About the Novel
See Me: A Jeannie Johal Thriller
Jeannie Johal is a young Brown surgeon from Mumbai who fakes her own death to flee from her controlling husband.
She makes a new life for herself as a quality improvement consultant in Canada, where she investigates when patients are harmed while in hospital.
She discovers a web of workplace intrigue fueled by professional rivalries and illicit relationships. Her investigation runs parallel with the investigation into the murder of the quality improvement physician leader, and Jeannie soon finds herself being threatened.
Who wants her out of the way? Will she discover the truth or will she be the next murder victim?
See Me is a realistic glimpse into the complexity of health system error fraught with conflict, hidden agendas, and unanticipated consequences. Camus is a masterful story teller, interweaving fact and science into an engrossing tale of intrigue, courage and human frailty. Once I picked it up, I couldn't put it down. I hope this is not the last we hear from intrepid improver Jeannie Johal.

Praise & Reviews
Masterful Storyteller...Highly Recommend
I started reading this book last night and could not put it down. I was so intrigued. Camus is a wonderful storyteller. Her plot had so many twists and turns that I couldn't wait to turn to the next page. Intertwining the medical profession, multi-cultures, and personal struggles in healthcare was masterful. Thank you...it has been a long time since I enjoyed a book so much. I can't wait to read Camus's next book.

Susann Camus's first thriller paints an accurate and compelling picture of what happens behind the scenes in a large Canadian health region. Where maintaining quality of care is a must, her novel illustrates how difficult this can be when a cast of colourful characters and personalities all with their own agendas cross paths during the investigation of the murder of a prominent physician. Three intriguing subplots bring the reader in touch with different cultures and their motivational effects on Jeannie, the compelling protagonist, and two other main characters. Camus deftly weaves the very real life issues of racial and gender prejudice into her story to build even more conflict and tension. Stacey Stelcoe and Jaspreet Gill, the officers brought into investigate the murder, move the story along with an easy rapport and bring romantic interest as well. "See Me" kept the lights on late as I was eager to keep reading the fast paced plot and find out how our heroine, Jeannie, resolves the conflict at the centre of her life. I highly recommend Ms. Camus's thriller. It will keep the reader absorbed from beginning to end!
