Ryn Pitts has penned a frightening behind-the-scenes look at today's health care all wrapped-up in an intriguing mystery. Only someone with the author's experience could tell this kind of story with as much technical accuracy and industry insight as this novel reveals. Her background as a registered pharmacist, hospital and clinic administrator and health insurance executive gives this yarn highly believable credibility. It's a fascinating and tightly-crafted read that quickly made me forget this is a debut novel.

If you are a patient, payor of provider in our health care system, this is a must read for you. This murder mystery is about real life experiences that can and have happened in the real world. The reader can relate to anyone of the many characters that are part of the story. You should be aware that these things happen and result in a very true to life mystery for all of us to figure out. I would highly recommend!

Pitts' sound character and scene descriptions bring this novel to life. I felt like I personally knew each character and couldnt wait to see what they would do next. She has an impeccable way of portraying the good and bad in people and the lures that steer them in each direction.

I love mysteries with a medical twist and this is a terrific one. "Deadly Benefits" shines as a first novel from a talented writer -- sharply drawn characters, tight plotting, and the kind of real world situations that drawn you right in to the story. I hate to say it but this story could happen to anyone. Real world thrillers - I can't get enough and look forward to the next novel from Pitts.

Ryn Pitts is a gifted writer with the ability to create characters and settings so clearly that they become immediately fixed in your mind. Her grasp of hospital politics and relationships is "spot-on". This is a murder mystery wrapped in the cloudy world of medicine written by an expert in the details of pharmacy, hospital administration and the practice of medicine. I could not put the book down and look forward to more.

I enjoyed this first book by Ryn and look forward to Placebo. Images and memories of various people and places within the healthcare arena of Fargo made this a page turner right to the end. I also enjoyed the Scandanavian heritage Ryn brought in as well.
