My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I'm not sure I've ever read a book that scares me...but I have now! I've always said I couldn't find a movie to scare me but I've *wanted* to be scared. I had some crazy nightmares while reading this book but they were also interesting! (insane, I know!)
Jillian's sister is dead and everyone says she committed suicide. Jillian knows better...she believes she was murdered. Jillian spends a great deal of time devoted to finding her sister's killer. Along the way, pieces begin to fall into place about what really did happen.
There are some slight political undertones in this book. The murderer has some links to Al Qeida and references are made to 9/11. However, this shouldn't effect the reader in enjoying this book.
Expect to stay on the edge of your seat while reading this fast paced novel full of suspense, murder, lies, and romance. Oh, and don't forget about the medical references for those of us who are junkies!
Michael Palmer has created a character who is suffering from PTSD, a very common disorder in our world today. It was interesting to learn about the SUD score (mine varies from day to day from a 5 to a 7!) I appreciate the research that has gone into crafting this phenomenal book.
My thanks to Michael Palmer for providing a review copy. Look for The Last Surgeon to hit shelves on Feb. 16!!
