About Irma’s Endgame.
When newspaper headlines screamed in large bold print that one of the world’s leading heart-transplant surgeons, Peter Dayton, was arrested for the death of one of his transplant patients, shock waves were felt around the world. Particularly impacted was an attorney, Irma Mullins, who found it inconceivable that the man she once loved could have committed the heinous act for which he had been arrested. Determined to find out what happened, she embarks on a course of action to uncover the truth. But when all paths lead to one dead-end after another, and Dayton continues to maintain his innocence, she detours.
Through desperation, frustration, fear, and determination she grasps at thin threads for anything that might uncover facts to help exonerate Dayton. What she ultimately discovers is both shocking and unbelievable. Written by the award-winning, international best-selling author, Paulette Mahurin, Irma’s Endgame is a story of friendship and loyalty, of betrayal and revenge, of mystery and discovery, of enmity and love. It is a narrative that shakes the very core of the scientific ground we all walk on and proves that what we think is real is not always solid terrain. This is a novel that will be remembered long after the last page is finished.
One of the early reviews for the book
I’ve been a fan of Paulette Mahurin’s writing for quite some time now and to me, she has long become one of the authors whose books I’ll one-click as soon as she announces a new release. What I also greatly admire is Ms. Mahurin’s ability to write in different genres – historical fiction, literary fiction and now, cozy mystery. No matter which genre she chooses, she never fails to deliver a strong, well-constructed plot, memorable and relatable characters, bring to life important social issues, and involve the reader on an emotional level. That was precisely the case with “Irma’s Endgame.”
A lawyer who takes pride in standing up for what is right, Irma is stunned to learn that her former college sweetheart – now a successful heart-transplant surgeon – is accused of criminal negligence and involuntary manslaughter. She promises herself to get to the bottom of this and soon an investigation begins to unravel, bringing to light more and more curious details concerning one of the heart-transplant patients, his odd personality changes, and his wife’s strange comments following the surgery.
What I enjoyed the most about this story was how complex the characters were and how easy for me as a reader it was to relate to their struggles. Peter’s perfectionism and obsession with work, which conceals deeply-buried personal struggles; Amelia’s childhood demons still haunting her to this day and influencing her irrational and hate-driven decisions; Irma’s struggling to balance the investigation and her feelings towards Peter, and many more. Peter’s relationship with his wife and his in-laws was particularly well-delivered and I sympathized with him on so many levels, wishing for him to not only clear his name but to free himself from that world that was causing him so much distress and misery.
Another intriguing aspect of this story was the fact that despite it being fiction, the idea of it is based on real medically-related cases, and this certainly made reading it even more enjoyable for me. A wonderful read, as always! Highly recommended!
