people responsible for murdering Tom, Matthew realizes he is the prime suspect.
He must flee for his life with the help of Dr. Sarah Larsson, a colleague and
reluctant helper, who has a secret of her own, and Alice , who helps them make sense of a
baffling series of seemingly unrelated events. The clues carry Matthew and
Sarah around the world. They stumble onto a sinister plot of monumental
proportions that leads Matthew all the way to the White House. Alice
The Face Transplant is a powerful medical suspense thriller of the first order. The novel was written by a surgeon who weaves politics, medicine, and espionage into a tightly paced, intelligent thriller.
Matthew, “Sarah, I know. The tremors, the leg weakness. I put it all together. ALS.”
“My Sherlock Holmes at work again.” Sarah laughs.
“I know and I don’t care.”
Sarah smiles at Matthew. “Do you know what you’re saying?” “ALS, also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease. A progressive neuro-muscular disorder with no cure. You will stop walking one day, and finally, you will lose control of all your muscles.”
“Not bad, Holmes.”
“We surgeons aren’t as thick as you think.”
“Then you know I don’t have long.” Sarah punches in the code to lock the anesthetic machine.
“I don’t care. I need you,” says Matthew.
“You know what my life will be very soon, how it is going to end.”
“I don’t care. I have to take a chance—I have to live. Give me that chance.”
“In the end I would regret doing that to you. I refuse to have you
look after me in the prime of your life. I’m going to be on a ventilator, not able to move any muscle in my body. I’m going to end up being only able to use my eyes. Totally locked in a useless body.”
