Author: Allen Wyler
Genre: Fiction

EAN: 9781938231124

A neurosurgeon takes on a body-snatching syndicate in this medical thriller “in the tradition of Robin Cook” (Joseph Finder).
With his international reputation, Seattle neurosurgeon Dr. Lucas McCrae is often asked to speak around the world about delicate surgeries. While giving a demonstration before doctors in Hong Kong, he slips the cloth off a cadaver’s head—only to see the face of his best friend.
McCrae races back home to discover that his friend went missing not long ago, and may have been murdered by a ring of body snatchers. Desperate for justice, McCrae forms an unlikely alliance with a hard-nosed female cop and a gang member out for revenge. But none of them is ready for the truth—or what some people will do to keep it hidden.
“Wyler takes us behind the scenes to show us things the medical establishment doesn’t want us to see. Dead Ringer builds a high-speed plot on a startling but all-too-plausible premise. This is the stuff nightmares are made of.” —Joseph Finder, New York Times–bestselling author of The Switch
