Rubbernecker by Belinda Bauer
(Excerpt from Goodreads) Life is strange for Patrick Fort; being a medical student with Asperger’s Syndrome doesn’t come without its challenges–and that’s before he is faced with solving a possible murder. Because the body Patrick is examining in anatomy class is trying to tell him all kinds of things. And now he must stay out of danger long enough to unravel the mystery–while he dissects his own evidence.
Patrick Fort is a medical student obsessed with death and he also has Asperger’s. This has caused him tension with his mother and plays a part in this story. We also meet Samuel. He was in a car accident and is now in a coma. Although he is aware of his surroundings he cannot interact with those around him. We follow both men until they meet and their stories take a surprising turn.
This is a good book. I loved Patrick’s story and how he went into medical school to try and find the answers he seeks. I did like Samuel and felt sorry for him, especially when he sees the murder of a fellow patient. What a horrible situation to be in!
If you like great thrillers this is one book that you need to check out. There is great character development and an amazing story. I admit that I have not read a book from Belinda Bauer before but I will make sure to read her other books.
I received Rubbernecker for free in exchange for an honest review.
