Primordial by David L Sobel ~ a Review

by Susan Roberts

"'People are dying...getting killed.  I have given you eight murders, but there are likely many more.  I have also given you the next probable five.  Those people, they are targets.'" (p 14)

December 2020; StoneFalls; 978-1736303504
ebook, print (274 pages); medical thriller
is one of the most suspenseful medical novels that I've read in a long time.  It brings together the experiments of two doctors, decades apart, both searching for the physical location of the soul.  The book was exciting to read and just when I thought that I had it all figured out, something new happened and I realized how wrong I was.  The tension stays high until the surprising ending.

1944 Poland - A doctor is deep into his research to find the location of the soul in the human brain.  Since he is doing his research at a concentration camp, he has lots of prisoners to use for his study - it's no loss to him that his experiments cause pain and death,  He has one Jewish helper until a young boy is rescued from the gas chamber to work for him.  Ezra is only seven but he realized that working in the operating room and seeing people die is far preferable to certain death in the camp.

Present Day New York - A man approaches hospital attorney Jonas and tells him that he sees a pattern in some of the hospital deaths and is suspicious that there is a killer among them.  Jonas finds two interns to help him look into this issue and the further they go with their investigation, the more personal danger they are all in 

This debut novel is a very suspenseful page-turner that is difficult to put down. The main characters are all well-written and believable.  There's a lot of medical jargon but nothing too difficult for a non-medical person to understand.  Do yourself a favor and read this roller coaster ride of a novel.
