In Denmark, Red Cross nurse Nina Borg puts her life and family on the line when she treats Hungarian Gypsies living illegally in a Copenhagen garage. What are they hiding? What makes them so sick?
Meh. I bought this book because it promised an old Soviet hospital, but it only showed up for a couple pages. So yeah. The rest was just kinda meh. The characters were the most interesting part, but even they were kinda flat. And just when I thought everything was gonna explode, it just fizzled. The resolution was incredibly anticlimactic. Plus, the motivation for the entire book was political, but not even interesting political. Basically just a Karen who had too much time on her hands … and I’m not even kidding. Did it hold my attention? Mostly, which is why it’s getting 3 stars instead of 2. But would I recommend it or even say that I enjoyed it? Nope, not really.
