by Barbara Ebel, M.D.
Under the auspices of a stellar attending doctor, medical student Annabel Tilson flourishes on her psychiatry rotation where Victor Blake is the first patient safely ensconced in her care. While other complex and unexpected patients come under the psychiatry team’s care and Annabel dabbles in her own risky behavior, Victor is ready for discharge and is sent home. In the coming week after her star patient is given his freedom, however, Annabel and her mentor have no idea about the harrowing cascade of events taking place.
Readers beware: this chilling psychiatric patient will impact them all.
Please enjoy DEADLY DELUSIONS which is Book Two in the medical and personal adventures of medical student Annabel Tilson. Book One is DEAD STILL. Each book is also a standalone novel.
Annabel’s novels are a spinoff from her father’s series, The Dr. Danny Tilson Novels, especially Book Four – Secondary Impact. Those books are:
Book One: Operation Neurosurgeon
Book Two: Silent Fear: a Medical Mystery (also an audiobook)
Book Three: Collateral Circulation: a Medical Mystery (also an audiobook)
Book Four: Secondary Impact suspense/thriller
Victor swung open the refrigerator door and stared at a dwindling choice of food. He plucked the milk off the shelf, unscrewed the cap, and took a sniff. The ‘best used by’ stamp on the plastic container showed seven days ago. That smelled correct. How could he go buy groceries when his days were now packed with things to do?
Since it was Friday, he didn’t have a medical appointment or have to work but why waste time by going to the store? He strained his ears for a while, specifically listening for footsteps, a walker, or anything from the floor above. Perhaps he should bum some food from his mother. There was something she was supposed to be giving him, too, but he couldn’t remember the details. Nah, he said to himself, he didn’t want to see his old lady. There was something now more important on his plate.
He went back into his disheveled bedroom and rummaged around in the covers. When he located his cell phone, he sat on the edge of a chair and began texting. Luckily, the battery still had enough charge and he plugged in the number Orange had given him at the end of Wednesday’s session.
This is an invitation, he wrote. Come over any time today. We can hang out and you’ll like Whatever. He finished with his address and clarification of which entrance to use.
The book has a great premise. A young new doctor having to do a psychiatric rotation. The author obviously did research as the terms seem appropriate and accurate. Victor Blake seems off and there are many clues at the beginning that something will happen with him. The writing, for the most part, draws you in. There are a few times the writing seems pedantic or unnecessary, but all in all, it kept the pages turning. I’d give this book a 4/5 stars.
