Suzy's Case by Andy Siegel

 Judd Apatow meets Scott Turow in this rollicking debut thriller featuring one-of-a-kind New York attorney Tug Wyler.  While prosecutors and criminal attorneys abound in the mystery world, rarely have readers been thrust headlong into the high-stakes arena of personal injury law as Siegel injects antic wit and unexpected tenderness into a medical malpractice case involving a little girl.

Suzy's Case is the debut thriller by Andy Siegel, but it is so much more.  Little Suzy has sickle cell anemia, which is bad enough.  Then one day in the hospital something happens and now she's brain damaged and has cerebral palsy and is a quadriplegia.  Her mom June files malpractice with the hospital and the doctor, but cases like these take time.

Now, six years later, Tug's boss Benson gives him the case and tells him it's an open and shut case and to get rid of it.  But after meeting Suzy and learning more about her case, Tug can't let it go, even if it means his career.

An intriguing, in-depth look into malpractice and the legalities it contains will educate you, sure but will leave you with a better understanding of how the process works.  Siegel's character development and clever dialogue will keep your eyes glued to the pages of this well-written novel!

The old grey donkey, Eeyore stood by himself in a thistly corner of the Forest, his front feet well apart, his head on one side, and thought about things. Sometimes he thought sadly to himself, "Why?" and sometimes he thought, "Wherefore?" and sometimes he thought, "Inasmuch as which?" and sometimes he didn't quite know what he was thinking about.

Thank you for taking time out of your day to leave a comment. It's appreciated.
