really liked it

I really enjoyed the intrigue of Dr Nicklaus Hart’s story. I would describe the story as a Robin Cook medical thriller meets a Clive Cussler adventure. Those are two of my favorite authors so the combo is really fabulous!

Dr Hart is a man you want to root for; he’s intelligent, principled, caring and passionate about the field of medicine. His day to day life is in a bit of a rut. He is working for a hospital that cares more about the dollar bills than the patients and it’s starting to wear on him. When his best friend is killed while serving in a mission in Guatemala, he’s suddenly thrust into a world that lights a fire in him again. He is caring for patients who truly need him and building bonds with other charity-minded Christians. In the process of helping these children, dealing with his grief and investigating his friend's murder he is ardently hoping to find the hand of God upon him in a way he’s never felt before.

I enjoyed the ride of the novel. There was lovely bits of adventure as well as historical and cultural tidbits that I was utterly wrapped up in. Being in the medical field myself, I always love that aspect of a novel as well although I must say, it was perhaps a bit much reading about a devastating virus through the lens of 2020. I appreciated the depth of Nick’s character and that he wasn’t some archetype hero lost in toxic masculinity but a man who relied on courage when needed and was truly vulnerable at times.

Thanks to the author for sharing this story with me in exchange for my honest opinion.
