When San Francesco travel nurse Allison Jamison becomes concerned with the surgical failings of medical colleague Dr. Gary Tamarino, she is not prepared for the disastrous outcome. Fortunately, Allison is the creator and owner of Critical Cover-Up, a private business that investigates the faulty actions of medical professionals. Dr. T. is famous for his God Complex and cavalier attitude toward others as well as a monstrous ego, but his credentials are impeccable as a cardiothoracic surgeon. Or at least that is the public opinion until Dr. T loses two patients in one week to excessive post-surgery bleeding. Initially, Dr. T. finds an alibi in a vision problem and is relieved to “fix” the issue with medication, temporarily assuaging Allison’s concerns. But when Mark Derning, a Cover-Up employed private investigator discovers an even darker side to Gary Tamarino, Allison’s fears are validated.

Filled with fascinating medical terminology and procedure descriptions, A Cure for Deceit by Margie Miklas is a disturbing, fast-paced novel that plants unfortunate suspicion in the medical world. For conspiracy theorists, this is the perfect conversation starter. As a romance grows between main characters Allison and Mark, much needed reading tension is sporadically placed to balance a mix of suspense and surprise. Author Margie Miklas successfully uses her knowledge of the medical profession to give adequate reality to this story. A nicely placed balance of good and evil between medical partners Tamarino and Dr. Kumar Chanrami furthers the believability of A Cure for Deceit.
