About the Book

A mother who burns for justice. The doctor who can’t say no. And the killer who lies in wait.

Dr. Hope Sze solved her first murder case a week ago—and almost got strangled in the process. Now she just wants to pass her psychiatry rotation. No more Sherlock Holmes-ing for Hope. Ever.

Until her first psych patient says, “My daughter is dead. And somebody killed her.”

Hope can’t walk away from this grieving mother. Yet how can she solve a murder that stumped Montreal’s police department for the past eight years?

Sifting through the cold case, Hope recruits two hot, brilliant men to their cause, one of them her ex-boyfriend, the other a doctor who could represent her future. Yet as they draw ever-closer to the truth, the killer shifts out of the shadows.

This psychopath has waited eight long years to kill again.

Now Hope must protect not only herself, but two innocent men and a mother who yearns for retribution.

Notorious D.O.C.

A psychological thriller about family ties, revenge, and the outer edge of sanity.


“Five Stars. In her second outing, Dr. Hope Sze fights a losing battle with her twin lusts for sleuthing and men, driven by her concern for others to investigate the death of another young doctor who bears her a strong resemblance. An entertaining cast of secondary characters spices up both her detective work and her love life. An off-beat glance at the medical profession adds to the fun. A solid addition to this intriguing series.” Amazon reviewer.

“I’m reading it on my treadmill. Gotta have something interesting on my treadmill.” -Mary Baril, R.N.

“Five stars. Yay!! After reading Code Blues, I couldn’t wait to get my hands on Notorious D.O.C. and I was not disappointed. This book is a real thriller and kept me focused right until the last page. The pace is quick, and the character development is excellent.

Hope Sze continues to entertain and impress with her humour and insight. Watching her developing interactions with those around her allows the reader to get to know her better, and also gives a lot of insight into the medical system. I learned a lot reading these two books.” Anne, Amazon reviewer
