Page-turner’ hardly does it justice! The Complication has everything: accomplished nurse/lawyer/pilot Camille Delaney as a brainy sleuth with a bevy of bold women helping her, a murderous surgeon with victims everywhere, gorgeous Pacific Northwest scenery, medical and legal drama—and suspense that Just. Won’t. Quit. Whew! What a ride!

As a retired justice of the Washington Supreme Court, I’ve seen the mysteries of justice and injustice, but not with the excitement DuBois has created. Law, medicine, ambition, family, privilege, and flying collide against the beautiful and challenging backdrop of Seattle and the San Juan Islands. Hang on for an exciting landing.

Thrilling and appalling, just how we like them. A definite page-turner, but keep the lights on. Amanda DuBois sparkles in her debut novel.

Nothing is quite as it seems in this taut medicolegal thriller by lawyer-turned-author Amanda DuBois. With a kick-ass female divorce attorney hell-bent on finding the truth and seeking justice when her friend bleeds out on the operating table, this is an engrossing read with twists and turns on every page.

This book is so much more though. The plot is brilliant, the pace is spot on, the explanations of medical and legal procedures and terminology are cleverly disguised as just a part of the regular dialogue so you don’t feel like you’re at a lecture.

In addition to putting her lived experience to good use in this medical/legal thriller, [Amanda] draws on one of our worst nightmares, someone close to us dying from complications during a routine surgical procedure.
