I’ve always found medical thrillers to be fascinating. They introduce accidents and innovations that can help or hurt the human body in powerful ways. In Nerve Damage, fictional emergency room doctor Drake Cody is interested in helping people walk again. But, of course, when you come up with a treatment that might actually work, all kinds of things come out of the woodwork. Bad guys, for instance.
Author Tom Combs is, in fact, a doctor. His precise descriptions of patients in crisis and complex hospital procedures are endlessly entertaining. And his cast of characters is movie worthy. Not to give anything away, but there is one particular character whose powerful physique and questionable mental state would make Marvel jealous.
If you’re looking for a fast-moving story filled with twists and turns that drives the reader to a pedal-to-the-metal, nail-biting finish, then grab this book. And one last piece of advice. If you happen to be an inventor, be sure to read the fine print before signing away your miracle cure.
ER physician and medical researcher, Drake Cody, has developed an experimental drug that may help the paralyzed walk. Rogue elements operating in the shadows of the pharmaceutical industry have learned of Drake’s breakthrough and they will destroy anyone or anything that prevents them from pirating the priceless research.
Drake, his wife, and their children become pawns in a deadly contest where billions in profits are at stake and their lives mean nothing. Murder, blackmail, and violence touches all those he cares about as the hospital, his home, and his city are swept into the madness. Greed, lust, murder, and betrayal confront courage and selflessness as Drake’s family and his hospital coworkers battle to save what matters most—their patients, their love, their lives.
Physician turned bestselling author Tom Combs’ suspense-packed thriller explodes with true-to-life medical action in a tale of heart-pounding thrills, brilliant twists, and characters readers care about.
John Grisham introduced legal suspense and thrills to the mainstream—Tom Combs has done the same with the world of medicine in book one of this riveting series.
