Ghost Heart (A Medical Thriller)


Title:  Ghost Heart (A Medical Thriller)

Author:  Lisa Harris & Lynne Gentry

Pages:  350         

Year:  2017

Publisher:  Create Space Independent

My rating 5 out of 5 stars.

What a heart (no pun intended) gripping story has been written by these two gifted authors!  Just wait until you read in the back of the book what spurred this novel to be written!  If a little bit of graphic descriptions of body parts and blood bother you, please try not to let that keep you from reading this tale with a very surprising ending.

The story is staged both here in the United States and Africa, telling about organ donation and procurement.  Along with that storyline is another about pharmaceutical testing of medicines and ultimately about greed with its consequences.  Remember, this is fiction even though as I read the book I could envision all that was described as taking place.  Here is a very good way of giving us insight into what parents of children or adults go through when needing an organ replacement. 

I felt for the doctor fighting for her patient’s survival in a small village in Africa while another doctor was after money, prestige and playing upon the superstition of the villagers.  Dr. Mia Kendall would befriend the villagers and help to save lives no matter the cost to her personally.  Race was the pilot who would transport the organs to the hospitals and as Dr. Kendell shared her suspicions, he risks a lot to help.  Could there be a blossoming romance between the pilot and doctor?

Here is a thriller that will cause your heart to race and have you staying up until all hours reading as you reach the very action-packed ending!  The novel is one of the best and one of my favorites for this year thus far!  Though truth be told I have many favorites being a voracious reader, lol!

My rating is 5 out of 5 stars.
This whole series is so worth reading! They excel at suspense and grabbing the heart of the reader, pulling them into the plethora of happenings in the book. The series has a total of four books that can be read as stand-alone stories though I found reading them in order helped enhance my understanding of the plot and characters.
The titles in order are: Convenient Lies, Twisted Lies followed by Generous Lies, which comes before this final novel I am sharing my thoughts on today.Robin weaves such a well-crafted plot that brings the reader into the story from the first page, and then keep turning the pages with all the twists and turns in the plot.I felt like I was right there observing what was happening around me even though I was reading the book.
Time flew by quickly and I was unaware of what was going on around me because I was lost in the pages!Right th…
