Joe's ongoing romantic involvement with his soon to be ex-wife puzzles some and intrigues the reader. Other characters develop as Joe's investigation begins; some are those who stand to lose both money and credibility should his investigating expose their motives, and some are those who see and appreciate Joe's capacity for putting the puzzle pieces together. Joe himself is then a target for those might have a motive and a means of having killed his young patient three years ago, and a recipient of benevolent assets and support from those who want him to succeed in exposing the guilty.
Family, relationships, community, enmity, greed and murder are all key elements of this engaging novel. Just enough medical detail is shared to keep the reader grounded in the story. I strongly recommend it to all readers of mysteries, and all readers of medical murder.
And it is my fervent wish, as a reader, to know more of what will happen in the lives of these main characters. I see series potential. Mal Practice Apr 30, Denise rated it it was amazing Recommended to Denise by: Full Disclosure: Paul Janson, the author of Mal Practice, gave me a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review, and that in no way affects the review that follows. This Mal Practice was Paul's first novel and, already in it, the characters are so well-drawn and grab you right from the beginning.
The protagonist, pedia Full Disclosure: Paul Janson, the author of Mal Practice, gave me a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review, and that in no way affects the review that follows. The protagonist, pediatrician Joe Nelson, manages to stay very level-headed despite being sued for malpractice, shot at, and accused of murder -- all while he is in the process of getting a divorce. If all of those events sound like they would not be fun subjects, don't be fooled -- Mal Practice is witty, charming, and entertaining as well as a very good mystery with a plot that kept me guessing til the end.
The other characters play opposite Joe really well, and Mr. Janson writes exceptionally good dialogue. This is another winner, and I am looking forward now to reading Scratch next -- his YA novel about a pet cat with magical powers! Thank you, Paul, and keep writing!
May 07, Maggie Galen rated it it was amazing. I would recommend this book to anyone interested in a good, page-turning, suspenseful novel. Feb 16, Lorrie rated it really liked it. I won this book in a Goodreads giveaway. The mark of a good mystery is the "who done it" factor that keeps the reader guessing. This book had me guessing to the end. It's a very good read. Dec 15, Janice Spina rated it it was amazing Shelves: books-reviewed , e-books. When writing a novel - writing what you know is the best way to go.
This author has done just that. He is a doctor working in a mining town in an ED, emergency room. The pace of Mal Practice is swift and action filled with plenty of twists and turns and surprises. It all begins when a four-year-old little girl dies in an emergency room supposedly from an overdose of medication that is supposed to save her life. Only one person, Dr. Joe Nelson, who treated the child, could be responsible or so it When writing a novel - writing what you know is the best way to go.
Joe Nelson, who treated the child, could be responsible or so it seems. When Dr. Nelson goes on trial for this death strange things come to fold and nothing is what it seems. Even his lawyer's trust is questionable. His wife, soon to be ex, comes to his aid along with a Sergeant Moore from the police department who believe in his innocence. There are many players in this novel, some whom can be trusted, others not so much.
The characters are well defined and interesting and the author makes you care about them. A thoroughly enjoyable and quick read which I could not put down.
I look forward to more exciting novels from this talented author. May 07, Diane rated it liked it. Medicine mystery and murder. Paul Janson's first novel is a quick read. I recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a good mystery.
View 1 comment. Mar 18, Eager Reader rated it really liked it. I really enjoyed this book. The characters were people any one can relate to, the story line solid and interesting, and the mystery engaging right up to the end. The action moves between hospital and courtroom and I admit I've never been a fan of medical mysteries but the characters in this one are o likable that the story held my interest.
Its a quick red. I'd recommend it. Doug MacGillvary rated it it was ok May 14, Kathleen D. Brown rated it really liked it Sep 19, Agnes Case rated it it was amazing Aug 30, Lisa Akoury-Ross rated it it was amazing Jul 09, Robert Yeates. Cat Black Dr. Brian Dr. Blake Downs Dr.

He was stopped only after the combined involvement of the Dallas County district attorney, a lawyer, a journalist, and the state medical board—heroic efforts initiated by Henderson and Dr.
Randall Kirby. Duntsch is now serving a life sentence in prison. His attorney has filed an appeal; the case is pending. On the one hand, Beil and Wondery have done something important: detailed a horrifying story that directly affects public health and safety. Both shows—in their lurid titles, logos, ads, and beyond—stress salesmanship, which makes the public service implicitly hard to trust.
But the public does seem thrilled: their success attests to that. David Remnick speaks with Redford about playing another outlaw onscreen, and why he may not be ready for retirement from film just yet. Recommended Stories.
