ABOUT THIS BOOK
Not all doctors are heroes . . .
Renowned surgeon Michael Trenchard locks his office door and prepares for a relaxing evening - Wagner on the sound system, a fine Scotch to hand. A knock at the door heralds the arrival of the person he most wants to see - the person who excites him more than anyone else. But what follows will turn his dreams into a living nightmare . . . for he will be discovered later that night in a locked-in coma, the victim of an auto-erotic asphyxiation.
Can this really be an accident? It is left to Dr Kash Devan, Trenchard's young protégé, to uncover the truth. What he discovers is chilling: in his ruthless pursuit of wealth and success Trenchard has left a trail of wrecked lives behind him. Which of his victims hated him so much they wanted not only his life, but also his reputation ruined?
Engrossing, dramatic, and with plenty of twists and turns, CONTROL by Hugh Montgomery is an excellent medical drama that is perfect for all lovers of psychological thriller fiction.
Dr. Kash Devan is excited for his future and working under the highly esteemed Michael Trenchard is only going to help him learn and become better. But looks can be deceiving and when Michael Trenchard is discovered almost dead in a very compromising position, it soon becomes obvious that he didn't know anything about this man and not everyone liked him. But something doesn't sit right with Kash and as he begins to dig deeper he starts to suspect that what happened to Michael may not have been self-inflicted. Somebody did this to Trenchard, somebody wanted to destroy him, and they will do whatever it takes to finish the job. Can Kash figure out the truth before someone else is hurt? And can he live with the truth about his mentor?
I thoroughly enjoyed this medical thriller which wasn't brimming with confusing technical jargon but still made the hospital care setting come alive. Kash is a likeable character if a little naive at times, but I enjoyed watching him unravel the truth and there were moments which really surprised me.
CONTROL by Hugh Montgomery is an edgy thriller that worked and I look forward to more from this author.
