Miracle Creek

Miracle Creek by Angie Kim (a local author) was an engaging read. I had never heard of the controversial and experimental medical treatment of therapeutic “dives,” a pressurized oxygen chamber that patients enter with the hope of curing things like autism or infertility. In this novel, the chamber explodes and one of the patient’s parents (not the device owner) is accused of murder. It’s a courtroom drama, and a very interesting one. I thoroughly enjoyed reading it. I might have enjoyed getting to know the characters more deeply, but that would have made the book too long. It’s a good summer choice.
