Publisher's Summary

Chicago private eye V.I. Warshawski knows from the start that Consuelo Alvarado's baby is trouble. Consuelo is 16. Diabetic. And the daughter of a friend. When she goes into labor too early, even V. I.'s wild drive to get her to the hospital can't save either Consuelo or her child.

Soon V.I. is investigating possible malpractice at the emergency room - and falling for a doctor who works there. Mixing business and love is always bad medicine, but V.I. finds herself listening to her heart, not her head. And when a brutal murder and the violent destruction of a woman's clinic put her at the center of a very dirty conspiracy, justice may be the only remedy for a hurt that cuts deep...and chills right to the bone.

    "NOT THAT GOOD"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    Stick to just a few storylines and make them less tedious. It took forever to finish this book.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    Not a whole lot was interesting. It starts to get interesting then there's too much melodrama in the reading. Whining more than usua in this onel.


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    The reader gets too melodramatic in parts. This totally detracts from the story. (When you could find the story.) That whole macho chic thing isn't working.


    Did Bitter Medicine inspire you to do anything?

    Yes, rethink buying several books in a series I know nothing about. It was foolish of me. The story kept dragging along to the point that I didn't realize that I started the next book #5 and still didn't know what happened in #4. #5 may be my last from this author and reader.
