About the book:
“Trudy Genova has the best job a nurse could have: working as a medical consultant for a movie studio in Manhattan means no more uniforms, bedpans or white shoes. She’s working with a womanizing actor, teaching him to fake a heart attack, when he dies right in the middle of taping–but not before pointing his finger accusingly at Trudy. When detectives view Trudy as a suspect, she swings into action to clear her name, to the chagrin of NYPD detective Ned O’Malley. Soon the bodies mount up and Trudy realizes she’s put herself in jeopardy. Based on the author’s real work experience as a medical consultant, this is the book her mentor and friend, P D James, insisted she write.”

My review:

Trudy is a nurse working as a medical consultant for a TV studio where different movies or drama pieces are filmed. She teaches the actors what to do when a medical emergency happens, the doctors how to act during the emergency, and the director what terminology should be used in such emergencies. She can also use her computer to fake the signals on the machines that are attached to an actor portraying a patient in the hospital. She loves her work until one of the actors drops dead during filming. This happened right after she gave him eyes drop to make him look like he was having a heart attack. The problem arises when she becomes the main suspect of poisoning him.

Death Unscripted a Trudy Genova Manhattan Mystery by Author Marni Graff is good-paced murder mystery that will likely become your favorite. I enjoyed the twists, bodies, secrets and the light romance in this story. The characters are a great bunch of people, and the bad guys follow suit. You will find this murder mystery easy to read, yet you won’t guess who did it. What I didn’t like was the unnecessary swearing in it. There wasn’t much, but it certainly didn’t move the story or add to the telling–so why put them there?
