Here, his initial suspicions prove groundless. But then he creates a forum for anesthesiologists on the Internet, where participating doctors can explore a connection between tattoos, anesthesia, and improbable cardiac arrest. I shall say no more, although Neuschatz's plot does argue for better communication between hospitals. Newman is a very busy physician.
I didn't count them; but my guestimate is that the sometimes exhausted Dr. Newman participates in at least twenty operations in terrO. This actually adds greatly to this book, since Neuschatz is very clear when writing about the medical issues presented by different surgeries and patients.
In this way, this thriller also teaches the layman a thing or two about this specialty. Intubation, in particular, becomes an almost comfortable concept. Neuschatz, by the way, is not an apologist for doctors and is critical of those who fail to upgrade their skills. Regardless, this thriller does portray a believable world of hardworking and specialized professionals. The author has clearly spent lots of time in hospitals. I quibble, for example, with the fates of Peggy Kane and Robert Raye.
The stuff about Jacob was sad but too mawkish. And I would have welcomed a little more depth in the characters, a la Graham Greene, although this might have slowed the brisk narrative. Judging the book by the conventions of a medical thriller, I'd say terrO. See all 87 reviews. Most recent customer reviews.

Feb 26, David Graham rated it it was ok Shelves: There are strong points to this book.
Joesph is retired and has appeared in many publications such as New York Times and Newsday. The "TerrOR" novel was inspired by an old, never explained operating room incident. When a simple tattoo removal goes bad Phil Newman MD begins to wonder if it was merely a case of the unknown or if perhaps there is something more sinister going on.
But when he learns legal proceedings have began and earlier than normally expected, alarms start ringing.
Is someone looking to gain funds by medical aided suicide? And if so who? Is this just a case of revenge? Or something a lot bigger? R really is terrifying.
This book really does make you want to let every detail out should you have to go to hospital, but sadly no-one will ever know every little detail about their bodies tolerances and intolerances since they can change over time. Whilst the story itself is riveting, I do personally feel that the first three quarters of the story is full of so much medical information it is possible to get a little confused although in most cases Joseph has explained in detail what is going on or what the condition is, perhaps too much information however Joseph himself being a Doctor perhaps makes explaining to the average person a difficult task in itself and you do have to commend him for his efforts.
There was also at least one incident within the story that I was not quite happy with, that I feel the story had not quite been rounded off to my liking ie I thought something was about to happen but sadly not. Joseph Neuschatz is a good writer, do not get me wrong, there are just times I feel that the Doctor took over when really the writer should have. R — a medical liability novel 4 out of 5 stars.
I was approached by the author and given a free copy of his book to read and review. This book is actually very up my alley. Being a medical professional myself, I love medical thrillers. This book is about an anesthesiologist Phil Newman and his realization that something sinister is going on in his OR and that he may take the fall for these events. There are strong points to this book.
It's obvious that Dr. Neuschatz has extensive medical knowledge. Verisimilitude is not an issue here; we believ I was approached by the author and given a free copy of his book to read and review. Verisimilitude is not an issue here; we believe that the Phil Newman is an anesthesiologist, and that he knows his stuff. The ultimate plot is very interesting, and I admired the ending, but it is buried and almost hidden see next paragraph.
There are other problems with this book that are detailed rather eloquently by other recent reviewers, and that I completely agree with. While we don't doubt the medical knowledge, the way that it is presented is clumsy and almost in a textbook manner. Important words are italicized as if the author is teaching a medical student. Instead of those details surrounding the actual story, it almost overloads the story. There are long passages about his research interests and paragraphs in second person, lecturing us on why he does certain things.
The narrator wouldn't actually do that in real life, he'd just do his job because it was second nature to him. It might have been better to have a medical student present so there would be a reason to lecture and explain medical terminology to the audience. Second, the conversations were stilted and did not flow naturally.
I've heard this is a second language for the author and that in itself, is an accomplishment, to write a book in another language. However, he sorely needs a good editor to go over the flow of his writing and correct grammar and other mistakes. That said, this is a decent first effort, and with a better editor, the next book will be much improved. Terrorism in the OR What a different concept to say the least.
A routine tattoo removal turns into rapid tragedy. Walker dies on the table for no apparent reason. Our favorite anesthesiologist Dr. Newman is informed that within twenty-hours of the Mr.
Walker's death a lawsuit is going to filed for malpractice. No one at the hospital, including his boss has ever seen a suit filed so fast. Now that is an attention getter in itself. The hospital administrator wants Dr. Newman to cau Terrorism in the OR What a different concept to say the least. Newman to cause no waves and sign on for the settlement option and continue business as normal. Something is "fishy in Finland" and he wants to find out what really caused Mr.
Walkers death, or will he? Walker's death a freak event, or is there something more sinister in his passing? I don't even think Tom Clancy could fathom this basis. Okay, that is the general premise of the story.
