Do No Harm: A Dr. Katie LeClair Mystery
Do No Harm started out as an intriguing mystery with an exceptional cast of characters. It, however, fell short at the end. The author paints the reader a picture of a wild university party twelve years ago that ended up with a murdered girl being found in one of the quads. Eugene was found standing over the body of the girl and was sentenced to prison. Fast-forward to present day, and Eugene is released from prison, maintaining his innocence. People start harassing him and physically assaulting him, and he ends up finding a friend in Dr. Katie LeClaire. Meanwhile, a student named Taylor goes missing. Dr. LeClaire was very close to Taylor and realizes that Taylor’s disappearance may be connected to the crime that Eugene was convicted of many years ago. She started investigating the case and is soon very close to finding out what really happened that night. The story follows a fairly swift pace and one particular character is singled out as being very, very suspicious. In the blink of an eye, the story seems to take a sharp turn and ends very abruptly. I felt the end was rushed and the explanation as to the why was not explained very well. The story was a good one but made a quick splat at the end.
After editing at City Book Review for a few years, I took up the duties of editorial assistant, which include assigning books for review, posting reviews to our various sites, and nagging reviewers for things. In my non-nagging time, I’m a gamer, artist, writer, and notorious black thumb/bane of plants. My answer to every book-related question: read Octavia Butler.
