It's one of those regular nights in the emergency room of the Ben Taub Hospital. AJ Docker, otherwise known as Doc to his colleagues and friends, is putting in his due and looking forward to the end of his shift when he ends up with a mysterious girl who looks like she has been tortured. Doc does his best but is unable to save her life. Her death leads him to investigate how she ended up in the emergency room in the first place. Little does he know that his inquisitive nature is about to lead him into a world of prostitution and blackmail where human lives have no value in Gary Gerlacher’s Last Patient of the Night.
Gary Gerlacher's easygoing approach to telling the story is evident in every aspect of this riveting crime novel, Last Patient of the Night. He introduces us to his characters using a casual approach when unfolding their origin stories. His depiction of the hospital scene is quite accurate as he goes the extra mile to make this story feel as authentic as possible using precise medical parlance and operating procedures, not to mention some of the weird slang the staff are throwing around. His ability to alternate humor with suspense creates the perfect recipe for a riveting read which is difficult to put down. I especially like the way he casually inserts modern money laundering methods into a deceptively simple story. When it comes to the crime genre, Gerlacher's novel is in a class of its own.
