In this read, you truly feel as if you’re experiencing the search for the Cascade Killer with the characters, which is a hallmark of any great read in my book. Dr. Clark hooks the reader in from the first chapter and manages to maintain that attention through his words for all 376 pages. It was engaging, entertaining, shocking, thrilling- genuinely excellent. It’s everything I look for in a good novel and something I’ll be keeping on my shelf for years to come. I can’t wait to read more from this author and to recommend this read to family and friends!
I’m not usually into medical thrillers, but picked this up after finding the blurb too intriguing to resist. Diving into the first chapter, you find yourself immediately immersed in the fast paced plot of murder mystery means hospital drama, described with enough technical detail to make it convincing and enough emotional punch to make it enveloping. The fact that the author doesn’t have “doctor” at the beginning of his title surprises me.
Dr. Powers has an interesting blend of uncertainty and a drive for truth that you don’t see in many leading medical characters. Within the first chapter, he nearly kills an influential character because of a flub in his examination, and that instantly set a tone for a book that would have me on the edge of my seat for every procedure and plot point following. Yet there’s constantly a sense of intelligence and experience surrounding him that keeps him an intriguing character to watch.
My only complaint is that the writing style could be jittery at times, as if the author lost his train of thought and was just fitting in what felt “pretty okay” for some descriptions. It broke the rhythm at points and required me to reread and contemplate to understand what they were getting at in terms of atmosphere. But overall, the medical terminology was solid and immersive, the tension strong and fast-paced, and the characters truly relatable.
If you’re into medical thrillers, then this book will definitely earn a place on your shelf. If you’re so-so on the genre, then it’s still worth picking up. Just brace yourself; it can get pretty gruesome at points, especially during that abortion scene.
This book is a thriller that will really keep you entertained. It is a little gruesome but that's the point! Plus I know the Seattle very well and it's really cool to think about!
