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.
Dr. Sandra Glahn teaches writing and gender studies at Dallas Theological Seminary, one of her alma maters. She is the author of the Coffee Cup Bible Study Series and is co-author of nine additional books, including the CBA bestseller and Christy Award finalist, Lethal Harvest. Glahn holds a Ph.D. in aesthetic studies from the University of Texas at Dallas. She is also a blogger for bible.org.
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. Hes 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 books writing style, and the range of scientific information shared at a laypersons level.
