‘The Patient’ is the latest book by Jane Shemilt.
When Rachel meets Luc, the attraction is instant. But she is a doctor, and he is her patient. She gives him the drugs he needs – but in doing so, risks everything. And when a secret is exposed, they’re both in the firing line. Not all patients are telling the truth.
The latest book by Jane is the another intoxicating thriller that pulls you in from the first page.
The story is seen through the perspective of GP Rachel Goodchild who meets handsome architect Luc when he has suicidal thoughts and he comes to her surgery for help. She is drawn to Luc and when him and his wife move in the area, Rachel has to deal with seeing him on a regular basis and their relationship becomes much more than professional.
If you’re a fan of domestic noir, then look no further as this book has everything to keep you hooked. From the first page, the story builds with tension mounting with each page. Rachel is a nice character who cares for others. Her marriage is a routine and she wishes that she had a closer relationship with her daughter Lizzie. Luc gives her what she’s lacking in life, attention, sex and excitement and this does make for salacious reading in parts. Luc is mysterious, brooding and sexy and whisks Rachel away from the norm.
The story flows back and forth in time which makes for dramatic reading as you try to piece together the in-between.
Atmospheric and riddled with suspense, ‘The Patient’ is a cleverly plotted story. Perfect for fans of psychological thrillers and procedural dramas, this book will satisfy many palates!
You can buy ‘The Patient’ from Amazon and is available to buy from good bookshops.
