    To call Gina Mazzio a detective is stretching things a bit She s an RN To her hospital administrator, she may be a snoop and a busybody To her patients, on the other hand, she is a watchdog, even a guardian angel Nurse Gina is devoted to caring for her patients She is tough, gritty, purposeful, and compassionate She is a gal from the Bronx with Italian roots Need I sayIn Bone Dry An Action Packed Medical Technothriller, a patient awaiting his bone marrow engraftment rapidly decli To call Gina Mazzio a detective is stretching things a bit She s an RN To her hospital administrator, she may be a snoop and a busybody To her patients, on the other hand, she is a watchdog, even a guardian angel Nurse Gina is devoted to caring for her patients She is tough, gritty, purposeful, and compassionate She is a gal from the Bronx with Italian roots Need I sayIn Bone Dry An Action Packed Medical Technothriller, a patient awaiting his bone marrow engraftment rapidly declines and dies His marrow went missing from the lab, and Gina is determined to find out why The reader learns early on who is behind it, and why That in no way diminishes the drama of the storyline as we follow Gina through her stressful job as a nurse on the oncology unit We see other patients in the same situation as the man who died Gina suspects, but the victims have been threatened that they must keep quiet.I m not sure if the medical portions are medically accurate, although since the author is a nurse, I felt that they were convincing The responses of the hospital staff and administrator seemed expedited beyond what seems likely in a bureaucratic facility such as a major hospital, but I m willing to suspend some belief for the sake of the dramatic The personal relationships between the characters, Gina and her boyfriend Harry, and on the flip side, between the marrow nappers, were well written Yes, there is violence It defines the relationship between Faye and Frankie.Is Bone Dry a great book No, but I still found it hard to put down It was so readable because the authors made me care about the characters Gina Mazzio has great instincts when it comes to understanding her patients and anticipating their needs She knows when something s not quite right I loved her devotion to her job and her stick to itiveness, despite the risk to her job and her safety Besides that, anyone who works on an oncology unit and fights someone who takes advantage of cancer patients is one of the good guys.3.5 stars

    3.5 stars Medical thriller with an RN as protagonist Really liked the main character and her boy friend Had problems believing some of the plot Nevertheless, immensely readable Fast paced and surprisingly violent in parts Fantastic narration by Beth Richmond Would definitely try another in this series.

    This books falls in the ranks of Oh my God, could that really happen Medical thrillers and suspense are one of my new favorite genres as I m finding I like the way writers minds work around the day to day life of medical personnel Bone Dry takes your average nurse and a pitiful lab tech along with a critical care sidekick who can be extremely annoying, by the way and throws them all into a melting pot of annoying characters.Truthfully they re not all annoying, but at the risk of revealin This books falls in the ranks of Oh my God, could that really happen Medical thrillers and suspense are one of my new favorite genres as I m finding I like the way writers minds work around the day to day life of medical personnel Bone Dry takes your average nurse and a pitiful lab tech along with a critical care sidekick who can be extremely annoying, by the way and throws them all into a melting pot of annoying characters.Truthfully they re not all annoying, but at the risk of revealing too much we ll go with that POSSIBLY A BIT OF SPOILERAGE HERE Bone Dry touched a little too close to home I recently had a bone marrow transplant and that made me sad, angry and ready to throw my Kindle across the room because of the stupidity and weakness of Faye, the assholedness of the boyfriend and the roller coaster ride of emotions that each patient displayed.OKAY, KEEP READING I gave this book a 5 because I thoroughly enjoyed it and it kept me interested from start to finish, but it s not the best medical thriller you ll ever read That said, I m definitely interested in reading another book by Bette Golden Lamb because I think her ideas are truly grand and will get evenbetter over time

    For some reason I couldn t bond with the book I think that the reason was its opening case that didn t make much sense to me and was very unbelievable Later on I found out that although there was a lot of action in the book, the action itself was starched too thin spreading through few pages repeating the same details over and over again At certain points I started flipping through the pages reading the 1st sentence of each paragraph without losing the main story.Personally I prefer reading For some reason I couldn t bond with the book I think that the reason was its opening case that didn t make much sense to me and was very unbelievable Later on I found out that although there was a lot of action in the book, the action itself was starched too thin spreading through few pages repeating the same details over and over again At certain points I started flipping through the pages reading the 1st sentence of each paragraph without losing the main story.Personally I prefer reading Cook or Palmer

    This book could use a good editor a number of typos Mostly, it lacked cohesive characters I didn t really understand who the main characters were or what they stood for I didn t connect with them at all The premise was ok, but the characters really took away from the story.

    A very good plot idea and interesting characters The formatting errors and typos were too distracting for me to give this one a higher rating.
