Giveaway -- The Last Surgeon by Michael Palmer

Jillian Coates' little sister tragically died and the police ruled it a suicide. Her little sister was her only family left and Jillian is crushed. Jillian cannot grasp the police conclusion and is haunted by her sister's death. Jillian knew that it was not possible for her little sister to have committed suicide and vows that she will find out what really happened.

Dr. Nick Garrity was a surgeon in Afghanistan and is suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder after returning to the States after a painful and betraying incident. Nick is desperately trying to find his best friend that was by his side in Afghanistan that has completely disappeared.

As Jillian investigates her sister's death, she is led to Nick because of a stack of comic books she found in her sister's closet. They discover together that the things that they both search for are connected, in a pretty crazy and disturbing way.

This book (it will be released on February 16th) is a fascinating medical thriller that has a very interesting story line. I really enjoyed the story and I was very intrigued. However, my final rating of this book dropped because of one chapter and a few other parts that I felt were completely crude and unnecessary for the story. In my opinion, there were lewd parts that distracted from the story and made me not enjoy the book as a whole as much as I would have had they been left out. That is just my opinion, so I am going to give it 3 stars.
