IMPLANT. SPECIAL EDITION.
by F. Paul Wilson.
This one will keep you page-turning on those long nights. --USA Today.A taut, battle-of-wits medical thriller that turns on vengeance. --Publishers Weekly.
The smoothness with which Wilson develops the plot, the fact that all the major characters are believable human beings, and the mounting excitement as the pieces of a murderous puzzle fall into place should keep the reader rapt to the last page. --Booklist.
This suspenseful medical thriller has complex, liable characters, an intriguing background, and it raises important questions by pitting self-serving bureaucrats against unethical physicians. Definitely a cut above most. --Library Journal. Believable medical suspense…Wilson’s most sensible, reined-in plot so far features an attractive and well-spoken villain whose warped take on things is understandable, if not justified….A terrific story. --Kirkus Reviews.
