Dead Ringer by Allen Wyler

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

While I don’t read as much fiction these days, I do enjoy a good medical thriller now and then. This one was fast-paced and suspenseful and eerily realistic! The idea of a black market for body parts and cadavers is likely true and makes you think about how many people die as a result of it.
I rated this book 3 1/2 stars. It would have been 4 stars but I felt that the swearing was more excessive than it needed to be. Other than that, it was a great read, drawing the reader into the world of a neurosurgeon whose life is upended when at a medical conference the cadaver’s head being used looks just like his best friend! When he returns home and discovers his friend is missing, he is pulled into the missing persons world where he connects with a cop looking for a missing prostitute. From there the black market of body parts is revealed.
If you like suspense and medical thrillers, you will enjoy this look into the dark side of a mortuary.

*I received a copy of this ebook free from the publisher Astor + Blue in exchange for my review.
