"ENGROSSING ([An] intriguing combination of nurse and detective story." --Library Journal With a sharp eye and even sharper pen, Echo Heron stunned the world with her gritty, passionate, brutally honest account of a nurse's daily life in her national bestseller, Intensive Care. Now she turns her humor, honesty and compassion to a gripping story of a nurse facing burnout. Cat Richardson is battle weary and disillusioned. With a heart--and a mouth--as big as her 12EEE shoes, she's continually bucking a system choked by hospital politics, egomaniacal doctors, frustrated co-workers. After twenty-five-hour days battling chaos, and caring for patients who desperately need her, Cat is losing both patience and her mind. Then an intriguing police detective investigating the brutal beating of a celebrated artist breathes new life into her frantic, loveless existence, and a special patient nurtures her fading spirit...even as danger strikes perilously close to home (.
