After jannie develops Lyme symptoms the man states his demand--or her daughter will be next. Jannie must convince her husband to publicly change his opinion about Lyme.

Publisher's Description

Torn from the front lines of medical debate and the author's own experience with Lyme Disease, Over the Edge is riveting fiction, full of twists and turns—and powerful truths about today's medical field.  

Janessa McNeil’s husband, Dr. Brock McNeil, a researcher and professor at Stanford University's Department of Medicine, specializes in tick-borne diseases—especially Lyme. For years he has insisted that Chronic Lyme Disease doesn't exist. Even as patients across the country are getting sicker, the committee Brock chairs is about to announce its latest findings—which will further seal the door shut for Lyme treatment.  

One embittered man sets out to prove Dr. McNeil wrong by giving him a close-up view of the very disease he denies. The man infects Janessa with Lyme, then states his demand: convince her husband to publicly reverse his stand on Lyme—or their young daughter will be next. 

But Janessa's marriage is already rocky. She's so sick she can hardly move or think. And her husband denies she has Lyme at all.   

Welcome to the Lyme wars, Janessa.

Endorsements/Reviews:

" . . . a taut, heartbreaking thriller . . . Collins is a fine writer who knows how to both horrify readers and keep them turning pages. She'll gain new readers with this one . . ."

Publishers Weekly

"Over the Edge provides validation to any person who suffers from the long-term effects of Lyme Disease. While the story is based on Ms. Collins' own life experience, she builds a tense and dramatic novel that illustrates how a person can fall into the web of misdiagnosis and ineffective treatment."

New York Journal of Books

"This book stayed with me long after I put it down. Not only was it a page-turner, but the storyline about Lyme Disease was fascinating and eye-opening. I think Over the Edge will raise awareness about this horrible disease, and validate those who suffer with it."

Terri Blackstock, author of Predator and Intervention

"A frightening and all-too-real scenario. Very timely and meaningful book." (4 stars)

RT Book Reviews

"Over the Edge is an excellent mystery. [It] actively portrays the patient with the myriad symptoms seen in acute or chronic Lyme."

Dr. Nick S. Harris, president/CEO, IGeneX, Inc.

"Brandilyn Collins continues to impress . . . From start to finish, Over the Edge is a fantastic, multi-faceted novel."

The Christian Manifesto

"Five stars! Highly recommended: A real life witch-hunt scarier than any vampire or zombie tale . . . the parts of the book laying out spiritual phenomena were excellent, indeed among the best I've read."

Your Shelf Life

"Thrilling medical suspense . . . Over the Edge pits science against truth and will render readers shocked at what they learn."

Fresh Fiction

"Deep characters, an amazing plot . . . an absolute must read."

Read Great Fiction

"In this thrilling tale of vengeance . . . the pace is relentless, the suspense ramping up to greater levels as the pages fly by."

Mysterious Reviews

"The suspense is great! Reading a fictional tale about what every maligned, marginalized, and misunderstood Lyme patient has dreamt about in their darkest hours is such a huge mental come-uppance . . . a novel that hits a bull's eye in safely channeling the frustrations of the entire community of Lyme patients."

SpiroChicks.com

"This is my first Collins book; however it won't be my last! Her warm writing, true-to-life characterizations, compelling plot lines and taut suspense have made me a fan!"

Publisher's Weekly

Bestselling author Collins, known for her Seatbelt Suspense, has a new publisher and a new mission--education--this time out. She taps into her personal battle with Lyme disease to create a taut, heartbreaking thriller. Janessa McNeil is the target for a deranged stalker intent on getting to her husband, Dr. Brock McNeil, a researcher who insists that chronic Lyme disease doesn't exist. His stance puts Lyme sufferers at the mercy of insurance companies who won't pay for long-term treatment and doctors who refuse to treat Lyme patients. Janessa, infected with Lyme, must battle the stalker's demands, her husband's denial that she's sick, his infidelity, and her enervating symptoms, while she struggles to protect her daughter, who may be the stalker's next victim. Collins is a fine writer who knows how to both horrify readers and keep them turning pages. She'll gain new readers with this one, all of whom will begin searching for the ticks that cause Lyme as soon as they put the book down. (May) Copyright 2011 Reed Business Information.
