Developed over thousands of years, modern medicine is something that very few of us actually understand, even our best doctors only having a grasp on the very specific areas they have devoted their entire lives to. For this reason, writers with actual medical experience tend to be highly-valued in the world of books, being able to weave their unique insights and experiences into their stories, rendering them more realistic and even educative in some cases. Sandra Block is certainly part of that exclusive conglomerate, being both a writer and practicing neurologist. Her ability to translate her personal knowledge onto paper is quite remarkable, and I believe one of the best places to witness it is the third book in Zoe Goldman series, titled The Secret Room.

In this case, the main plot is actually quite engaging for a couple of reasons.
