I placed the picture above and then wondered if everyone would remember the typewriter. That reminded me of a Last Man Standing episode where the middle daughter, Mandy, was restricted from using her electronic devices until she completed her History paper. She needed a good grade on it because she was failing. Mandy found the old typewriter and later told her mother she’d done the paper and typed it up but was still waiting for it to print. 😀 Now on to the review.

Solid 5 Stars. With each book, the Gavin Shawlens series get better and I can’t wait to read the next one. “Everything to Lose” is everything you want in a medical thriller: from adventure to intrigue to mystery. There’s so much going on with plots and subplots, yet the author, Gordon Bickerstaff, keeps it all straight and moving forward to a satisfying end.
Up next, The Black Fox! Can’t wait. Already purchased and added to my reading list. Highly recommended.
