"A spot-on debut....Lyons delivers a breathtakingly fast-paced medical thriller."~Publishers Weekly
A gripping behind-the-scenes drama of four women who face life and death every day…
July 1st—Transition Day. The day new staff at Pittsburgh’s Angels of Mercy Hospital start their jobs, including L.A.-transplant Dr. Lydia Fiore, the new ER attending physician. Not a good day to lose a patient—especially not the Chief of Surgery’s son. To save her career, Lydia must discover the truth behind her patient’s death, even if it leads her into unfamiliar—and risky—territory.
Drawing from her own experiences as a pediatric ER doctor, CJ Lyons reveals the secrets of an urban trauma center in a novel Lisa Gardner called "a pulse-pounding adrenaline rush."
