Item description for The Cure for Remembering: A Dr. Nora Sternberg Mystery by Ruth E. Weissberger...
Bewildered patients…Missing narcotics….Dying colleagues…...And a shocking family secret. Just another day at the office for Dr. Nora Sternberg.
When her great aunt, a retired nurse, dies unexpectedly after routine surgery, Dr. Nora Sternberg turns sleuth. Amid a brewing scandal over missing narcotics, she uncovers a sinister plot involving retired doctors and nurses—and a secret that will change her family forever.
As Nora collects her clues, we meet the Sternbergs, Nora's “stoic” (i.e. repressed) family; her colleagues-in-arms, Jessica and Celine; and all the people who Nora, ever the doctor, thinks of in medical terms—like the handsome physician whose looks are marred by the nervous tic of his periorbital muscles.
Written by a practicing doctor, The Cure For Remembering is a fast-paced mystery for anyone who has ever navigated a hospital's corridors—or politics.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Cure for Remembering: A Dr. Nora Sternberg Mystery?
An Excellent Blend Jan 14, 2008
I don't usually like medical mysteries because the authors tend to have a difficult time blending the "medical" and the "mystery". In some stories, you lose something if you don't have a physician's knowledge of the practice of medicine. At other times, the medical aspects of the story are superfluous to the point where you wonder why bring them up at all. In this book, the two elements are blended very well. The medical points are central to the story and you don't have to be a doctor to understand them. I also liked the character development.
Not enough focus on the plot! Dec 16, 2007
Too much family. Too many relatatives. Too much genealogy. Too much extraneous detail. Thin, not very well developed plot.

If you enjoy a good mystery with an attractive protaganist and an insiders view of what really goes on in a hospital, this is for you.
