    excellent medical chiller

    Neurosurgeon Dr. Tyler Matthews learns that his boss cheated Medicare so he reports it. Not long afterward DEA Agent Dillon searches his locker and finds drugs there. His lawyer Mary McGuire suggests he accepts the government¿s ¿kind¿ offer though he insists he is being framed over his whistle blowing if he refuses he will lose in court and never practice medicine again. He has already lost his wife Nancy so he reluctantly agrees. Tyler obtains work at the Maynard Medical Center in Seattle where a computerized record keeping system is being tested that is expected to dramatically reduce the annual 44000 to 98000 medical errors. When his patient dies, Tyler conducts a root analysis that leads him to believe the record system is flawed and caused the death he reports his findings. He is threatened with the end of his practice as millions are at stake based on a committee¿s findings of how well the database performed. While other whistle-blowers have died and Nancy is threatened, the FBI, international terrorists, and members of the government-industrial health complex seek him. He trusts no one after San Francisco and with the Patriot Act, they able to bury him. --- This chiller is not for the faint of heart as readers will be stunned by the avarice antics of those who allegedly protect the public health. The story line is action-packed from the moment the DEA disillusioned Tyler and never slows down as the hero feels déjà vu all over again. Interestingly weaving in real world stats such as the eighth most common deaths in America is medical mistakes Dr. Allen Wyler's debut is as tense a medical thriller as there is because the scary supporting stats are real. Six Sigma please. --- Harriet Klausner

    Another Great Medical Thriller by Allen Wyler

    Tyler Mathews is a doctor that loses his license to practice medicine in the state of California because of prescription drug use. He also loses his wife and his marriage. He is just now picking up the pieces and working at a hospital in Washington. His ex-wife has contacted him about possibly getting back together and things are looking up at work.

    Then an emergency room patient dies from an overdose of insulin, Tyler has a patent that comes in and gets an overdose and dies a horribly, and other events start happening. The strange thing is that the new computer system is acting odd. Although the information is being entered correctly, it looks like someone has hacked into the system and changed it causing improper diagnosis, dosage, and treatment. Clearly there is something wrong with the new Med-InDx.

    When Tyler lost his license in California, he had stumbled over the hospital stealing millions from Medicare. When he brought that to the light, they got rid of him with the drug charge. Because of that history, he is asked to look into the Med InDx. This is going to be hard to do when once again he is framed for drug use. But that is the easy part, now someone wants to silence his findings for good.

    This is another great story from Allen Wyler. Initially I couldn’t careless with Tyler. He is caught doing drugs, loses everything, and then when he is starting we start with him abusing Ambien. But things look fishy when he loses his patient and it’s because of the dose being wrong in the computer system, I felt for him. The more I got into the story I felt for him. He was just trying to do the right thing and getting grief for it. I loved all the action with the Med InDx program. It’s creepy to think that doctors now use the electronic devices to help with their jobs and the possible outcomes of software issues and such.

    This is a great medical thriller. If you have not read any of Allen Wyler’s other books, this would be a great one to start with. He is one author that you don’t want to miss.

    I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review.

    Great story line. Exciting beginning to end.

    Editing was terrible... missing words,misspellings, words out of order. Several instances of pages not turning. Frustrating, to say the least. Less than professional.
