Doctor Peter Branstead’s neurology department at St. Mark’s Hospital in New York’s picturesque Greenwich Village is flooded with a series of critically ill vagrants exhibiting identical symptoms. Confused and agitated upon admission, they rapidly progress into convulsions, cardiac arrest, and death. The deaths are too methodical to be a coincidence, but how—and why—are they being killed?
Peter’s investigation leads him into a dark underworld of international intrigue and into the center of a plot to destroy the president of the Ukraine, Anatoly Labrinska. Peter learns that his patients have been given a mysterious drug that is also being administered to President Labrinska. But tracking Peter’s every move is a savage Ukranian Mafia killer—an assassin so ruthless that the most vicious criminals on two continents live in fear of his wrath.
UnputdownableReviewed in the United States on September 18, 2009
I read this book at the suggestion of my husband, and I was not disappointed. Mr. Snider’s characters are unforgettable, and his book is unputdownable. This book has everything… action, drama, thrills, and loads of suspense, and it’s filled with lots of little twists. I would recommend it to anyone who just loves a book that keeps you on the edge of your seat! Just be advised that once you get into this book, you will not be able to put it back down very easily! I passed up dinner and my favorite TV shows, and several hours of sleep to finish it, and I don’t regret a minute of it! My husband thought he would have to go and buy new socks if I didn’t stop reading Brain Warp, and do the laundry heheheheh, it’s that good!
