Working in the ER of a small South Carolina hospital, Dr. Rhea Lynch has seen it all - most of it at 2:00 a.m. But when an interracial couple is rushed in, beaten and bloodied by a mysterious hate group, the patients show signs of a fast-acting pulmonary infection Rhea has never seen before. Within hours, it proves fatal.
Soon, more victims are rushed in, and an epidemic has Dawkins County in an icy grip of terror. As the puzzling illness claims more lives by the hour, Rhea begins to draw some startling conclusions about the nature of the illness...and about its connections to the military.
How could something like this have happened in this peaceful community? Can it be stopped? Every second counts as Rhea desperately tries to fit the pieces together - and soon realizes that she is dealing with something bigger and more terrifying than she could ever imagine.

I like the characters it is an entertaining story and you always want to know what will happen next
I like the detail and the way the other characters and dogs interract
Hard to really think of many - I havent read many Medical dramas. The obvious comparison is Delayed Diagnosis - the first of this series
I am not keen on the style its all a bit too urgent, though others may feel that its appropriate given the storyline. Her attempt at an english accent for the british character was cringeworthy. I usually like the narrators for Audio books but just dont really get on with Carol Hendrickson for some reason. Wont stop me listening to the others in the series though
Yes it was hard to put down once I got going and into the story
well worth a read or listen, I will be listening to the next book in the series soon
Intriguing medical mystery
This is one of those audiobooks that I couldn't put down, as was the case with the previous Gwen Hunter book I happened to come across, Premature Diagnosis. In Prescribeded Danger the narrator injects a lot of atmosphere into her reading of the story, with tension but also humour throughout.
Rhea Lynch, the experienced and excellent ER doctor who is the main character in this series of books, is plucky and intuitive and displays clever dectection skills to get to the root of this mysterious and scary epidemic.which is threatening to overtake the small South Carolina town.
All the characters have their own distinctive accents and give an authentic flavour and colour to the story as it unfolds.
This audiobook gripped me from beginning to end and I do thoroughly recommend it.
My compliments to both the author and the narrator.
