Lawrence Gold, M.D.about this book: Trapped is the newest novel in the Brier Hospital Series. This time, I take the reader into both the adult(ICU) and the neonatal intensive care unit(NICU).
A physician in charge of the NICU and his RN wife struggle to get pregnant. Finally, when she does, her joy ends abruptly when her husband is severely injured in an automobile accident. Worse, still is that her pregnancy is complicated by problems that threaten her and her baby's survival. Her husband suffers the many complications of traumatic injury and then falls into the 'locked in' syndrome where he's awake and aware, but unable to move any muscles but the eyes.
All three lives remain in jeopardy testing their will to live.
Writing about ICU and esp. NICU is portrayed dramatically, but realistically.
• This is a fantastic medical thriller. The author made this story real. You feel that you are totally in the character's world. The characters go through a lot of real life experiences. The author is an M.D. so I'm sure he had a lot of real life experiences to draw on. The characters have the same emotions and feeling we have. Fear, Secrets, Flaws Hopes and Desires. Just because they help to save lives doest mean that they are beyond bad things happening to them.
— Gayle Pace, 5.0 out of 5 stars
