Oxygen by Carol Cassella

Step into the world of Dr. Marie Heaton, anesthesiologist. Her world is rather regular, until one day a routine surgery goes horribly wrong, ending in the death of a young girl. Marie can't account for what went wrong and now she finds herself the subject of a malpractice suit. Now her world is falling apart. Her father's health is failing, her collegues are slowly but surely turning their backs on her, and Marie can't seem to keep the strings of her life together. She only has a few people she can lean on and even their ability to hold her up in shaky.

If you like Jodi Picoult and medical tension, then you're in the right ballpark. Cassella has the qualifications as an anesthesiologist herself to create the character of Dr. Marie Heaton. Polished writing with amazing description and a desire to see what went wrong will keep you glued to the pages all the way until the end.
