Heart-Thumping Medical Thriller

If you love a good heart-thumping medical thriller, you’ll love Edwin Dasso’s Empty Promises. Dasso is a new author to me but Empty Promises had me hooked on the first page. I loved his fast-paced adrenaline-rush style.
A new drug with instant addiction eventually kills most users but the villains see only dollar signs and push the drug on veterans. After looking death in the face, Jack Bass’s friend Hank manages to kick the drug, but not before Bass vows to take do

Wowza, I am clearly impressed with this medical thriller. Jack, George, Hank, Amanda, Sara, and Sasha all bring their attributes to this story.
This book really touched my heart. My father and husband are both disabled veterans and I couldn’t imagine what I would do if this experimental drug found its way into their hands. It is sad to know Pharma companies do not care what happens to the patient as long as a profit can be made.
This story is well written. The dialogue is witty, tough, and in some

OMG! this story' was so scary and realistic that it kept me on the edge of my seat throughout the book. A plot with lots of drama and action using elements of greed and conspiracy from the pharmaceutical company who had developed a drug causing addictions and deaths. Jack, the main character, is like a dog with a bone as he goes after the bad guys , investigates the who, why, what, and where of it all, and tries to keep the people he cares about out of harm's way. Loved how it ended Truly a grea ...more

This is a action medical thriller that brings a scary subject to life. Greed and power threaten vets and eventially the whole public with a dangerous new perscription drug. The drug companies, govenment, medicial profession and ordinary citizens are all woven together to bring this page turning novel to life. The characters are well written and relatable. Looking forward to reading more books in this series and by this author.

This felt more like a movie than a book. I loved how action packed it was. It felt like something Tom Cruise or even Tom Hank would have starred in. Well a Tom of the A list caliber! Cover ups, conspiracy, political intrigue and medical thriller. It has everything for a Saturday night movie in a book. I loved the hero and his quest to do what is right and comes up against the big political machine. Though not too realistic it has enough truth that it makes it a very thrilling ride!

A fast paced medical thriller that I was unable to put down. An interesting perspective on the Opioid crisis-a greedy pharmaceutical company ceo develops an addictive drug testing it on vets. When Jack Bass's friend Hank becomes a victim he investigates the reasons behind Hank's strange behavior. A well written story with great character development that was an amazing read from start to finish. I can't recommend this enough. ...more

A wonderful medical thriller

This is an author I have never heard of or read before today. This was a heart stopping rollercoaster ride of emotions! It gives another view of the opioid crisis most would not even think about.

Lots of action and murder, the twists and turns leave you on the edge of your seat.

This was an interesting book. It has lots of action and murder involved. The main character is likable and is always getting involved into something that gets him in trouble. He does solve the problem with lots of danger to himself and family. It is a good read.

Great book

This military medical thriller has it all: great characters, chilling premise, heart pounding scenes and justice at the end. Edwin Dasso has written a well structured thriller that keeps you on your toes until the very satisfying end. It’s a must read.

Military medical thriller

This is a great mystery medical thriller. The writing is exceptional, the detail is very well done, and the story flowed nicely. The main characters are those that you can get behind and route for. Well done Me Dasso. Really is a 4.5.

Hmmmmmm

The book is well written. It seems there is never a right time or a good answer. When you try to do the right thing, there is always some one who tries to destroy it.
