Viets brings readers a treat with a new series featuring coroner's investigator Angela Richman, who lives in a wealthy St. Louis suburb in a house inherited from her parents, who were once servants in the community. While working an accident scene, Angela experiences a severe headache and ends up in the emergency room. Dr. Porter Gravois, a well-connected neurologist, sends her home with orders for a PET scan the next morning, but a series of strokes almost kills her. Fortunately, a brilliant neurosurgeon from the wrong side of the tracks, Dr. Jeb Travis Tritt, saves her life and her brain. As Angela works to recover from her strokes, she overhears the two physicians quarreling viciously. When Dr. Gravois keels over in the hospital cafeteria, everyone accuses Dr. Tritt of poisoning him. Angela is sure Tritt is innocent and wants to help him, but her condition and Dr. Gravois' status are major obstacles. Angela must cope with sexist and incompetent detectives, corrupt hospital administrators, and local snobs as she looks for clues. Viets, a stroke survivor herself, builds her unusual premise into a compelling thriller that moves quickly and builds suspense steadily. Copyright 2014 Booklist Reviews.
