    Description Doctors Kate Taylor and Elita Romanov are sick and tired of the constant abuse the community suffers at the hands of a local gang the Plagues The vicious gang members not only cost the hospital hundreds of millions of dollars in unpaid medical bills, but they are notorious for abducting, terrorizing and raping staff members on and off the property of Parkview Hospital The local police are paid to look the other way, and hospital management refuses to acknowledge the problem, but Description Doctors Kate Taylor and Elita Romanov are sick and tired of the constant abuse the community suffers at the hands of a local gang the Plagues The vicious gang members not only cost the hospital hundreds of millions of dollars in unpaid medical bills, but they are notorious for abducting, terrorizing and raping staff members on and off the property of Parkview Hospital The local police are paid to look the other way, and hospital management refuses to acknowledge the problem, but the gang s victims are ready to fight back ready to finally say, NO Can Kate, Elita and the people they care about find a way to cleanup the streets without getting themselves killed Will risking their own lives and reputations save the place they call home Review I think I have found my new favorite genre I am in the medical field, so it should come as no surprise, but until recently I had not found a modern medical thriller that lived up to my expectations Maybe it is because I define a thriller as action packed , suspenseful , gritty , compelling , and, I daresay, thrilling I dislike when a book is labeled as as a certain genre and doesn t deliver especially when the book ends up being sleep inducing instead of heart pounding The First To Say No is one of a string of medical thrillers I have read recently that stands behind its cover blurb It started quickly and unexpectedly, the problems the characters faced immediately evidenced I was slightly appalled, but the rough reality immediately caught my attention Elita s character is introduced in such a way that the reader can t help but wonder about her abstruse past, and Charles C Anderson does a great job leading to the answers no spoilers The same is true with Kate and Margaret complex, realistic and well developed characters that the reader can t help but cheer for The plot definitely encompasses my definition of thriller, particularly in the levels of action and suspense I knew what was coming, especially the ending, but I was still excited to read it The dialogue was also appropriate and believable I really appreciated the medical terminology However, I do find it horrifying that there are places in America where violence escalates to the heights discussed in the book Recommended to adult readers into the medical thriller genre, or those in the mood for some well deserved vengeance Rating On the Run 4.5 5 I received this book from the author Bostick Communications in exchange for an honest and unbiased review

    It is a shocking look into the world of medicine that I never thought existed After reading the book, I decided to do some research and found out that it is actuallycommon than you would think Back to what I thought of the book Sexual abuse against nurses and doctors run rampant in Parkview Hospital, and with the police being of no help at all, tension is high while Romanov and Taylor decide what to do against the local gang, the Plagues The Plagues pretty much run the city even turni It is a shocking look into the world of medicine that I never thought existed After reading the book, I decided to do some research and found out that it is actuallycommon than you would think Back to what I thought of the book Sexual abuse against nurses and doctors run rampant in Parkview Hospital, and with the police being of no help at all, tension is high while Romanov and Taylor decide what to do against the local gang, the Plagues The Plagues pretty much run the city even turning what was once a beautiful park into a place for drug dealers, drug users, and gang members Citizens are afraid to go near the park for fear that they may end up hurt, or worse.But once Taylor comes up with a plan, it is a race against time to rid the city of the gang and help the hospital from closing while not getting caught Will their plan work or will it backfire So next time you re at the hospital, you will see everything in a different light I finished the book about a week or so before Mom ended up in the hospital I saw things a little differently this time

    Shocking, unbelievable, but unfortunately all too true Part of me really wanted to believe that this story is 100% fiction, but unfortunately as a healthcare worker, I see the reality of the abuses of the system, the staff, and the resources of the hospital reflected all too well in this book.I can t say the author is gifted technically, but he still writes an engaging story about dedicated nurses, EMTs, and doctors waging an all out war to protect themselves and their hospital from local gangs Shocking, unbelievable, but unfortunately all too true Part of me really wanted to believe that this story is 100% fiction, but unfortunately as a healthcare worker, I see the reality of the abuses of the system, the staff, and the resources of the hospital reflected all too well in this book.I can t say the author is gifted technically, but he still writes an engaging story about dedicated nurses, EMTs, and doctors waging an all out war to protect themselves and their hospital from local gangs It s a glimpse into the broken American healthcare system and well worth a read
