Who killed Canada's coolest doctor?
Dr. Hope Sze rolls into Montreal with three simple goals: 1) survive her family medicine residency, 2) try pain au chocolat, 3) go on a date sometime in the next two years.
Turns out there's no shortage of good-looking guys in the gourmet capital of North Americaand a Code Blue in the men's locker room.
On her first emergency room shift, Hope tries to resuscitate a doctor. Not just any doctor, but St. Joseph's smartest, most charming, most beloved M.D.
The police think he accidentally overdosed on insulin. Yet why did he wander in the operating room area in the middle of the night? Either he had untold secrets, or evil lurks in the crumbling corridors of St. Joe's.
When Hope tries to uncover the killer, two men dive in to help her.
The one man with charm to burn has zero alibi.
See Hope eat. See Hope laugh. See Hope run.
Because in the end, her only goal is #1: survive.
Code Blues. Sex, drugs, and doctors.
Written by an emergency physician trained in Montreal.
"Drawing on her personal experiences in the ER in Canada, Yi has created medical thrillers that shine with authenticity and are impossible to put down. Code Blues provides the perfect introduction to a world we often experience, but rarely understand."Kris Nelscott, New York Times bestseller
Intrigued by the author's back story, I decided to read Code Blues, the first book in the Hope Sze Medical Mystery series. Captivated from the start, I found myself enmeshed in a medical drama that kept me up two nights in a row. From Ms. Yi's vivid descriptions, I could easily imagine the dilapidated Montreal hospital and the conflicted characters, who struggle with boundaries and relationships. The murder of a beloved doctor sets in motion a riveting narrative that takes many unexpected twists and turns. I continually second-guessed myself as I attempted to identify the murderer in this well-plotted, character-driven novel.Joanne Guidoccio, author of A Season for Killing Blondes
