Publisher's Summary

Death at Brier Hospital is routine and provides the perfect opportunity to murder and get away with it. Jacob Weizman, a physician, and his wife, Lola, a psychotherapist, are Holocaust survivors and need no proof of evil in this world. Jacob and Lola are unique protagonists. They're octogenarians who take the fear out of getting old. Their intelligence, competence, humor, and sense of history make them appealing in a world that too often disdains the aged. After 55 years practicing medicine, Jacob is disappointed, but not surprised by several patients' deaths, even the unexpected ones. Soon, however, it becomes clear that a killer is stalking the halls of Brier Hospital targeting Jacob's patients. While Jacob has made enemies over the years, he finds it inconceivable that anyone would murder his patients for revenge. The killings mount even as the hospital and police increase security and pursue a vigorous investigation. Finally, unsatisfied with surrogates, the killer targets Jacob.

Unwanted visitors!

There’s a killer loose in Briar Hospital. Several of Briar Hospital’s patients, specifically Dr. Weizman’s patients, are turning up dead for no obvious reason. Jacob Weizman has dealt with ageism, or discrimination on the grounds of one's age, for some time but it’s reaching critical mass with the recent deaths. The deaths affect both hospital staff and relatives alike. A young, pretty doctor, Zoey Spelling has joined Jacob’s staff at the request of an old friend and colleague. Zoey seems to be bright, well-trained, and helpful, but is she? We’re treated to another tense and interesting account of today’s hospitals. I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

Much better than first book

The first book by this author was poorly written, and the narration was terrible. This book has more substance, and I was relieved that it wasn't the same narrator. There were some times when this narrator's voice was overdone (particularly with the "old man" doctor), but overall it was OK. The story was interesting and kept my attention. The editing was apparently not the best...there were changes in tense and person that were sometimes very confusing. But, it was an interesting topic when you got down to the revelation of who was doing the murders and why. I will watch for more from this author to see how he progresses.

Wonderfully told story

Great story with interesting characters that captured my attention. The narrator did a great job with the different voices, my favorites were Jacob & Lola!
