About the Author

Dr. John Benedict, husband and father of three sons, graduated cum laude from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute and entered post-graduate training at Penn State University College of Medicine. There, he completed medical school, internship,
anesthesia residency and a cardiac anesthesia fellowship. He currently works as an anesthesiologist in a busy private practice in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania.
Dr. Benedict has been writing stories since high school, but his writing was put on hold to pursue a medical education and start a family. Finally, after a 15-year pause, he returned to the keyboard to scratch the writing itch again and thus Adrenaline, his first novel-a gritty medical thriller with a realism borne of actual experience-was born.

Adrenaline was published in 2005 by SterlingHouse and rapidly became a regional bestseller, spread solely by word-of-mouth. In 2007, Adrenaline rose to #17 on the Amazon medical thriller bestseller ranking.
Besides creating scary stories, the hallmark of Dr. Benedict's writing is genuine medical authenticity-a rare commodity in thriller fiction these days. He draws on his 25+ years of experience as a board-certified anesthesiologist to infuse his writing with a realism that renders it both vivid and frightening. As one of only a handful of anesthesiologists throughout the country writing fiction, he gives readers a taste of what really goes on in the operating room, the human drama inherent in this high-stress, high stakes environment where lives are saved and sometimes regrettably lost. Readers will find out what it's like to hold someone's life in their hands, as the author provides an illuminating glimpse into the fascinating, but poorly understood realm of anesthesia.

This sequel to Adrenaline, surpassed my expectations.  I really enjoyed the first book and was wary when I picked up the sequel  because it spoke of demons and the supernatural, not my preference for reading material.  I was pleasantly surprised.  Dr. Benedict continued to build suspense and fold in interesting pieces of medical procedure.  Again, the characters were well developed and made me really care about what was happening.  Dr. Landry, from the first book, continued to hold my interest to the end.  I thoroughly enjoyed this sequel, though it would read just as well on it’s own.
