Review at Title Tracker

Sandra Glahn’s Informed Consent delivers a fast-paced medical thriller that sharply weaves cutting-edge medical science and good storytelling to produce a book that engages the reader both intellectually and emotionally. With satisfying characters who face past deaths—both physical ones and the daily dying of dreams and expectations—and the slim hope of present resurrections, Glahn explores life-changing themes and life-challenging dilemmas. Expect to stay up too late reading it. I did. — David Gregory, bestselling author of Dinner with a Perfect Stranger

"An intelligent thriller with shocking twists and a very satisfying ending!" — Ginger Garrett, award-winning author of Chosen and Dark Hour

“Taut with emotional suspense, author Sandra Glahn catapults readers into the world of medical ethics, exploring the desperate lengths folks will go to find a cure. With expertly drawn characters, a Grisham-paced plot, and intelligent writing, Informed Consent is everything I like about medical thrillers.” Mary DeMuth, speaker and author, Watching the Tree Limbs

Informed Consent is a wonderful and accurate portrayal of struggles in the medical profession. Guilt, doubt, fear and pride are palpable as the ultimate decision is faced—an excellent example of the complexity seen in modern biomedical ethics. Richard L. Voet, M.D., bioethicist

I was hooked from the prologue. In her first solo novel, Glahn master-wordsmiths a must-read plot combination: a spicy dose of controversial ethics and deception, mixed in with heart-wrenching drama, which excels as a true nail-biting thriller. I loved Informed Consent!”  — Lesa Engelthaler, author, Dallas Morning News book reviewer

“I rarely read novels, but this quest makes for an engaging page turner. I recommended it to my wife and I recommend it to you!”   Darrell Bock, best-selling author, research professor of New Testament studies, Dallas Theological Seminary

“Sandra Glahn's Informed Consent is an intelligent, believable and expertly written mystery that will keep readers on pins and needles.” Anita K. Palmer, professional editor, The Strong Word / Communication Services
