I enjoy smart novels, the kind where you learn specialized work like medical terms and procedures. For that I was drawn to this work. The author has done their homework and mixed it with a passion for story, and the end result is wonderful.

Irma’s Endgame is truly an emotional rollercoaster ride! It’s a page turner from beginning to end. The author has obviously done a lot of detailed research for this book and pours much of her life experience as a nurse into her writing. The character development is excellent; the reader can’t help but feel something for hero and villain alike. What runs through this story, in addition to a good dose of mystery and suspense, is the power of love through the years, how it ebbs and flows and influences the direction our lives take. A must read – highly recommend!

AH! Where do I begin? I really loved this book, as it reminded me a lot of a mix between James Patterson and Mary Higgins Clark. Medical mysteries are fascinating, but when they include complex characters, and many layers of uncertainty and moral confusion, it’s the perfect combination of a book that I can’t put down. I read this in a day and a half. The scare-factor of a drama like this is that you can absolutely imagine this happening in our world today, right now, as it deals with things very real in our lives rather than abstract concepts.
The main character, Irma, is complex and passionate, which instantly had me personally invested in the fate of the characters, and of the mystery that she was trying to solve. As Jeff Goldbloom said over twenty years ago, “Your scientists were so preoccupied with whether or not you could that you didn’t stop to think if you should!” That’s a quote that echoes throughout this novel in conjunction with the mystery itself.
Then, enter Peter, a heart surgeon at the crux of a murder investigation… although my skeptical mind wanted to assume that he was guilty, I also hoped that he wasn’t, he was written in a sense that you feel invested in his general motivations and the struggle of who he really is deep down is always just scratching at the surface. I don’t want to give away the twists or the ending, but this is definitely a fast-paced, well-developed page turner and I absolutely plan to check out more of Paulette’s work!

 This book delivers at so many levels. The prose entices with a harmony that is both beautiful and unique to this writer’s voice; ‘The door to her closed heart had been kicked open.’ I could share many powerful phrases like that one, and thus Irma’s Endgame Kicks open the reader’s curiosity and anticipation.
I don’t like to review with spoilers and that is a hard thing to do with this multifaceted story-line in which one explores dynamics in unique relationships. The kind of encounters that fate thrust upon people with no warning or expectation.
As the characters suffer, as a reader I felt their pain. When they found light, I did as well. I cannot stop thinking of so many aspects in the story-line.
I took a four-hour train ride after I finished the book and found myself talking to a fellow traveler, a stranger, about cellular memory as explored in this storyline. He wrote down the book’s title. I know in the next few weeks I will Google it often!
The story takes place during the course of several years. This was written with a clever backdrop of global events, as a reader it placed me right there.
The type of brilliant book that is thought provoking and lingers on long after one reads the last page.

Paulette Mahurin has a unique talent for finding and furthering our understanding of intense human crises. IRMA’S ENDGAME resonates with an exceptional issue of personality changes in heart transplant patients when they manifest characteristics of their donors. This psychological thriller keeps the reader on pins and needles to see the resolution come about. Clues suggest various possibilities but the truth will out. When the surgeon’s prescriptions for contraindicated medications threaten patients’ lives until one dies, his first love sets out to determine where answers are to be found. The doctor is shunned, loses his practice as a world renown physician and endures many months of self-examination. Relationships evolve in curious ways as the donor’s husband and the recipient are drawn to one another in a unique friendship. Characters are finely detailed as they grow on the page. Unexpected answers ultimately appear as relationships shift and the murderer is determined in hr mental illness. The surgeon is exonerated and finds he will leave the field to follow his original dreams
.Mahurin weaves in historical events and trends from political crazes to environmental crises, from horrific threats to peace and reason to significant potential for changes. Mahurin’s medical background, familiarity with the court system and her love of dogs come through loud and clear. Thank you Paulette Mahurin for always shining the light on important issues.

A mysterious death and sensational headlines sends two families into chaos in this well crafted, well-written fast-paced medical/legal mystery. What starts out as an ordinary day for an attorney, Irma, is anything but when she sees the front page of the Los Angeles Times screaming that her ex has been charged with murder. Her ex is an international heart-transplant surgeon, Peter Dayton, with an unblemished record. When Irma sets out to help exonerate Peter, she elicits the help of two of her best friends: another attorney and a Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist. Through a road that leads to one dead end after another, Irma refuses to give up when Peter espouses his innocence. But when no other suspects show up on the horizon and Irma’s team starts to doubt Peter’s veracity, she is not deterred. Refusing to give up, it is in Irma’s search for the truth that she discovers that reality isn’t always what we “think” or “believe” it is. And in constructing solid data that would stand up in court, Irma discovers that sometimes you have to start with the unseen, an intuition and follow your gut despite all temptation not to. It is her faith in this unknown element of existence that Irma, along with her two friends, walk the path against resistance to find that the road to truth is filled with decoys and detours. And the answer she finds is not what she anticipated. Right to the end, we don’t know if Dayton did it. Were Irma’s efforts all in vain? Was she a puppet to some insane manipulation? Or was she onto something incredible? No spoilers here. This was a compelling, hard-to-put-down read. Entertaining and educating for I learned some amazing things about modern-day medicine regarding heart-transplant patients. Great read!

I have the author’s previous books, which portray matters of social interest in historical settings, and appreciate her style of writing, so was keen to see what a book in a different genre would bring forth.
I was not disappointed!
I had never heard of personality transfer in transplant cases, but as Irma the lawyer forges on in her attempt to save her first love, a distinguished heart surgeon, from accusations of murder, this proves to be, dare one say, at the heart of the matter, where a transplant case gives rise to personality change and the consequences which this has on famly and others….leading to murder.
Well drawn characters…the author is tops at showing rather than telling…..who bear you along with them as the story unfolds in a context which first of all appears to the layman to be incredible but which becomes all too real.
A great read.

Not my usual read, but boy, was I glad I picked this one up.

It’s a roller coaster ride of emotions as we follow the lives of these well written and believable characters in this medical thriller. No, spoilers, but I’d highly recommend you get to know Irma and her ex, you won’t be disappointed.

A very different and original plot. What stood out the most for me about this book was, aside from being well-written, it was a treasure trove of the characters’ personalities and emotions and how they were described in such a detailed way and to such a level to bring rise to questions to connections within ourselves.

The world-building of this story and the level of description is second to none and the storyline unfurls to reveal hidden branches, of which I won’t go into here as there has been enough been written about the plot in other reviews.
It leaves me to say that I really enjoyed this book and will be very interested to see what the author brings next.

From the pen of one of my favourite authors comes a rivetting thriller with explosive tension, heart break and excellent twists.
It’s hard to describe the enormous value of this book without giving away plot twists and some of the surprises that hit me so hard while reading this book.
Irma is a lawyer who takes on the seemingly hopeless case of her ex-boyfriend, a surgeon on trial. Set in the world of heart transplants the book touches on many deeper issues and philosophical questions related to organ donation.Woven into this are complex characters and strange personal developments between the characters that come together in a truly unbelievable denouement. Mahurin never lets up the tension and drama, pushes us to think about ethics and surprises us with facts and connections I never saw coming.Fast paced, engaging and thought-provoking, informative on a medical level and satisfying on an emotional level this is Mahurin at her best. While I perferred her historical novels in the past, I feel the medical thriller genre has found a new kid on the block to watch out for.
Highly recommended.

What if the human heart was not just a mechanical pump in the body, an organ with purely physiological properties? What if it were something altogether more complex and mysterious?
When renowned transplant surgeon Peter Dayton removes the heart from the victim of a road traffic accident, Lexi Parkhouse, and transplants it into the dying body of Jeffrey Kincaide, a chain of events is set in motion with devastating consequences. In the sumptuous Bel Air mansion that is home to the wealthy Kincaide family, the couple’s previous domestic harmony turns sour as Jeffrey recuperates with his new heart. Initially overcome with gratitude at the miraculous intervention that saved her husband’s life, Amelia Kincaide, becomes increasingly disturbed by what she perceives as abnormal changes in him, changes that inspire suspicion and hatred. At the same time, Lexi’s grieving widower, Randolf Parkhouse, is struggling unsuccessfully to get over the loss of the woman he loved. In an attempt find solace, he starts to explore far-fetched, quasi-spiritual notions about communion with the dead, becoming gradually convinced that he is still somehow connected to his wife, whose presence lingers on earth through the heart which now beats in the chest of Randolf.
Unaware of all this, surgeon Peter Dayton continues to operate. He is a man who, on the surface, has everything–money, prestige, a brilliant career and international reputation–but, apart from his job and his affection for his dog, Bella, he is carrying out a meaningless existence in a loveless marriage, consumed by regret for the woman he loved and lost years ago through his own bad choices. Unknown to him, that woman, Irma Mullins, is about to enter his life once more when she opens a newspaper and reads that her former lover has been arrested on charges of killing one of his patients. ‘Involuntary manslaughter…’ Shocked to the core, Irma has no doubt as to her ex-lover’s innocence, and, convinced he is the victim of a vendetta, determines to clear his name.
What starts as a classic, suspenseful whodunnit gradually turns into something far more complex and multi-layered. Author Paulette Mahurin puts her characters under the microscope, scrutinising what is going on in their ‘hearts’ in the wider sense of the term, dissecting in forensic detail the way they live, their innermost feelings and passions, how their backgrounds have shaped their personalities, the motivations behind their behaviour and, more immediately, their reactions as events unfold with a frightening inevitability, sweeping them along like a flash flood. The tempestuous rumblings in their personal stories are eerily mirrored in what is happening on a planetary scale. Global political and economic upheaval, growing social divides in Western societies, the devastation raging in war torn countries, the apparent increase in extreme weather events–all these contribute to an ominous feeling that the world is off kilter, out of balance, chaotic. We sense that things are slipping beyond our control, our belief in the rational, the scientific, the provable, is shaken, our certainties over-turned. As Irma remarks, becoming more and more stressed by the agonising drag of the legal process and the seeming impossibility of altering its course, it is ‘like trying to mold pottery with over-wet material while in handcuffs.’ The tension builds as the characters react to the growing pressure (I found myself experiencing sympathetic stomach pains), with even those most convinced of Peter’s innocence, including himself, beginning to have doubts.
By crafting such detailed portraits of her characters and their growing emotional turmoil, Mahurin anchors her story in the real, the every-day, and is thus able to give credibility to the incredible, when at last Irma’s team begin to make progress, discovering a thread which, unbelievable as it may appear, offers a chance of building a solid case in Pete’s defence: ‘a small, barely visible thread that (leads) to a Sherman tank.’
It’s impossible to do justice to all the admirable qualities of this author’s latest work in a short review. Suffice it to say that that ‘Irma’s Endgame’ is one of those books which not only keeps us captivated until the last page, but also prompts us to ask questions about our own lives, the mistakes we make, the paths we choose and their validity, and our dimly perceived apprehension of the greater truth behind Hamlet’s words: ‘There are more things in heaven and earth, Horatio, than are dreamed of in your philosophy.’

This books mingles the factual story of Nelly Bly with fictionalised characters whose backstories are based on fact.

Investigative journalist Nelly Bly had her self committed to a mental institution in the 1880s in order to expose the mistreatment that was common practice. Using fictional characters, the story become more humanised, exploring the lot of both women in need of mental care and those who found themselves there because they were an inconvenience to someone with more power than them. You can’t help be moved by this story and by the support the inmates give each other in this bleak existence and oppressive cruelty.

I find the subject of holocaust to be fascinating and depressing at the same time. Every time I read a book that covers holocaust, whether real or fiction, it leaves me drained for days. The Seven Year Dress is the story of a real survivor presented in a fictional form.

The story starts with a young girl looking for accommodation and meeting Helen Stein. She feels that the questions asked by Helen were very personal and though she feels uncomfortable, she ends up renting from Helen. The readers then find out more about Helen who was born and brought up Germany in 1930s. She grew with love from her family and seeing hatred on the streets. This book is her journey from being a young carefree girl to ending up in Auschwitz.

The author has done an impeccable job of painting the character of Helen. The character grew through the book from a young soul to that of an old soul through her experiences. Through the protagonist, the author has painted a picture of what life was like for the common people and the Jews in that period. What I liked the best about the book was the part in Auschwitz that portrays human bonds at its rawest form. The fact that there was hope and kindness in a camp like that is unnerving yet optimistic.

The author has also explored the idea that sexuality is a part of one’s identity with the backdrop of the war. On one hand, we see Helen’s rollercoaster journey taking her to places she couldn’t have imagined all the while growing into and accepting her sexuality irrespective of the situations that she was in. On the other hand, through her best friend we see the plight of a gay man during the Nazi reign.

The title of the book, which originally confused me in the beginning, comes from a dress that Max had gifted Helen. What that dress stood for and why it meant so much to Helen will be clear once you read the book and in turn help you understand the title. All in all, this was an interesting book to read. Depressing at times, this only goes to show how capable an author Paulette Mahurin is, it is a heavy book that needs to be given time and attention.

About The Persecution of Mildred Dunlap

The year 1895 was filled with memorable historical events: the Dreyfus Affair divided France; Booker T. Washington gave his Atlanta address; Richard Olney, United States Secretary of State, expanded the effects of the Monroe Doctrine in settling a boundary dispute between the United Kingdom and Venezuela; and Oscar Wilde was tried and convicted for "gross indecency" under Britian's recently passed law that made sex between males a criminal offense. When the news of Wilde's conviction went out over telegraphs worldwide, it threw a small Nevada town into chaos. This is the story of what happened when the lives of its citizens were impacted by the news of Oscar Wildes' imprisonment. It is chronicle of hatred and prejudice with all its unintended and devastating consequences, and how love and friendship bring strength and healing. Paulette Mahurin, the author, is a Nurse Practitioner who lives in Ojai, California with her husband Terry and their two dogs--- Max and Bella. She practices women's health in a rural clinic and writes in her spare time. All profits from her book are going to animal rescue, Santa Paula Animal Shelter, the first and only no-kill shelter in Ventura County, CA, where she lives. (see links below on Ventura County Star Article & Shelter) To find out more please go the The Persecution of Mildred Dunlap on facebook or Amazon or e-mail us at the gavatar addresses. Thank you.

    • Heartwarming says it, my friend. My heart aches when I see them in the kennels. And that ache disappears the minute I see them exit and begin wagging. The moment the realization hits them when they are freed is wonderful. Food for the heart. Have a great day at the ranch. ❤
