George is bitter. As he should be. Once a household name, George is dying to make a comeback, and death may be the only option left to get the public’s attention. Ask anyone, his life is unraveling at the seams. Meanwhile, his new apprentice is everything he is not.
The enigmatic man his publisher sends to help is young and ambitious, with looks that could kill, and possibly do.
When George discovers that his apprentice’s talent extends beyond fixing broken plots, that his winning formula may, in fact, be a result of making the crimes in his novels come to life, George has to ask himself how much he is willing to overlook to achieve mainstream success.
I am always impressed at how Britney King can churn out so many thrillers and have them be these well-thought-out works of art, and I felt the same way about The Book Doctor: A Psychological Thriller!
The Book Doctor is not going to be for you squeamish readers out there, but if you like the dark, violent, disturbing, and gritty you will love it! This was fast-paced and a super quick read in the way that all of King’s books seem to be, and that is just one of the many things I liked about it. Even though neither George nor Liam are particularity likable, I still managed to develop a bit of a soft spot for George. How I don’t know, but I did!
As of right now, Kill, Sleep, Repeat is still my favorite, but The Book Doctor is a solid psychological thriller that will keep you on your toes, and at the same time keep you hooked until the very last page.
There really isn’t a lot that can be said without giving anything away, but if you are a fan of the enigma that is Britney King, you should really enjoy The Book Doctor. I had many theories while reading and none of them ended up accurate so I have a feeling the end will blow a lot of readers away. Since this is a standalone you could also choose to read it if you haven’t read this author yet. And if you haven’t, what are you waiting for?!
MY RATING: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ / 5
