Publisher's Summary

Save the life. Save the life...This is the mantra repeated by Dr. Rae Duprey, Berkeley Hills Hosptial's premier obstetrician, who's haunted by the searing memory of her own mother's death in the back of an ambulance and driven by a passion to save the lives of the women and babies in her care. But when her candidacy for the chairmanship of Berkeley Hills' prestigious obstetrics department is derailed by a series of "bad baby" cases emanating from the politically sensitive birth center across the street, Rae is determined to uncover the truth about why these seemingly routine deliveries are going fatally haywire.

As her investigation unleashes a firestorm of resistance from all sides, Rae discovers that in the ruthlessly competitive atmoshpere of today's helath-care system, everyone has a hidden agenda...As the hair-raising emergencies continue unabated, she begins to suspect the unthinkable: a sinister plan of medical sabotage, masterminded by a killer who is hardly a stranger to Berkeley Hills Hospital....

Combining suspense, utterly authentic characters, and the most riveting medical emergency scenes to be found anywhere, The Silent Cradle takes the medical thriller into compelling new territory. With unique insight into the drama and politics of medicine today, Margaret Cuthbert's talents make for a memorable debut.

    Story
    "Would NOT buy this again..."

    Perhaps the unabridged version would have possessed some depth; this version was predictable, and only mildly entertaining. Being in the medical field myself, I love medical mysteries; while the details were accurate enough to pacify me, the storyline lacked a lot.

    Story
    "great read"
    Would you listen to Silent Cradle again? Why?

    it was very good and remarkably complex for such a short story. i never imagined that medical politics could be so action packed or even have a good mystery but this story delivers both and there are several twists and turns along the way i must say i enjoyed this this is one of the few in my collection i would listen to again.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    ray was my favourite charricter and she was strong independent clever and had a heart of gold in this story she constantly put others before herself everytime.


    What does Tonya Pinkins bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    she made ray seem so human and real and she made me enjoy the story.
