What better plan than to go with her fiancé, travel nurse Harry Lucke, on one of his assignments … an adventure in Northern Nevada’s gold country!
In this third outing for Gina (SIN & BONE and BONE DRY), her ever-present curiosity draws her and Harry into the midst of an illegal scheme to manipulate test results for an experimental drug to cure Alzheimer’s.
On the first day, driving up a long, isolated dirt road, they’re surrounded by ominous, identical, sentry-like boulders that cordon off the approach to their new workplace: Comstock Medical Auxiliary Campus.
When they finally arrive at the facility … and its empty parking lot … Gina’s eye starts one of its warning alert twitches—there are iron bars across all the second-story windows, and no windows at all on the first level.
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. In Gina Mazzio and Harry Lucke, the Lambs have created a tenacious and engaging duo who are worth rooting for. We look forward to reading more abut this terrific couple. Highly recommended. – Sheldon Siegel, NYT best selling author of “Perfect Alibi.”
RN Gina Mazzio is back! So is her curiosity … so is her indomitable strength in the face of danger … so is her infinite compassion for her patients … and so is her stubborn determination to achieve justice. And so, too, is the stalwart rock and roll of her life, fiancé Harry Lucke. – The Wordsmith.
The Lambs have done it again! They grab you b the lapels and yank you into the book and you, blissfully, can’t get away until the last page! – Artist Polly K. Podolsky.
