A Psychological Thriller by Margie Miklas

A Book Excellence Award Finalist​

​Corruption and cover-up are a prevailing, yet disturbing trend today. Critical Cover-Up, a psychological thriller, delves into a mysterious murder of a prominent surgeon, cover-ups, and malpractice in a place known for saving lives

Allison Jamison abandoned a lucrative real estate career to become a nurse and be able to impact others’ lives during their most vulnerable times. When she accepts a job in a critical care unit at a prominent Florida hospital, corruptive practices threaten to shatter her illusions. An element of evil lurks just beneath the surface and around corners in a place typically known for saving lives.

The murder of a popular surgeon, a fatal mistake in a critical care unit, and anonymous threats challenge Allison’s idealistic ambitions. She finds herself caught up in a healthcare system that prioritizes profit over ethics and patient safety.

Stifled by hospital politics, she must find a way to expose the wrongdoers, even if it means risking her job and maybe even her life.
