“DON’T LET THE DOCTOR THINK YOU’RE ILL.”
A heavy nighttime blizzard forces Gerald Bitteson into the first building he finds, but the man he meets may be even colder than the storm he came in from. Gerald quickly finds out that Dr. C. L. Blood is no ordinary doctor, and the two have an ugly history even Blood himself doesn’t realize. But could this affable doctor really be the fraudster Gerald thinks? It may cost him his life to find out.
“What a great story! I knew it was going to be suspenseful but it really got me…” —Jessa Forest, author of The Slaughter Chronicles
“OMG I LOVED THIS STORY!! I loved finding out about this real-life—but obscure—historical figure…what a terrifying ‘doctor’! You really brought him to life, and I wouldn’t be surprised if your fictionalized parts actually happened. So well-written and suspenseful.” —Amber Sayge, reviewer
