Meet Nurse Gina Mazzio: She’s feisty, determined, tenacious, and a ballsy Italian ex-Bronxite. She might remind you a bit of Sandra Bullock when Sandra’s in FBI mode, because you know how scary nurses can be; and how compassionate. Gina’s patients are in danger. And everyone at her fancy San Francisco hospital is blowing it off like everything’s normal.
RN Gina Mazzio is not a wimp, but after nearly being murdered twice in the recent past, she needs a time out. Needs to get away from San Francisco and Ridgewood Hospital. In this third Gina Mazzio, RN series of medical thrillers, Gina and fiancé Harry Lucke sign up for a Travel Nurse assignment at a small Nevada facility involved in clinical drug trials, somewhere in the middle of nowhere. On their first day, driving down a long, creepy private road, ominous sentry-like boulders rise up to block out the sun. When they finally arrive, Gina’s “warning” eye starts to twitch when she sees iron bars across all the second-story windows. What kind of place is this, what are they really getting into?
