Master of suspense Eileen Dreyer delivers another heart-hammering novel of psychological terror in which a tough-talking trauma nurse investigates a rash of mysterious hospital deaths and discovers a shocking conspiracy of high-level corruption and murder.

The bodies keep piling up in Memorial Medical Center's morgue, and trauma nurse Timmie Parker wants to know why. Old age just doesn't seem enough to explain the suspiciously large number of deaths, especially since many victims are from Restcrest, the hospital's highly touted senior-care and research facility. Searching for answer, Timmie gets caught in a tangled mystery that involves not only her coworkers but also the welfare of her father, Restcrest's newest patient. Stymied by the fact that she's the only one in the hospital fighting to find out the truth, she turns to Daniel Murphy, a Pulitzer Prize-winning reporter with a bad case of burnout. Together they embark on an investigation that could send Murphy soaring to the top of his profession -- and cost Timmie not only her job, but also her life.

Filled with the gripping emergency room details that could only come from a true medical profession insider, Brain Dead is a white-knuckle thriller guaranteed to keep readers spellbound until the very last page.

"Eileen Dreyer makes you hold your breath, laugh out loud, and fear any trip to the hospital". -- Tami Hoag, author of A Thin Dark Line
