Overview

"…….a thriller that opens along the lines of Robin Cook; but with more social and psychological issues, which are explored in greater, more satisfying detail. Its progression from a seemingly singular experience to humanity’s greatest catastrophe creates a fine cross-genre experience between medical novel, thriller, and sci-fi that keeps readers on their toes……"D. Donovan, Midwest Book Review

Gabriel, Rachel, Lester, Adonis and Charlotte; fictional characters whose lives mirror modern day challenges. Who will defy the odds? What will happen to bring them together?

Novelist and Gastroenterologist Michael Weisberg, M.D. crafted the idea for In The End from a routine procedure. Before putting patients to sleep for their colonoscopies, he asks them if they have any questions. Many comically reply, "Doc, what's the meaning of life?" He always replies that this question cannot be answered because there is no one meaning to life, but instead the question should be, what gives meaning to your individual life?
