Lines Of Control by Robert Sperber

Charlotte Westbrook, maverick Inspector General in the Department of Health and Human SerVietnameseces, investigates medical fraud. When three medical students are found murdered on a university hospital campus, she steps outside the bounds of her office to seek the killer. In doing so, she puts both herself and her career in jeopardy in this gripping murder mystery tied to the political and social issues of the day. As Charlotte and her chief counsel investigate the crimes, they discover how lines of control in how medical care is delivered, as well as in the personal lives of the characters, influenced all those involved and the actions they took, actions including murder.

Books about government, medicine and economic crime are dull and boring, aren't they? Wrong! This one is a taut, gripping tale with likable heroes AND villains, that brings an inside look to the dynamics of investigating the medical world. I wouldn't have thought I would like it, but this is really a book worth reading!

Beginning on page one, I thought this was going to be a great read. I wasn't disappointed. It's fast paced, intelligent and sprinkled with enough humor to balance the tension and mystery. The medical setting added an interesting backdrop to what should be a sterile world - not the case. I found myself drawn to the complex plot, the fascinating medical detail well researched and a tribute to the author's credentials. I particularly liked Charlotte Westbrook - she's a believable inspector, and not the police department type, but more the Sherlock Holmes variety. You feel like you are "walking in her shoes". Sperber delivers a engaging and gripping novel on the same level as Paterson, Cornwell and Grisham's earlier work.
