Gwen Hunter - Prescribed Danger
It gets no better than this! --Detra
Dr. Rhea Lynch was working in an ER of a small South Carolina hospital
when an interracial couple was rushed in. They had been beaten,
blooded, and forcibly tattooed by a mysterious hate group. They were
the first of a series of patients who had been infected with a new
Rhea, along with her almost boyfriend and local cop named Mark Stafford,
became up to their eyebrows in officers from the Federal Bureau of
Investigations (FBI), the Naval Intelligence Service (NIS), Patriot
groups, and blood-sucking media, as they fight to figure out what was
going on and save lives!
It doesn't take long to figure out that they are dealing with something
far bigger and more terrifying than they could ever imagine!
***** If you read Delayed Diagnosis then there is no doubt in my
mind you will buy this book the moment you see the name Gwen Hunter on the
cover! If you have not read it, then do yourself a favor and
purchase it at the same time you buy this one! Dr. Rhea-Rhea is the
most sassy, intelligent, stubborn, and tenacious woman I have ever
met! And I love her!
Author, Gwen Hunter, has succeeded in creating a realistic little town and
filling it with characters that readers can easily come to know and
love. Here is a book for your "Keeper" shelf and an author
that, I have no doubt, will quickly become a well known name! BRAVA!

PRESCRIBED DANGER -
Dawkins County, South Carolina - Present Day
Emergency room doctor Rhea Lynch is on duty during a horrendous storm
that has caused flooding and intermittent power outages. When an
ambulance delivers two patients who had been tortured and kidnapped,
things quickly go from bad to worse. One of the victims is six
months pregnant and in the late stages of labor. Rhea desperately tries
to save the mother, but the baby is stillborn. The mother seems to be
recovering; however, in just a very few hours the mother suddenly dies
from what appears at first glance to be pneumonia. When her husband also
shows signs of the illness, and other patients are brought in, Rhea
begins to doubt that this is a simple case of pneumonia. Compounding the
strange illness is the rash of hate crimes being committed by an unknown
group. As one patient after another quickly succumbs to the illness,
Rhea begins to suspect that this is no ordinary virus.
PRESCRIBED DANGER is a fast moving, highly intense novel. Biological
warfare, domestic terrorism, racially motivated religious hate groups;
each and every aspect of PRESCRIBED DANGER could have been pulled from
today's headlines. The emotion is powerful and the action intense. Ms.
Hunter has gone to great pains to outline the steps taken by the medical
profession to isolate and treat viral and bacterial infection without
using language that is foreign to non-medical people. In addition to the
outstanding plot and narrative, Ms. Hunter has created a cast of
interesting characters. The dialogue is concise and believable, and the
interaction between the characters is superbly portrayed. PRESCRIBED
DANGER is told in the first person from the perspective of Dr. Lynch,
and while I don't usually care for first person narrative, in this
instance, it made the action more immediate and the tension more
intense. The reader is privy only to Dr. Lynch's thoughts and so
muddles through with her as she races to find answers before more people
PRESCRIBED DANGER is the second book to feature Dr. Rhea Lynch, and
while it's not necessary to read the first book, DELAYED DIAGNOSIS, in
order to enjoy this one, I do feel there are important things about the
recurring characters I missed by not having read it. However, even
though I haven't read the previous novel, I fully enjoyed PRESCRIBED
DANGER and recommend it to fans of suspense thrillers. Romance
fans should be made aware that, while there is a budding romance or two
in the novel, nothing is resolved between the romantic couples, and the
focus is not on the romantic aspects of the story but on the suspense.
This was my first book by Ms. Hunter, but it most certainly won't
be my last. I look forward to reading the previous and future novels
about Dr. Rhea Lynch.

Dr. Rhea Lynch, who was introduced in Delayed Diagnosis, is
back. The hard-working ER doctor is still putting in long hours at
the small South Carolina hospital where she swears she's seen it all.
Then one night everything changes. First is the interracial
couple, beaten and held captive for several days, victims of a hate
crime. While caring for their injuries, Rhea discovers an unusual
illness. The wife shows signs of a pulmonary infection that seems to
advance at lightening speed and then, within hours, she's dead.
Almost immediately her husband begins showing the same symptoms, and
others begin arriving at the ER with this mysterious illness.
Rhea is thrust into a strange world of religious extremist, hate
groups, and the military, all in the hopes of uncovering the cause of the
now steadily increasing deaths at her hospital. Things are pointing
to germ warfare, but who is responsible and why?
Dr. Rhea is becoming an old friend, and Ms. Hunter assures
readers they'll see more of this fascinating medical detective. With
a wonderful sense of detail, and enough twists and turns to keep the pages
flying, Ms. Hunter leaves you yearning for more.
