Product Description

In the midst of researching water-submersion victimes, Dr. Jeremy Cramer makes a breaththrough discovery in AIDS research, one that throws him into the middle of a media circus. But as quickly as it started, the attention becomes more and more negative when he infects a colleague accidentally and his negligence causes his son to contract a life-threatening illness. These newfound problems pose a threat and a challenge to his formula, and his ethics. During the battle to repair his marriage and his family, he's forced to decide between the life of a young donor and his own son... what will his choice be?

Publisher's Description

Dr. Jeremy Cramer is a young doctor on the verge of a cutting-edge medical discovery. But his research is derailed when Cramer's son is infected with a rare fatal disease. Now as he races against time to save his child's life, Cramer will make a decision that could shatter his career.

Informed Consent is a pulse-pounding medical thriller that complements the current popularity of hospital dramas. With non-stop suspense, snappy dialogue, and witty humor, author Sandra Glahn takes a look at some of today's hot-button issues through this provocative story.

Author Bio

Sandra Glahn ThM teaches journalism, creative writing, and the role of women in ministry at Dallas Theological Seminary, her alma mater. She is the author of the Coffee-Cup Bible Series and is co-author of eight additional books, including the CBA bestseller and Christy Award finalist, Lethal Harvest. Glahn is currently pursuing a Ph.D. in aesthetic studies at the University of Texas at Dallas. She serves on the board of the Evangelical Press Association, the Dallas Christian Medical/Dental Associations, the women's board of, and is the fiction panelist for The Writers View.

Medical doctrines and ethics, intense relationships, drama and disease; if that’s what you’re looking for, then Sandra Glahn’s Informed Consent is what you want. Jeremy Cramer, an intelligent medical researcher, is on the verge of a breakthrough involving the thymus, a part of the body used for bodily defense against disease. Unfortunately, he is caught in a dilemma. His marriage and relationships with his kids are collapsing. On top of that a female coworker and friend, Devin, has contracted HIV through an accidental mishap, and when Jeremy moves forward to complete his goals, he’s left with a tough decision. Does he work to develop better medicines for HIV and AIDS, or does he continue his current research for answers to questions he has had all his life? And what will he do about the painful fact that his marriage is failing and Devin feels that he’s the culprit for her condition?

Glahn uses a lot of imagery, including plenty of similes and analogies. However, she uses a lot of dashes in her writing, and whereas dashes help bring dialogue and thoughts to life they can also draw attention away from the story if used too often. The relationships between the characters seem very accurate to those of the real, modern-day world. The author has done well in this regard.

Throughout the story, Jeremy manages to juggle crisis after crisis fairly well, from furthering his progress in his work to repairing his damaged relationships and healing emotional wounds. He’s my favorite character in the book along with an advisor named Barlow, whose thoughts on medical ethics are strong and relate to the title of the story.

This is a solid story. It has a lot of drama, and it deals very closely with the emotions, relationships, and the problems we face. Readers will appreciate the pacing of the narrative, the book’s writing style, and the range of scientific information shared at a layperson’s level.
