    You have GOT to read this one!

    Nurse Maggie O'Brien has a very active life! She is an Emergency Department nurse at Blymore Memorial Hospital, a medic on a SWAT team, and the daughter of the somewhat notorious police officer named Thomas "Tommy" O'Brien. .............. When she finds evidence that someone close to her, perhaps a team member or co-worker, could be dispensing their own type of justice, she is torn between loyalty and what is right. It seemed as though the bad scum of St. Louis that come to the ER ends up dead. It also looks as though it has been going on for quite some time. Maggie knew that if she looked for signs of possible murder of the bad guys that many of her co-workers would consider it betrayal. She would lose many friends. However, when Maggie found out some innocent people were also dying, she could not stand by and do nothing. As people in the county and her colleagues turn against Maggie, she continues her search for proof of multiple murders. As people get nervous about her investigation, Maggie begins being framed. .............. Reporter Susan Jacobsmeyer has been assigned to do an article or series on Maggie's life. Her career skyrocketed with a single photo shot of Maggie, as a SWAT member, clutching a burned boy as she tries to save his life. When patients that Maggie tend to begin dropping like flies, or cicadas, she smells front page material. The two team up to hunt for answers. Their only real clues had come from a paranoid schizophrenic patient, Montana Bob, just before he died. ............. ***** This author is awesome! Author Eileen Dreyer is a nurse herself. To make this novel as realistic as possible, she actually trained (not just observed) with some of the SWAT teams and firefighters in her area. ........... I just do not find books as great as this one often and I cannot recommend it highly enough! You do not have to be in the police or medical professions to find yourself holding your breath and sitting on the edge of your seat as you quickly read to see what happens next! WITH A VENGEANCE is a roller coaster ride that hooks its readers on page one and refuses to let go! *****

    first rate action packed medical thriller

    The city of St. Louis and its County join forces to form a first rate SWAT Team that services the region. The only person on the group who doesn¿t carry a gun is the medic Maggie O¿ Brien. Maggie and her team are called in to break up a hostage situation with the victim being Maggie¿s boyfriend Sean Delaney and the perpetrator is a paranoid schizophrenic Montana Bob, a former FBI agent. She talks Montana Bob down but he suddenly dies in the hospital. Maggie wonders if somebody killed him after he told her the names of three other people. When she seeks the trio, she learns that the two gangbangers and the pediophile also died in her hospital where she works as a trauma nurse. Maggie starts collecting evidence involving a silent conspiracy between people she knows in the hospital and the police department. She just has to figure out where to deliver her information to before she is killed or framed for murder. It has been too many years since a crime thriller from Eileen Dreyer was released, but WITH A VENGEANCE is well worth the wait. The heroine is an admirable person with a subtle sense of humor who lives in perpetual crisis mode that would break many people, but she thrives on it. Her decision to root out the perpetrators knowing she will be shunned by her peers or killed is courageous but she still willingly pays the price. This is a first rate action packed medical thriller on a par with Robin Cook. Harriet Klausner
