The Surgeon's Wife is split into three parts. Vivid illustrations on the book cover and also preceding the text for each part perfectly complement this engaging story. The book is told from multiple viewpoints which provides valuable insight into the feelings, perceptions, and motives of each of the pertinent characters in the story, and how they are affected by the circumstances in which they find themselves.

Mike Boudreaux is the chief of surgery at a prominent hospital in New Orleans, and he is called upon to make tough decisions about his partner, Clayton Otherson, who is making life-threatening mistakes in surgery. Mike owes the success of his career to Clayton and wants to help his colleague and friend, a distinguished and influential bariatric surgeon, avoid suspension by the hospital operating room committee. Mike can impact decisions made by the committee since he is the chair, and Clayton believes that Mike should make any complaints about his competency as a surgeon go away. However, the safety of patients is Mike's top priority. When the committee puts some restrictions in place that affect Clayton in his surgeries of obese patients, this action puts up barriers in Mike and Clayton's friendship.

Book Review: A Burning in the Darkness by A P McGrath

A Burning in the Darkness by A P McGrath
A P McGrath successfully unites the most important elements of civilization between the covers of A Burning in the Darkness. The pages of the book offer a tasteful blend of crime and romance under the seal of Catholic faith.

At a large international airport, a small confessional room is filled with secrets. Father Michael Kieh, who is responsible with hearing these burdens and offering forgiveness when it is due, finds himself lured into an intricate web of conspiracy. The spiders forming the web are important men of the society and their victims are whoever endangers their status or brilliant future. Ruthless predators, they hunt under the cover of law and bureaucracy, using the system to their own advantage.

Basically, two institutions - the church and the justice system - test their influence over one another and people. Each offers a certain set of tools which can serve the purpose given by the one who wields these. Father Kieh becomes the keeper of some critical information, but due to the fact that it was obtained via confession, he is forced to test the limits of church regulation and his own morality.

Review of the Thriller Novel:
In New York Times bestselling author James Rollins’s books, the information is given in such a way that, can not believe when reading. But surprising way always that is truth. The author rarely took refuge in the imagination. However, in this book the information given to him to say that compared to the previous reading the book was little too imaginative. However, it seems to me that its thrill has increased. And it’s a thriller fiction, so finally it is to succeed if a few hours entertain to the reader like a roller coaster. From that side Excavation is 100 percent successful.
