When Dr. Sarah Whitley entered the doors of the medical school, she thought the dream she had worked so hard for had finally come true. She had attained her first position as an Assistant Professor of Anatomy in a prestigious medical school in a uniquely historic city. Instead, what she found was the beginning of a nightmare that would change her life in ways she never imagined.
She had always looked up to the professors who had taught her throughout her education. They were ‘all knowing’; they were never wrong; and they were well respected professionals – everything she aspired to be. It didn’t take her long to discover that her new faculty colleagues were flawed human beings, driven by greed, ambition, and lust. But they all had one thing in common – fear. Fear of the powerful and ruthless, Dr. Roberts, the Head of the Department of Anatomy.
While all Sarah wants is to concentrate all her efforts on becoming an effective lecturer and anatomy lab instructor, she inadvertently discovers the secrets hidden behind the closed doors of the offices and research labs of her fellow faculty – from the illicit affair between two scientists, to the sexual predator masquerading under the guise of a well-funded researcher, to the manipulative and double-crossing Department Head.
When compelled by Dr. Roberts to spend more time in the morgue, assisting with the embalming and preparation of the cadavers to be used in the medical school Gross Anatomy course, Sarah sees things that she shouldn’t see. But asking questions could be dangerous...
The setting around the medical school and the descriptions of the running, teaching and feelings of the characters are first rate. The problems and issues they face in their every day routine is true to life which adds to the make up and credibility of the storyline. Being based around a medical school the terms used are always explained making for an easy read. The characters traits and characteristics are brilliantly described and you will be able to say that each and every one of them will remind you of someone in your own workplace.
A very enjoyable read which builds upto an excellent twist leading to a climatic end. The author has used her experience and knowledge from her working life which is evident in the storyline to produce a great work of fiction.
