William Delamar writes a fabulous book, but the cover is nothing like the contents. This is a prime example ‘that you cannot judge a book by its cover’. A fantastic novel depicting the inside workings of an urban hospital administration under fire from political and racial groups, greedy/arrogant doctors, underpaid nursing staff, and money-hungry attorneys. On top of all that, there is an ‘angel of mercy’ roaming the halls, helping those on their way out the back door go a little faster. I could not put it down until the last word.

Delamar did an excellent job of dramatizing what happens when the patients aren't ...Reviewed in the United States on 3 May 2016
I learned a lot by reading The Caretakers. I learned about the inner workings of some hospitals and some of the shenanigans that go on. The main character, Doug Carpenter, is a true hero who navigates his way through the hospital bureaucracy to make big changes that make the hospital more responsive to the people it serves. The characters are real and believable, and each has his or her distinct personality. The book is hard to put down as every page shows a lot of conflict and the reader wants to know what's going to happen next. Mr. Delamar did an excellent job of dramatizing what happens when the patients aren't put first. I highly recommend this book to everyone who wants to read a fast-paced novel that depicts a realistic situation.
