Overview

Dr. Rhea Lynch left a suffocating life in Charleston to practice medicine in the ER of a small South Carolina hospital. Now Dawkins County is her home, a place that holds the only real family she's ever known.

But when she returns from vacation, Rhea is shocked to discover her best friend, Marisa, near death and unable to communicate. The official diagnosis: a paralyzing stroke. Despite the family's attempts to keep her away, Rhea is determined to make her own diagnosis. In an illicit examination, a hideous truth is revealed.

Then a man is brought into her ER with similar symptoms. And then another. Each one of her patients has been willfully, brutally, silenced in a most inhuman way.

Desperate to find answers, Rhea must determine who she can trust, as a powerful conspiracy threatens the people she loves — and perhaps the entire community.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
A definite page-turner.
Huntress Book Reviews - Detra Fitch
Move over Robin Cook and Echo Heron! I had to stop reading a few times to calm myself down! My mother would call this exciting novel a WOO-WOO! (“Wow” and “Lu-Lu” mixed.) You will not be able to turn the pages fast enough. Here is a novel that I highly recommend to everyone! A KEEPER!
The Mystery Reader - Thea Davis
Hunter does everything right in this novel. Her pacing is great, scenes shift seamlessly, dialogue is crisp, often humorous and always to the point. Her character definition is complex and her plot development is logical.
Romantic Times - Debbie Richardson
Hunter’s exciting tale, told in first person, pulls readers into a strong woman’s fight for friendship. Her heroine is well developed and inspirational—not in her perfection, but in fighting through her weaknesses.
Spartanburg Herald-Journal - Ann Patterson
I like Hunter’s new style. I know she’s not really a doctor, she just writes about one. But after reading Delayed Diagnosis, I think I’ll list her as my primary care physician with my insurance company.

    superb for those who love medical thrillers

    This book has it all - suspence, romance, action. It's a long book but I was able to read it very quickly, as it's well written and full of twists and turns.

    exciting medical thriller

    Mira, Jun 2001, $5.99, 384 pp. ISBN: 1551668033 After being on vacation for a week, ER Doctor Rhea Lynch returns home to learn her best friend Marisa Braswell suffered a sever stroke. However, instead of being at the hospital, Marisa¿s husband, Dr. Stephen Braswell, head of ER, has kept her at their home and will not allow any visitors. Rhea cannot fathom why Stephen is keeping his spouse out of the hospital and how such a healthy young woman like Marisa could have suffered such a debilitating illness. <P>Rhea is unable to ignore her friend¿s plight. She sneaks into the Braswell home, but what she sees horrifies her as a comatose Marisa drips a strange liquid from her nasal passages. Her quick exam fails to verify Stephen¿s diagnosis. Later that same day, a patient enters ER with similar if not the identical symptoms as Marisa has. Rhea begins to investigate what is happening to her adopted small South Carolina town though someone will go to any lengths to insure she fails including murder. <P>DELAYED DIAGNOSIS is an exciting medical thriller that centers on the theme of friendship and how far a person will go in the name of that friendship. The heroine is a person will risk everything for a friend. The intrepid Rhea is a flawed person whose weaknesses turn into strengths. She goes the extra mile to help her best friend over the objection of Marisa¿s spouse, who is the patient¿s doctor and Rhea¿s boss. Though the reason for the conspiracy seems thin, readers will fully enjoy this action-packed medical drama because Rhea, who tells much of the tale, hooks the audience. <P>Harriet Klausner
