You Might Feel a Little Prick
by Reuben Leder

A screaming snowman plummets from the top floor of Cleveland Mercy Hospital—a decaying relic built before the first pandemic—and disappears into the snow drifts below. By the time his thawed corpse is discovered the following spring, a body count of incompetents, frauds, and crooks who call this chamber of horrors home, has snowballed. Could these "disappearances" have anything to do with the bogus—and disastrous—spine operation performed on local hero Nick Glass, a former ballplayer? Or the wrongful termination of Nick's fiancé, Dr. Julie Toffoli, an idealistic intern not afraid to speak truth to power? It's up to celebrity Homicide cop, Artemas Sikorski, working his careercapping case, to find out. Hysterically funny, troubling, and finally moving, YOU MIGHT FEEL A LITTLE PRICK answers the question we've all been asked by someone in a white coat: Just what is your level of pain?

"The author delivers the story with comic panache...The ending, like the story overall, is a delightful surprise." —Kirkus Reviews "Outstanding…Completely original…Expect the unexpected" —Midwest Book Review "Unpredictable twists move the…narrative toward it's cohesive conclusion" —Clarion Book Reviews
