“An unusual quandary is at the axis of this involving whodunit.” US Review of Books "A powerful, top recommendation." Midwest Book Review A brilliant plastic surgeon. A computer guru with a disturbing past. A fireman whose disfiguring burns ignite a chain of long buried secrets. What would you do if you woke up one day looking like a completely different person? After Dr. Thea Donovan performs reconstructive facial surgery on severely injured fireman Malcolm Dean, she is ecstatic with the results. The Reflesh procedure she pioneered with software guru Erik Sorenson far exceeds her expectations. There’s just one problem: the patient doesn’t agree. In fact, the surgery altered his appearance to such an extent that it seems to have changed his personality from a caring, bereaved father and husband, to a man with psychopathic tendencies. Then when a series of unsolved murders point toward Malcolm Dean Thea must confront the possibility that she has created a killer. And as she uncovers evidence to prove her patient’s innocence, she inadvertently reveals a thirty year old murder mystery.

Review:

"An unusual quandary is at the axis of this involving whodunit . . . the pace is brisk, the story entertaining, and the denouement satisfying enough to make this fictional puzzle worth solving." J. Kilgore, Senior Reviewer, US Review of Books "The thought of a Frankenstein creator's unintended result from manipulating life comes to mind as The Jigsaw Man evolves in complexity. What seems to be a murder mystery changes direction to become a medical thriller and becomes something much more, opening a can of ethical worms in the process. As masks come off, literally and figuratively, the plot turns into something even more compelling, on the lines of a Robin Cook medical mystery: replete with powerful protagonists, special interests, and a healthy inspection of underlying motivations. The result is a powerful, top recommendation for readers who relish unpredictable, believable medical murder mysteries fueled by both high technology and solid protagonists." D. Donovan, Senior Reviewer, Midwest Book Review
