Margie Miklas is an award-winning author, recently retired critical care nurse, social media manager, travel blogger, and a contributing writer to La Gazzetta Italiana. Her book “Critical Cover-Up” hit the market in September 2017 and is receiving great reviews on Amazon. Allison Jamison abandoned a lucrative real estate career to become a nurse and be able to impact others’ lives during their most vulnerable times.
When she accepts a job in a critical care unit at a prominent Florida hospital, corruptive practices threaten to shatter her illusions. An element of evil lurks just beneath the surface and around corners in a place typically known for saving lives. The murder of a popular surgeon, a fatal mistake in a critical care unit and anonymous threats challenge Allison’s idealistic ambitions. She finds herself caught up in a healthcare system that prioritizes profit over ethics and patient safety. Stifled by hospital politics, she must find a way to expose the wrongdoers, even if it means risking her job and maybe even her life. The twists and turns in “Critical Cover-Up” keep the reader wanting more. The book also offers a sneak peek into a hospital’s critical care unit amongst its murderous and evil plot.
It is clear the author used her expertise in critical care nursing to allow readers a level of insight we may never have had the opportunity to explore while still baiting us with the fictional storyline.
lthough the title eludes that a murderous cover-up is the subject material of the novel, it’s the cover-up of the hospital’s corruptive practices that takes precedent. If you enjoy medical murder mysteries, this is the book for you.
