The Surgeon - Leslie Wolfe || Netgalley Review


Trusted surgeon. Loving wife. Murderer?

Before my world came crashing down, I had it all. The successful career I dreamed of. The beautiful red-brick home where I could relax in front of the fire. The handsome, devoted husband whose blue eyes and charming smile always made me feel safe.

As I call time of death, my voice is steady. My colleagues stand hushed around me, their eyes on me, confused, concerned.

I have never lost a patient until today.

My hands tremble inside their gloves. I slide down the cold tiled walls, my heart racing in my chest.

I have never hated a patient until today.

But what choice did I have, once I recognized him?
And what will I do to protect myself, if someone learns the truth?

*from netgalley in exchange for an honest review*

I requested this book forever ago when i planned on returning to book blogging but then life got in the way however it had sat on my radar for a good while and i knew i needed to take the plunge and get it read - lets just say boy am i glad i did.

A gripping thriller of a read that keeps shocking until the end. When all the obvious becomes a little less obvious and wow. It was unexpected. The pacing of this was so gripping that i found myself barely able to keep up with the pace i was reading at because i needed to keep going. 

We meet Anne a renowned doctor with a solid reputation having never lost a patient, been the face of the hospital i had my image to uphold, so when Anne lost the first patient the waters become a lot more muddied when she knew him. The first rule; don't operate on those you know. 

Now - someone has let something out and instead of the typical review into a loss, there is a state official attorney looking into this death and why? Something about it seems personal and leaves Anne reeling and she tries to understand what is happening. 

Told with a dual POV we follow the investigation into Anne from an outsider and also Anne as she tackles everything thrown at her. Like i said this is tense, gripping and just not what you expect. I really enjoyed reading this and found myself sneaking a few extra pages in whenever i could grab a few minutes.

Leslie Wolfe is a bestselling author whose novels break the mold of traditional thrillers. She creates unforgettable, brilliant, strong women heroes who deliver fast-paced, satisfying suspense, backed up by extensive background research in technology and psychology.

Leslie released the first novel, Executive, in October 2011. Since then, she has written many more, continuing to break down barriers of traditional thrillers. Her style of fast-paced suspense, backed up by extensive background research in technology and psychology, has made Leslie one of the most read authors in the genre.

Reminiscent of the television drama Criminal Minds, her series of books featuring the fierce and relentless FBI Agent Tess Winnett would be of great interest to readers of James Patterson, Melinda Leigh, and David Baldacci crime thrillers. Fans of Kendra Elliot and Robert Dugoni suspenseful mysteries would love the Las Vegas Crime series, featuring the tension-filled relationship between Baxter and Holt. Finally, her Alex Hoffmann series of political and espionage action adventure will enthrall readers of Tom Clancy, Brad Thor, and Lee Child.
