“Now this is the way to write a medical thriller…one you can’t put down and one
that isn’t overloaded with medical jargon for those readers who aren’t members of the
medical profession. Since the author, Frank J. Edwards, practices emergency medicine,
it’s comfortable reading Reap, knowing that the medical emergencies depicted are
realistic. Now, when Edwards infuses his medical expertise into a plot centered around
a ground-breaking and history-making medical breakthrough…which is being pushed
by a powerful secret organisation focused on the huge financial gains to be made and,
simultaneously, is opposed by a fanatical religious group…innocent people start
“Dr. Jack Forester, head of the emergency department, and his former investigative
reporter wife, Zellie, find themselves and their young infant caught in the middle of two
destructive conspiracies. While police and the FBI search for the terrorist behind a
fatal bomb blast in the hospital, Zellie, trying to find out what happened to a good
friend’s lover, unwittingly becomes the target of both the religious bombing fanatic and
Reap, the secret organization. At a pace that never slows down once, the plot and subplots
intertwine, and readers scrounge for clues to the identities and motivations of the
real perps. Jack Forester desperately tries to locate both his kidnapped wife and baby.
Bodies fall. Another bomb is successfully planted, and readers skip pages racing to that
last page to solve the many riddles behind Reap.
“It’s utterly satisfying to read a well-thought out and well-executed thriller like Reap.
Don’t be surprised if, after doing so, you decide to see what else Frank
J. Edwards has written. There are several books, but the one preceding this one, and
also centered on Dr. Jack Forester and Zellie is Final Mercy, which received rave
reviews from both Kirkus and Readers Favorite. You might want to add both of these
fine books to your summer reading list.”
