Editorial Reviews


Suspense, tension grabs you by the throat and won't let go until you finish the book.
I loved this thriller, a prequel to Forbidden Birth.

-Linda Rainey
A well-written, thrilling medical novel.  A fascinating and breathtaking story....A must read!
-Jo Gibbs
Fantastic Medical Thriller...another exceptional novel by William Rubin. It was easy to lose myself between the pages for many enjoyable hours.  I would certainly recommend this book, along with his other novel 'Forbidden Birth' which is also an excellent read.
-Todd Simpson 
Looking for an Engrossing Read? Look No Further. The author has the ability to engross the reader in the story and the book is well written and polished, placing it a cut above many other medical mystery novels.
-Anne P
Prequel Sets Perfect Beginning for Chris Ravello Medical Thriller Series! The thrilling ending when Chris is in serious danger cannot be beat for an exhilarating conclusion....Highly recommended.
 -Glenda Bixler
A very compelling read. I could not put this book down until I finished reading it.
-Nancy L. Silk

From the Author

Hello Readers!

Forbidden Beginnings: Jacqueline's Tragedy is the first book in the Chris Ravello Medical Thriller Series.  The series traces Chris' exploits battling criminals committing ghastly crimes that are medically or scientifically based.  Each book is a stand alone medical thriller with fast paced action, but they share a common ensemble of characters in Chris' life and follow his and his family's hopes, dreams, aspirations, and struggles.
Forbidden Birth is the second book in the Ravello series, and since January of 2017 it has consistently been on the Amazon Best Sellers Lists for Medical Fiction and Medical Thrillers. The action in Forbidden Birth picks up right where Forbidden Beginnings: Jacqueline's Tragedy leaves off.
Forbidden Cure, the third installment in the Ravello series, will be published in 2018 and feature Chris battling dark forces that threaten his life, family, and livelihood.
I hope you enjoy reading these works as much as I enjoy writing them for you.  
If you click the FOLLOW button below my picture you will be notified whenever I publish a new book.  I kindly ask that you leave a review on your favorite website(s) when you have finished reading.
I'd loved to hear from you via email at or via Facebook; william.erubin.  Thank you and happy reading!
