Special Rec: 29/31
Why This Must Be Read: Set in the hiatus between season four and season five, this is an intelligent and well-written look at how House, Wilson and Cuddy could have dealt with Amber's death. All the characterisations ring true, and the relationship that unfolds between House and Cuddy is wonderfully handled.
