World renowned neurosurgeon Jon Ritter is on the verge of a medical breakthrough that will change the world. His groundbreaking surgical treatment, using transplanted non-human stem cells, is set to eradicate the scourge of Alzheimer’s disease and give hope to millions. But when the procedure is slated for testing, it all comes to an abrupt and terrifying halt. Ritter’s colleague is gunned down and Ritter himself is threatened by a radical anti-abortion group that not only claims responsibility, but promises more of the same.
Faced with a dangerous reality but determined to succeed, Ritter turns to his long-time colleague, corporate biotech CEO Richard Stillman, for help. Together, they conspire to conduct a clandestine clinical trial in Seoul, Korea. But the danger is more determined, and more lethal, than Ritter could have imagined.
After successful surgical trials, Ritter and his allies are thrown into a horrifying nightmare scenario: The trial patients have been murdered and Ritter is the number one suspect. Aided by his beautiful lab assistant, Yeonhee, Ritter flees the country, now the target of an international manhunt involving Interpol, the FBI, zealous fanatics and a coldly efficient assassin named Fiest.
What if you were able to discover the cure for a horrible disease that affects so many people around the world, a cure for Alzheimer’s? That is exactly what Jon Ritter is about to do, however, there are those that will stop at nothing to prevent that from happening. His motivation to do so stems from trying to cure his grandmother. He also fears that he himself may have inherited the disease, and that someday it may kick in.
He soon discovers that the death of his colleague and close friend was no accident and it was linked to his medical research on finding the cure. Now, he is doing everything that he can to keep his research from falling into the wrong hands, and trying to keep himself alive…
I previously read Dead Ringer by Allen Wyler and I enjoyed it so much that when I was asked to review Dead End Deal, I immediately jumped at the opportunity! I am so pleased that I did as Dead End Deal is definitely one of my favorite books of the year!
My favorite aspect of the novel was the premise itself. The author incorporates many emotions into the novel as well as the themes of greed and power, keeping the story very realistic. Jon Ritter was a cleaver character, who was always one step ahead from those that were hunting him down.
I was engrossed by the story right from the very first page. Dead End Deal is fast-paced and action-packed, and will keep readers in suspense until the very end. Allen Wyler is a brilliant Medical Thriller novelist, whose work I can’t wait to read more of.
I definitely recommend this Dead End Deal, Suspense and Thriller book lovers won’t want to miss this!
Must Read! Highly Recommended!
