Dead Still (Dr. Annabel Tilson #1) by Barbara Ebel, M.D.

Annabel is excited and optimistic at being finally able to go on clinical rotation. Having spent years in the classroom she can’t wait to start putting the theory into practice. With her father being a well-known and respected neurosurgeon she has some big shoes to fill but she doesn’t expect any special treatment. Special treatment is a far cry from her actual experience and she becomes increasingly deflated with the idea of being a doctor at all and with patience dropping like flies she struggles to keep her composure. It isn’t until her life is on the line that things become a little clearer.

As thrillers go, this is an original and interesting one. A junior doctor fresh out of medical school and at the mercy of a jealous colleague is an unusual narrator, but it worked well. I thought the medical jargon and involvement was just right. I didn’t need a medical dictionary to figure things out and there was enough med-talk to keep it realistic.

Annabel was a likable, intelligent character and Ebel’s style was an interesting mix of thriller, romance, and detective. I look forward to reading more from this author.
