I need to start by saying that I am a big fan of Patterson and especially of the "Women's Murder Club." That said, the errors in the description of the civil trial - a key element in this story - are so awful that it detracts from the quality of the novel.
Simply starting with the hospital's "sh#t happens" defense against what should be wrongful death claims (which they aren't here) sets a stage for a host of other legal and procedural errors. One would think that the authors could have at least hired a lawyer - or a paralegal, or a 1st-year law student ... or even someone who watches freakin' Court TV on a regular basis - to fact check the story.
