It’s Mines, madness, and murder!

“Gina Mazzio and Harry Lucke are a dynamic pair of nurses who get more than they bargained for. Within a few hours of their arrival at a rehab facility for Alzheimer’s patients, they realize that the patients aren’t getting better. And some are disappearing. Deftly plotted and artfully executed, BONE PIT is a compelling read that provides a shocking look at the world of contemporary medicine and big pharma. Highly recommended.
