Review

"All the sure elements of a big seller written by pros who know how to tell a story." --Publishers Weekly

"Truly one of the best books I've ever read! I luuuvvved the international jet-setting element, and the characters were each riveting in their own unique ways. I simply could not put it down! If I could give it 10-Stars, I would! It's that good!!!" -- bestselling author DD Scott

"Just when you thought it was safe to go back into the operating theatre... NYT best-selling author Ruth Harris and Michael Harris take on the medical-political thriller. Sleepless nights ahead for Daniel Silva and Tess Gerritsen as their crowns are threatened." --Mark Williams, co-author of Sugar and Spice

"Sex, greed, ambition and murder - what's not to like? It's great to see NYT bestselling  author, Ruth Harris and Michael Harris move into the thriller genre with this cracking debut." -- Mark Chisnell, author of The Defector

From the Author

HOOKED is based on real-life "youth doctors" of the 1960s who became as rich and famous as their celebrated patients. One of the best known, Paul Niehans, developed his "cellular therapy" in which particles of lamb embryos were injected into the patient. Dr. Niehans claimed the treatment would retard the aging process and cure almost everything from homosexuality to heart disease. Though viewed with suspicion by many doctors, Niehans counted among his grateful patients Pope Pius XII and Gloria Swanson. (This information is adapted from an article published by the Alicia Patterson Foundation.)


HOOKED and BRAINWASHED are Books #1 & #2 in the KILLER THRILLER Series and are available together in a boxed set.

...living in the 1960's. This fun, quick, absorbing read is a fictional retelling of President Kennedy, Maria Callas and Ari Onassis. Not sure how they all connect? Well they were connected thru a doctor who specialized in a cocktail to relieve pain. The cocktail was basically methamphetamine, Benzedrine and prob. some vitamin B-12. I have personal knowledge of the doctor in question. During the early 1980's I worked on Broadway and I was an assistant to a legendary film/Broadway actor/actress. On Wed. and Sat. there were matinee performances at 2pm and evening performances again at 8pm. After the matinee, while the star was asleep in their dressing room, a mysterious person with a doctor's bag would quietly creep in, remain for five minutes and sneak back out. After this visit, the actor/actress would stay up for two days straight and be almost manic in their behavior. One stage manager said they needed to peeled off the wall after their "shots". I found out that the injections were methamphetamine and speed. So Gavin Jenkins is modeled on a real doctor who worked in a Park Avenue office. The doctor in question dispensed shots to all the Broadway hot shots-composers, song writers, directors, etc. It was thru this doctor that President Kennedy was first introduced to injections of methamphetamine and speed for his chronic back pain. I don't think I'm talking out-of-school here because it's fairly well-documented that this doctor would fly down to Washington every other week and inject the President with the drugs. (Robert Evans talks about in THE KID STAYS IN THE PICTURE.) The famous opera singer is modeled on Maria Callas who was seeing Aristotle Onassis on and off again during her adult years. The authors use these characters to spin a serious web of intrigue.Read more ›

This was truly one of the best books I've ever read!

I luuuvvved the international jet-setting element, and the characters were each riveting in their own unique ways.

I read this book in less than two days because I simply could not put it down!

If I could give it 10-Stars, I would! It's that good!!!

As a RN I thought the staff conflicts in hospital scenes were right on! Dr. Gavin Jenkins' talent AND ego reminds me of doctors I've known and worked with. The plot kept me guessing until the end and the 1960's glamorous,jet-set settings is a big plus! Enjoy.

Hooked is a powerful novel populated by larger than life men and woman who use the world as their playground. Great characters and fast moving. From start to finish I wasn't able to put it down except to recharge th iPad.

I have read Ruth Harris's books years ago; I think this is a re-issue because of the time-frame references. I wish publishers would establish this, if only, for readers of past books. Still, it's a good story. If you like medical thrillers this one's for you.

Political intrigue and, a fight to the death for mid-Eastern oil that goes all the way from a millionaire's yacht to the White House. If you love a fast-moving story with lots of plot twists, you'll love HOOKED. I did.
