The Face Transplant




An epic journey of suspense, murder, and sacrifice




Dr. Matthew MacAulay is a facial transplant surgeon at a prestigious New York hospital. When his friend and mentor, Tom Grabowski, dies under mysterious circumstances, Matthew uncovers his friend’s secret: a new technique that allows perfect facial transplants. No incisions, no scars. Tom was able to accomplish this monumental feat with the help of Alice, a supercomputer robot with almost human abilities. While trying to find the people responsible for murdering Tom, Matthew realizes he is the prime suspect. He must flee for his life with the help of Dr. Sarah Larsson, a colleague and reluctant helper, who has a secret of her own, and Alice, who helps them make sense of a baffling series of seemingly unrelated events. The clues carry Matthew and Sarah around the world. They stumble onto a sinister plot of monumental proportions that leads Matthew all the way to the White House.




The Face Transplant is a powerful medical suspense thriller of the first order. The novel was written by a surgeon who weaves politics, medicine, and espionage into a tightly paced, intelligent thriller.










Excerpt;



Matthew, “Sarah, I know. The tremors, the leg weakness. I put it all together. ALS.”



My Sherlock Holmes at work again.” Sarah laughs.



I know and I don’t care.”



Sarah smiles at Matthew. “Do you know what you’re saying?” “ALS, also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease. A progressive neuro-muscular disorder with no cure. You will stop walking one day, and finally, you will lose control of all your muscles.”



Not bad, Holmes.”



We surgeons aren’t as thick as you think.”



Then you know I don’t have long.” Sarah punches in the code to lock the anesthetic machine.



I don’t care. I need you,” says Matthew.



You know what my life will be very soon, how it is going to end.”



I don’t care. I have to take a chance—I have to live. Give me that chance.”



In the end I would regret doing that to you. I refuse to have you



look after me in the prime of your life. I’m going to be on a ventilator, not able to move any muscle in my body. I’m going to end up being only able to use my eyes. Totally locked in a useless body.”

    1. Medical suspense thrillers appeal to a wide variety of readers, not just the traditional thrill reader. Romance readers like these novels as well, since the relationships that develop between characters who are put in intense situations leads to very fiery liasions. Sarah Larsson, has a secret that threatens everything, she can't tell Matthew..

  2. ALS is a debilitating disease. Sarah has kept this a secret from Matthew in the story. He finally figures it out. Sarah does not want him to spend his life looking after her. It presents a very interesting dilemma. Can caring for a person who is dying be a fulfilling life for the one who is doing the caring. I posed this question since the answer is not at all obvious. Caring for someone you love can be very satisfying, but the person being cared for may feel they are forcing you do that. Is is a very complex subject.

    1. The Face Transplant has characters that are tested in ways we all hope we never are; but it is fun to see how they handle adversity. ALS is certainly a challenge that is difficult to face. It is great to see some people handle this with grace and wisdom.

  10. One of the elements of The Face Transplant that is intriguing is the robot Alice. She is a surgical robot with almost human like qualities. She plays a key role in solving the mystery. It adds another dimension to the story.
