Notes: Extremely rough language and explicit material. Reviewer
Nancy Mehl is the author of Graven Images and Sinner's
is a registered nurse who isn’t sure if her career is headed
in the right direction. When she’s offered a lucrative position
with a company that sells pacemakers to doctors, she jumps at the
chance. Her natural enthusiasm and knowledge make her an invaluable
representative for MetraLink. What’s more, she’ll be
able to stay in the medical field and make more money than she ever
working conditions soon begin to deteriorate. The man she works
for is cheating her and the other reps hate her. Inflated egos and
incompetent doctors complicate an already confusing situation. She
fights hard to stay on top but begins to wonder if the price she’s
paying for financial success is too high. Then, when people around
her begin to die under unusual circumstances, Meagan becomes suspicious.
Is a serial killer on the loose? Is Meagan marked for death?
Barclay has crafted a novel that exposes the underbelly of the medical
profession. An intricate plot is complemented with interesting details
that bring a rich realism to the overall story. But be warned; this
novel is full of continual rough and explicit language, and for
the most part, the characters around Meagan are morally bankrupt
and emotionally unappealing. These aspects were a bit much for me.
Off Pace is not everyone’s cup of tea, I am certainly
impressed with Brittan Barclay’s abilities as a writer and
storyteller. Ms. Barclay will be around for a while and is certainly
a writer to keep an eye on!
