In Dead Ringer, internationally renowned neurosurgeon Allen Wyler takes us deep into a nightmarish scenario, shockingly ripped from recent headlines, to deliver a horrifically plausible, page-turning thriller.
There’s no doubt that the gathering of human bodies for research is important, but have you ever thought about how those bodies were acquired? Many believe that today, sophisticated international syndicates exist that traffic in body parts for medical research.
After reading Dead Ringer, you’ll never look at cadavers the same way again!
While speaking at a Hong Kong medical conference, neurosurgeon Dr. Lucas McCrae slips the cloth off a cadaver’s head during a routine medical demonstration, and is overwhelmed by what’s staring back at him: The face of his best friend, Andy Baer.
Stunned, McCrae races back to Seattle to discover that Andy is in fact missing and may have been murdered by a gang of body snatchers who operate a legit funeral business and make a fortune by selling recovered body parts to medical researchers.
McCrae teams up with an unlikely pair—a beautiful but hardnosed female cop and a gang member whose family was victimized by the cadaver ring—to try and expose a macabre web of corruption that involves law enforcement, politicians, funeral home curators and murdered prostitutes.
Wyler’s years of medical expertise really bring Dead Ringer to life, resulting in a heart-stopping medical thriller that will have you looking over your shoulder for weeks to come. It’s a face paced story that’s hard to put down once you get started, and I ended up reading the entire book in a single afternoon.
This was the first Allen Wyler book I’ve read, but it certainly won’t be the last!
