"A wrenching tale of medical mistakes, death, shock, grief, and frustration, told with love and anger."--Kirkus Reviews, starred review

Sandra Gilbert's husband, Elliot, underwent surgery for prostate cancer at a major medical center, and then inexplicably died hours later in the recovery room. To this day, no one from the hospital has told his family how or why he died.

Review:

Sixty-year-old Elliot Gilbert died mysteriously within twenty-four hours of checking into a hospital for routine prostate surgery. Wrongful Death is his widow's account of one family's experience with a type of medical disaster that occurs all too frequently but is rarely discussed in public policy debates focussed on growing costs and exorbitant lawyer fees.

From the Back Cover:

In Wrongful death, his widow has produced a gripping account of one family's experience with a medical disaster.
