Chaos at Crescent City Medical Center (Alexandra Destephano Book 1)

$0.99

It's Mardi Gras season in post-Katrina New Orleans. Thousands of tourists have flocked to the city, paralyzed traffic and jammed the French Quarter with drunken crowds and garbage. City officials expect record crowds and the biggest boost to the Crescent City economy since the big storm. Alexandra Lee Destephano, legal counsel for Crescent City Medical Center, is anticipating her third Mardi Gras season and her date with dashing art historian Mitch Landry to the biggest Mardi Gras Ball in New Orleans. Things change. Alex is stat-paged to the hospital and learns from her boss and former husband, Dr. Robert Bonnet, that the wife of the Governor of Louisiana has been found unconscious and covered in blood in her hospital room. To make matters worse, patients have left the hospital against medical advice, and staff have refused to work. By the end of the day, the Ball is the last thing on Alex's mind

Alexandra Destephano is hospital lawyer living in New Orleans who struggles, like all of us, to find her way. Life is tough. She’s been hurt in love, deserted in life and left bruised and vulnerable. Violence in her hospital, terror in the streets and threats against her life have panicked her. Will she make it? And, if so, at what cost?

Editorial Reviews

Judith Lucci’s medical thrillers lay bare the raw, beating heart of New Orleans! They are rugged, explosive and expose the cruel world in which we live.
Eric Gates, Thriller Writer Outsourced and the Cull Series

Kirkus Reviews:

There’s no lack of action in this fast-paced thriller, including a violent attack at a creepy late-night voodoo ritual … An edge-of-your-seat thriller anchored by a likable, engaging heroine.

Editorial Review

Gripping crime investigation, colorful characters, action-packed, amazing medical fiction. Lucci’s novels are winners with hot topics that include terrorism, viral outbreaks and mental health.
Christoph Fischer, Author




Its Mardi Gras season in post-Katrina New Orleans. Thousands of tourists have flocked to the city, paralyzing traffic and jamming the French Quarter with drunken crowds and garbage.

To make matters worse, patients are leaving CCMC against medical advice and staff are refusing to work creating crisis and chaos in the changing Obamacare hospital environment. By the end of the day, the Endymion Ball is the last thing on Alex's mind!

I'm a really nice person, a registered nurse and college professor who writes really scary books! I am the author of the Alexandra Desephano Medical Thriller series set in The Big Easy and the Michaela McPherson Crime series set in Richmond, Va. The medical thrillers are based on my own personal experiences with working in and managing large health care organizations. My crime thrillers, well, I just kinda make the up and it sort of scares me that these ideas jump into my head!

I live in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia in the USA with my family, and five, yes five dogs I love dearly. In my Michaela McPherson series, police dog Angel is often the protagonist. I love to communicate with my readers at judithlucciwrites.com. Drop me a line anytime!

Blessings and Best wishes,

Judith
