, though, there were definitely some jarring errors I noticed within this novel.

First, the drama that is involved right at the beginning of the book between Laura and Johnny seemed a little...rushed, a little brushed off. I understand it was written within a rush of riotous scenes, but still. The casualness in which her husband brushed off their lack of love life bothered me a little too. I know for one my husband would at least find it suspicious.

The book, though, hit quite a few things right on the head as far as accuracy goes, especially the affair and the failed relationships between the human doctors. From what I have seen, it's all too common for that to happen in the medical world. The action was intense, and the story kept me clinging to the pages until I got to the last page.
