Editorial Reviews

From the Inside Flap

"A series of mishaps and an accidental death at a Pennsylvania hospital raise suspicions of sabotage in the author's debut medical thriller.  Doctors in the anesthesia department at Our Lady of Mercy Hospital are worried about losing their jobs in an impending merger, so it doesn't bode well when a patient dies soon after anesthesia is administered. Dr. Doug Landry and others are unaware that someone in their department is intentionally setting up the anesthesiologists for failure in a series of desperate acts that will ultimately lead to outright murder. Benedict's novel is a mystery story rife with suspense: A killer, whose identity is concealed, creeps into dark operating rooms; med student Rusty, searching for his elusive past, finds his way to Mercy; and a patient awakens in the midst of surgery, unable to move but feeling every agonizing cut. There's a hefty number of subplots: Doug's temptation to stray from his marriage vows with a flirtatious hospital employee; sympathetic Dr. Mike Carlucci recalling patients he's lost and trying not to succumb to the pressures of the job; plus Rusty's training and the threat of a suit against the hospital. But through shifting perspectives and a focus on the darker side of medical care--Doug tells Rusty how easily anesthesia, inadvertently or not, can become lethal--ensure that the various plots are less sentimental and more in tune with the murderous saboteur. Twists and turns abound as the story progresses, and they hit a crescendo in a scene of utter ferocity that's violent and intense." -Kirkus Reviews

About the Author

Dr. John Benedict, husband and father of three sons, graduated cum laude from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute and entered post-graduate training at Penn State University College of Medicine. There, he completed medical school, internship, anesthesia residency and a cardiac anesthesia fellowship. He currently works as an anesthesiologist in a busy private practice in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania.
 
Dr. Benedict has been writing stories since high school, but his writing was put on hold to pursue a medical education and start a family. Finally, after a 15-year pause, he returned to the keyboard to scratch the writing itch again and thus Adrenaline, his first novel--a gritty medical thriller with a realism borne of actual experience--was born. 
Besides creating scary stories, the hallmark of Dr. Benedict's writing is genuine medical authenticity--a rare commodity in thriller fiction these days. He draws on his 25+ years of experience as a board-certified anesthesiologist to infuse his writing with a realism that renders it both vivid and frightening. As one of only a handful of anesthesiologists throughout the country writing fiction, he gives readers a taste of what really goes on in the operating room, the human drama inherent in this high-stress, high stakes environment where lives are saved and sometimes regrettably lost. Readers will find out what it's like to hold someone's life in their hands, as the author provides an illuminating glimpse into the fascinating, but poorly understood realm of anesthesia.
