*I received this copy from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.My rating on this book is undecided, something from 2.5 to 3 Stars but sorry, I cannot be any more generous. This is not because it’s an extremely detestable book which should be burnt to death, no. Second Chance by David Perry is a fairly good thriller which could have been a lot better if more attention was paid towards few, simple tweaks.My copy had quite a few spelling and phrasing mistakes, I hope they were corrected be [...]
Written by a local Yorktown, VA author, this mystery is filled with local lore and references to streets and locations I frequently travel. Well written, kept my interest to the end, and a fun storyline. Worth the read. For locals, David Perry attends local markets to sign and sell his books.

Alex has a personal reason to want to find it, as his wife is terminally ill in hospital.It took me several months of trying to read Second Chance before getting past the first few chapters, as the story is not that gripping to begin with.

Review copied from my blog ineedthatbookIt's taken my quite a while to read this, I think it's been weeks which (if you read my blog) you'll know is quite unusual especially considering this isn't exactly a lengthy novel. The novel starts off quite well, it seems like the standard mystery that I expected from reading the blurb, mysterious patient deaths, a suicide and possible someone behind it all. Later things started getting a bit more unusual, more like sci-fi than mystery which I can live w [...]
Local Virginia novel. Very hard to believe.
Loved the plot!Alex is sure that something is happening in the hospital he works for as a pharmacist. There are too many deaths that have unusual bruising on the ribs. IV bags with unusual liquid in them. He soon discovers that one of his employees has developed a serum that help saves lives. The problem is that this drug was tested on live humans who died. Now he has to find this solution to save his dying wife. Three clues will not only lead him the the formula but the last does ever made. It [...]
The plot was filled with so many unnecessary details, it felt like I was reading a story that an elementary kid devised from his imagination and decided to put into a novel. The characters and events involved were very fictional and I found it hard to be absorbed and finish the book quickly as it lacked any suspense. I cannot imagine a group of people - lawyer, former SEAL, pharmacist, doctor, one with a jet, a tow truck driver with a boatload of knowledge on American History, being friends. It [...]
I was given this book as an ARC from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.Interesting dilemma, if you were given the formula that would change the health industry as we know it and if there were only one dose to use.would you use it for you terminally ill wife, or save the life of a child you only just met??? This is what Alex Benedict has to choose. The story takes several twists and turns from an ordinary pharmacist's day at the hospital to a scavenger hunt that leads to clues that at th [...]
Suspend belief and enjoy this story. While filled with medical and pharmaceutical jargon that is not defined, the reader can still get the jist of this book. The search for the special formula that will cure any disease and prolong life is not a new theme, but it takes a different twist here as the searchers compete with one another with deadly consequences within the hospital setting where they work. The story gets a little bogged down at times, but there is enough action to keep the reader int [...]
A solid suspense thriller with perhaps a little too much medical explanation and way too much concocted coincidence. I saw the ending coming, but it was written well enough to make me emotional about it. I could envision this becoming another "National Treasury" movie. I found it hard to get invested in the characters. They all lacked depth and were super stereotypes. It was a quick read, but had little lasting effect.
I received a ARC from NetGalley of this book.There is not many books that keep me up reading all night but this one I could not put down it had my interest from the vey first page.This is the best i have read so far of this year. Looking forward the next book from Mr Perry. Shame I could not give more stars than five.
A fast paced thriller. Great, well developed characters. I hope a sequel is in the works.
