In The Pain Nurse (Poisoned Pen Press, 978-1-59058-624-2), Jon Talton manages to make a big city hospital seem as creepy as a haunted mansion. A SAVAGE KILLER IS ON THE LOOSE, a knife-wielding derelict sneaks into the hallways, the staffers are involved in more soapy relations than General Hospital, and a cop crippled from spinal surgery plays cat-and-mouse with his ex-partner in the dark corridors of the basement. Gritty, creepy stuff.
