The American Society of Hematology describes more then 10 common blood disorders that could lead to a person’s death. How would they explain a body that continues to bleed after dying?
In “Bad Blood”, hematologists Dr. Andy Friedman and Dr. Leila Baker assist detectives to determine the reason for this odd condition. During their search for the cause of the deaths and persons involved, Dr. Friedman and Dr. Baker discover as much about themselves as they do about the mysterious deaths. In addition to the intense medical mystery afoot, the book also involves a unique love story and challenging questions about modern day social issues.
Author Guy Young uses his work as a pediatric hematologist as inspiration for the plot and characters presented by the book. As a respected physician and member of numerous professional medical societies, Young explores issues of social injustice in the delivery of health care to create an excruciating moral dilemma.
“This book asks readers a question of morality and encourages people to extrapolate these themes beyond the pages of text,” Young said. “While fictitious, the issues addressed in ‘Bad Blood’ apply to life today.”
In this high-pressure book of mysterious deaths and enamored doctors, “Bad Blood” will keep readers’ pulse fluttering page after page. The thriller aims straight for the jugular and murmurs societal themes throughout.
