Like the works of Jodi Picoult and Chris Bohjalian, The Mystery of Breathing explores highly contemporary ethical dilemmas in a page-turning drama. An intense medical thriller, psychologically riveting, The Mystery of Breathing takes readers inside the competitive world of emergency medicine. Maggie Claymore is a brilliant neonatal physician at the top of her game and the height of her career when she falls prey to an anonymous hate note campaign designed to destroy her reputation. Klass, herself a pediatrician, lends firsthand immediacy to the breakneck pace of high-tech medicine and its toll on a dedicated doctor. In her acute portrait of Maggie, Klass "specializes in that space between a rock and a hard place that contemporary women find themselves in" (Seattle Post-Intelligencer).
