She had inherited this cold case when she joined the office eight years ago. Denise Silvers, the victim was the captain of the cheerleading... Continue Reading

A Review of Dr. Vigilante by Alberto Hazan
April 30th, 2022

I’m a huge fan of Dexter the TV series where Dexter Morgan is a blood spatter expert by day and a vigilante by night. So, I was immediately drawn to the premise of this novel where Dr. Robert McKenzie is a highly skilled ER doctor (St. Jude’s Hospital) by day and a vigilante by night.  When we first meet Dr. McKenzie, he bumped heads with the new ER social worker, Sharon Reede. A transplant from Indiana to New York City, Sharon was idealistic and always went above and beyond in getting the services the patients needed (e.g., emergency Medicaid, rehab programs, placement at a shelter, etc.).  Everyone... Continue Reading
