All That's Left by Leila Kirkconnell is a story of mystery and intrigue. Dr. Raven Finch has everything she needs, a great job, and enough money. Her life revolves around ensuring the hospital's bottom line is met, and that's how she decides the fate of her patients. Clark Smith looks after Ruby, his disabled sister, but he can only pay for the treatments she needs by working outside the law. He hates doing it, but there is no other way. Ruby falls ill and is taken to Raven's hospital, where she has to decide whether to okay the expensive treatment Ruby needs. Raven opts not to, consigning Ruby to die, but Clark isn't having that. Both Clark and Raven have secrets to hide, and Raven may just have opened Pandora's box with her refusal. Can she afford for her dark secrets to come out? Clark can't, but he will do anything for his sister – whatever it takes to get her the treatment she needs.

All That's Left by Leila Kirkconnell is a thrilling tale from start to end. Right from the start, you know that Raven is hiding some dark secret, but it takes a grief-stricken criminal to bring it all out. The plot is clever, bringing two stories together in a tale that will, by turn, tug at your heartstrings and have you railing at both the main characters for what they are doing. It's a steady story, building in both pace and suspense with enough action to keep you interested and two very well-developed main characters, not to mention a whole host of others. You will get to know Raven and Clark very well, and you'll make your own mind up as to which one you support – if either! A decent story to while away a few hours with a surprising ending.
