Book Review-Nerve Damage (A Drake Cody suspense-thriller Book 1)-Tom Combs

Monday, March 2, 2020

I do love medical mysteries and this one fits the bill perfectly!!

Three ER doctors have been working on a cure for paralysis from spine damage. They are also top in theor fields in the ER. Their prior lives have secrets--as do their wives.

One of the wives gets involved in a scheme to steal the cure and sell it to a foreign pharmaceutical company--she is found in the bottom of her pool. It takes a bit to figure out what killed her--and who.

There are quite a few people who might have done it--and people keep getting shot-kidnapped etc by a psycotic woman.

I really had a hard time putting this down---the ending will astound you. I will definitely be reading more of this series!!

I haven't read a good medical thriller in a while, but this one sounds like a really good read. I'll look for it.
