Slow Bleed was a fast read for me, as I could not put this book down.
A pregnant woman has surgery following a traffic incident, to save her life at the cost of her baby's life and any hope of having children in the future. She becomes an enemy of the surgeon Dr Jemma Sands, whose life is going to take a dramatic turn for the worst following the infidelity of her husband and the kidnapping of her child. This was a fast-paced medical thriller, that had everything to keep me page turning.
