Book Review: A Monster Chase

Get it here: A Monster Chase

This book was a bit different, part fiction and part biographical is how I took it. The main character is Anna, a writer in the Healthcare System who is a patient of Dr. Helen Quaile and also does some editing work for her. Through the book Anna reflects on their relation ship as doctor and patient and when she finds out that Dr. Quaile’s license is revoked ends up researching the legal battle, courts, and all.
Dr. Quaile has this vision of how a practice should be run, but she is barely hanging on, often using her own paychecks to cover labor costs and other expenses. Sadly she falls victim of an overzealous prosecutor who is trying to make a name for himself.

This was a interesting read, very unique in its set up, using many flashbacks to cover and clarify points or data herein. The parts with the court transcripts took some getting used to but in the end it enriched the story, making me feel like I was sitting in the courtroom. A very interesting and thought-provoking read about our Healthcare system and how it treats the individual doctors (not those part of a hospital). I would recommend this book any day.
