Publisher's Summary

Dr. Rhea Lynch left a suffocating life in Charleston to practice medicine in the ER of a small South Carolina Hospital. Now, Dawkins County is her home, a place that holds the only real family she's ever known.
But when she returns from vacation, Rhea is shocked to discover that her best friend, Marisa, is near death and unable to communicate. The official diagnosis: a paralyzing stroke. Despite the family's attempts to keep her away, Rhea is determined to make her own diagnosis.
In a surreptitious examination, a hideous truth is revealed. Then a man is brought into her ER with similar symptoms. And then another. Each one of her patients has been willfully, brutally, silenced in a most inhuman way. Desperate to find answers, Rhea must determine who she can trust, as a powerful conspiracy threatens the people she loves - and perhaps the entire community.


Audible Editor Reviews

All the professional calm that Dr. Rhea Lynch learned in medical school deserts her when her closest friend suffers what appears to be a catastrophic stroke. Soon, Dr. Lynch learns that the stroke is more mysterious than it appears, especially when other patients start coming in to the ER of her small South Carolina hospital with all the same symptoms. Will she be able to find the real culprit in time? This is a fast-paced medical mystery skillfully narrated by performer Carol Hendrickson, who does an excellent and enjoyable South Carolina accent. Listeners who love feisty female heroines, medical mysteries, and tightly-plotted thrillers will enjoy this first installment of the Rhea Lynch series.

First story in an interesting series

If you could sum up Delayed Diagnosis in three words, what would they be?

Entertaining listening

Any additional comments?

Several years ago I read the second and third books in this series but never got hold of the first and so when I found it on audible I bought it and thoroughly enjoyed it. Parts stretch credulity a bit but it was very entertaining and I went on to buy the rest of the series. If you like family stories with a mystery turn based round a medical theme you will enjoy this.

Good entertaining novel

Would you listen to Delayed Diagnosis again? Why?

Probably would listen to the book again I thought it was quite an interesting story and quite gripping towards the end. First of a series and I am now half way through the second despite the narrator see below

What was one of the most memorable moments of Delayed Diagnosis?

Hard to say without giving too much away but the whole book was a bit different I don't normally read medical detective stories but the detail is quite believable I am not medically qualified though so a real medical person might disagree

How could the performance have been better?

Yes I didn't like the narration at all which is a shame far too urgent I don't think the voice fitted the character at all.

Any additional comments?

Good introduction to a series I will be listening to the others
