From First, Do No Harm, Dr. L. Jan Eira catapults readers into the gripping continuance of his medical murder mystery. With the release of his new book, Seconds from Revenge, he once again engages readers with medical hero Dr. Jack Norris, whose life is put in danger once again when an old enemy returns—bent on revenge.
Set three years after the harrowing events took place, Seconds from Revenge situates the present life of Dr. Norris, who is now the head of the Cardiology Department at Newton Memorial Hospital, Evansville, Indiana. His family and the hospital are now at peace; however, it wasn’t too long ago when their small city and surrounding counties were assaulted by three executioners.
Several heinous murders had been committed at Newton Memorial using what became known as ‘Rat Poison,’ an experimental drug for heart failure patients with deadly repercussions. With Dr. Norris’ cooperation with the authorities, one of the executioners was killed, the other incarcerated for life, but the third villain – the mastermind known as Simon Lagrange – is still at large. Having escaped the law, Lagrange is now back and looking for vengeance—with Dr. Norris as his object of enmity.
The mystery plunges as Lagrange sabotages Norris’ credibility as a doctor, taking away many innocent lives without remorse. Co-workers of Norris helplessly fall prey to Lagrange’s sinister plan; nobody can be trusted, everyone can be a suspect. Soon, reality becomes a nightmare when an unexpected assault was made on Dr. Norris’ life, nine-thousand feet above the ground.
It was clear that Lagrange would stop at nothing to get him. Is Dr. Norris ready for the worst when he finds himself Seconds from Revenge? An arresting denouement awaits readers as Eira takes them deep into the story, confounding them with unexpected twists and revelations.
