ER nurse Calvert (the Crisis Team series) intertwines a mob drama with the frenzy of a hospital emergency room in this explosive page-turner. Sloane Ferrell, a fiercely private new ER nurse at Hope Hospital in Los Angeles, Calif., is trying to bury her past mistakes by taking a job in a new city. As Sloane exits Hope one afternoon, a pink-haired young woman is pulled, allegedly against her will, into a car. Trusting her instincts, Sloane yanks her from the perpetrator and invites the woman to a diner, where she notices a strange tattoo: property of...$. Sloane is unable to get much information from the young woman, but believes she is in over her head with the local mob. The original incident is also witnessed by Micah Prescott, the hospitals marketing director, and his friend Coop, a local reporter and camera man, who captures the scene. Micah, impressed by Sloanes actions rescuing the girl as well as by her beauty, decides that Sloane could make a perfect model for his billboard campaign to enhance the hospitals sagging reputation. But when he approaches Sloane, she thwarts his plans, even threatening to go to HR if he doesnt leave her be. As she pushes him away, his interest only grows, and he becomes convinced of her ability to lift the unpopular hospital. Calvert adeptly intertwines drama, passion, hope, and her medical expertise to deliver a suspenseful tale that will leave readers guessing until the end. (Feb.)
