Informed Consent  Jun 4, 2008
Informed Consent tells the story about a doctor and researcher, Jeffrey Cramer, who has discovered a possible cure for AIDS. The media loves him. But guilt from accidents that wreak havoc on the lives of those he loves plaques him and spurs him toward work, taking him away from his family. When another accident? sabotage? brings about horrible results with his cure, the media and the hospital turns against him. Now his own son's life hangs in the balance. Dare he use the cure to save his son's life, even if it means unethical medical practices?

The writings propels you forward, forward, forward in the action, and deep into the character's psyche. Sandi doesn't waste a single word. Each scene spins with meaning.

Nothing is simple. Even when characters make decisions that you know are wrong, you don't question the character. Sandi doesn't give you predictable or easy answers. Flaws pepper the pages, yet these characters aren't pure evil. They are you and me trying out to figure out truth in this messy world.
 
Medical Thriller  Dec 10, 2007
REVIEW: WARNING: After reading "Informed Consent" you will NEVER look at Doctors and nurses the same way again. After all they are just humans like the rest of us right? I know there is office politics in whatever work environment but when you read about what goes on in the inner workings of a hospital it makes you a little sick to your stomach.

When Hospital personnel make mistakes on the job or don't follow procedure or don't get "INFORMED" consent patients are put at risk and some die. Sandra definitely explores how some doctors try to get around "Informed Consent" and what that means to the patients.

How is the cure for AIDS going to be found? Sandra reveals one way; thru that of a Dr./Researcher who is personally motivated by personal tragedy to find a cure for what killed his father but not himself. Could finding the cure for his fathers death lead to a break thru the whole world is looking for? It could happen!

Parts of this book were medically wordy. Some where stressful to read because it dealt with children and possible medical mishaps that put them in harms way. Then there were other parts of the book that were fast paced - thrilling and emotionally suspenseful!! Buckle up when you read this book.

One of the best books I've read this year!  Nov 3, 2007
I almost didn't accept this book to review as I had SO many to read, but the subject matter intrigued me. Now I'm glad I took this book on. I'll tell you why...Informed Consent is one of the most emotional, suspenseful, intelligent, and exhilarating stories I've read in a long time. The up-close look into marriage issues, grief and loss, and biomedical/ethical subject matter makes me rank this amazing novel as one of the best I've read this year. It is SO obvious that the author did a lot of research and she addressed the subject with insight and compassion. This story moved me to tears numerous times.

In some ways Informed Consent--which is a perfect title for the story--reminded me of a movie I watched starring Denzel Washington. In the movie he was stuck in an impossible situation and yet found a way to fix the problem. His solution was totally insane, but it sure made you think about the desperation people feel when they long to save a loved one, but face seemingly impossible barriers along the way. Informed consent tackled some really tough issues with finesse.

I'm reluctant to share much detail regarding this awesome novel because it's very suspenseful and I don't want the reader to miss out on the anxiety-provoking twists and turns by tipping them off to some of the dilemmas and solutions. But I will say that this story not only provokes intelligent thinking, but it makes you ponder spiritual issues as well. I am thoroughly impressed by the quality of the plot, the author's incredible "voice", and the pull this story had on me. I can't say enough good things about it, but I will say that from this point forward I intend to read EVERY book Sandra Glahn writes.
 
ANOTHER GREAT ONE FROM GLAHN  Oct 20, 2007
Glahn is a superb researcher and it shows in this fine novel. The characters are real, the situations from today's headlines and readers will be thrown into the ethical debates and struggle with coming to their own conclusions on the matter. She is a great writer and one to watch. She gets better with each novel.
