BOOK REVIEW: NIP, TUCK, DEAD
How far will a friend go to help you?
Pauline Sokol is an ex-nurse who is now working as an insurance fraud investigator. Her boss, Fabio, handed Pauline a folder, which would be her fifth case. It seems that one of his clients has seen an increase in plastic surgery submissions from one clinic - surgeries that insurance companies should not be covering. Pauline now had to investigate the clinic.
How would she go undercover? She had to come up with a plan to get inside the clinic. This is the first time Fabio handed her a case that was new. Usually, a case was already in process.
After much discussion, the idea for the undercover was for her best friend, Goldie, to have surgery for a nose job. Pauline would once again put on her nurse's uniform and act as his private nurse.
After an examination, Dr. Cook, told Goldie he had a deviated septum. This really made Pauline wonder because Goldie never complained of having any problems. Was the doctor up to something like insurance fraud?
Pauline begins "snooping" around which include checking desks for evidence and checking an employee's computer.
When a body is discovered, Pauline is sure there is a connection to the fraud. She also realizes that she is now in danger.
Is Pauline able to solve this case before she becomes the next victim?
The Pauline Sokol series keeps getting better with each new book. These are not complicated mysteries to read but at the same time they will keep you in suspense and provide an entertaining read. Pauline is a character you will enjoy because of her enthusiasm to solve an investigation. No matter how hard she tries, she just can't get away from being a nurse from time to time. Goldie, on the other hand, provides the readers with a great deal of humor. What more can you ask for in a book - humor, suspense and a delightful, entertaining read. Be sure to add this one to your reading list.
