Description

"A well-crafted, fast-paced medical crime thriller that will put you in the middle of the ER, holding your breath. The plot will unfold and suck you right in. And, as a bonus, there's a great dog!" –Jeffrey Jay Levin, author of Watching

AJ Docker (Doc) and his guard dog, Banshee, move to a small town in the mountains for a slower-paced lifestyle. Doc settles into the idyllic setting with a rewarding job and enriching colleagues, as well as with a romantic interest who leads him to contemplate marriage. His new life seems perfect until he begins to uncover the town's dirty secrets. A serial killer hunts in the woods, and dirty money flows throughout the town.

Doc and Banshee win allies in their search for truth, but they also make powerful enemies. These sophisticated figures who control the town's economy will stop at nothing to end Doc's threat to expose them. Doc must fight for his freedom, and even for his life to escape.

Faulty Bloodline, a fast-paced thriller, continues the adventures of Doc and Banshee that began in Last Patient of the Night. Gary Gerlacher's writing will keep you up late into the night as you want to keep reading the next page.

AJ Docker (Doc) and his guard dog, Banshee, move to a small town in the mountains for a slower-paced lifestyle. Doc settles into the idyllic setting with a rewarding job and enriching colleagues, as well as with a romantic interest who leads him to contemplate marriage. His new life seems perfect until he begins to uncover the town's dirty secrets. A serial killer hunts in the woods, and dirty money flows throughout the town! Unfortunately Doc and Banshee make some bad enemies! This leads to all kinds of trouble for the dynamic duo! This book had suspense, intrigue, action packed, murder, mystery, serial killer, romance, heartache and heartbreak! A great who done it and some crazy twists and turns! The storyline was very interesting and kept me glued to my Kindle! I definitely recommend reading this book as it was well worth reading! Thank you Netgalley and the publisher for sharing this book with me!

A definite page turner. It does say "thriller," but initially I thought it might be just a tad too thrilling for me. I am so glad I was able to go beyond the first couple chapters to finally get to Dr. Docker and Banshee. Wonderful pair and I do want to read of their prior adventures and the upcoming one in Las Vegas. Thanks to the publisher for providing a copy via NetGalley. My review is voluntary.

Gripping,
Faulty Bloodline by Gary Gerlacher is totally gripping, well written, and entertaining. It grabs you from the 1st page to the end. The story fallows the main character Dr. AJ Docker (Doc), and his dog Banshee (Belgian Malinois) at a 3 month job at a hospital in a small town in Montana.. There they meet a bunch of very interesting characters leading to many twists, and turns. Great flow, fast paced, and thourougly delightful. It had my attention from the 1st page.

Itinerant emergency room doctor, “Doc”, and his trusted retired police dog, Banshee, have moved Northwest on a new assignment Soon they find themselves in the middle of everything. Doc finds a new girlfriend, Banshee is the hero in a scheme shooting and the discoverer of human remains on the edge of “The Fulton Forty” a ranch that has some issues of its own with its dysfunctional owners. Lots of action, plots, and sub-plots. Already looking forward to the next book in the series.
