A Terrific Short Read Perfect For Halloween––Overdose
This month, Casi’s Crème de la Crème pick is Uvi Poznansky’s newest release, Overdose. A thriller that kept me glued to my seat, Poznansky’s new release lured me in on page one then further enticed me with each page turn, immersing me into a gripping medical thriller––looking over my shoulder as if I was only one step away from the villain. The third book in Poznansky’s captivating series, this story won’t leave readers lost if they read this story first. But should they read this series in order, they’ll be rewarded and stunned at how this USA Today Bestselling Author weaves past characters into this new thrilling saga.
The writer’s first person present style draws the reader into the heroine’s mind as she unravels each clue. Tempted to scream out ‘no, don’t go there’ as if Ash should heed my warning, I rode a rollercoaster with twists and turns all the way to the last page. I read Overdose in one day, but nothing is rushed. Each richly drawn character plays a crucial part and as Ash uncovers the who, why, when, and how of this delicious mystery. And the ending had me wondering how the heroine could possibly be saved in time––and by whom.
Poznansky pulls in current events and high technology in this fast-paced thriller, which gives the story even more appeal. Overdose will snag your interest, lure you in and won’t let go. I look forward to the next book in the series, Ash Suspense Thrillers With A Dash of Romance. I highly recommend Overdose––especially on a cold, spooky night.
Months after recovering from coma, Ash discovers that the man who performed her brain surgery has a questionable medical experience and a dark past, starting with his medical mission in India ten years ago and ending just recently, with his wife’s suicide. Should Ash expose him, at the risk of becoming vulnerable to his revenge?
In an attempt to learn more, Ash goes on a date with him. When the waitress drops a pink cellphone into her hand, she is hit by a bullet. On the cellphone are his wife’s last words. “Perhaps you have the urge to shut me off, or at least to ignore what I’m about to say. But listen you must, because even if you don’t believe it, you’re already much too close to danger… Neil is my undoing. Make sure he isn’t yours.”
