Not all doctors are heroes . . .
Renowned surgeon Michael Trenchard locks his office door and prepares for a relaxing evening - Wagner on the sound system, a fine Scotch to hand. A knock at the door heralds the arrival of the person he most wants to see - the person who excites him more than anyone else. But what follows will turn his dreams into a living nightmare . . . for he will be discovered later that night in a locked-in coma, the victim of an auto-erotic asphyxiation.
Can this really be an accident? It is left to Dr Kash Devan, Trenchard's young protégé, to uncover the truth. What he discovers is chilling: in his ruthless pursuit of wealth and success Trenchard has left a trail of wrecked lives behind him. Which of his victims hated him so much they wanted not only his life, but also his reputation ruined?
Victory hospital, a teaching hospital where the charismatic, charming and calm Mr Michael Trenchard is the best surgeon in the hospital. Kash Devan, a young doctor who looks up to and in awe of him. This starts off a simple medical story of a young doctor learning from his mentor and inspiration, finding a young nurse but quickly turns into a fucking fantastic medical thriller. Mr Trenchard is soon found unconscious, with women underwear, the noose around his neck. It looks to be a simple auto-erotic asphyxiation gone wrong. But Kash is soon thrust into a mini Sherlock house detective work himself unravelling the truth.
I loved Kash the most, how can you not. He seems too sweet, caring and maybe a little naive. Years and years of work has gone into his dream to become a doctor, not just for himself but his family too.
There are so many dynamic, engaging and diverse characters in this book.
It was a gratifying, effortless and flowing writing style. Although this was a medical thriller, there wasn’t a substantial amount of mumble jumble medical jargon. Everything was perfectly explained which I personally thought helped the story along as we are not looking up x, y and z every five minutes.
Perfectly paced. Engaging and captivating.
Terrific and perfect.
A truly terrifying, unique, spectacular medical thriller. Many scenes in this book literally made me squerm, I felt like turning my body inside out. It is also a tearjearker, action packed and devious. Hugh has a gratifying, effortless and flowing writing style
