Rajnar Vajra's "The Woman Who Cried Corpse" (novella, time travel)

Most of it is fast-paced action story, with a mystery lurking around. But the ending spoiled it for me - too convoluted & convenient.

This is the last story I've read from Analog, January/February 2013 issue. 2 novellas, 4 novelettes, & 3 short stories - & there is only one I'll whole heartedly recommend, plus the current one with the caveat about ending.

Story summary.

An old woman is in hospital, & there have been several false alarms about her death, but she keeps getting revived. Now, again, she's dead & her daughter is called to hospital.

Daughter, a computer programmer, will get caught in a web of intrigue as she reaches hospital...
