Pharmacy student Jason Rodgers craves a coveted externship at one of the most prestigious sites in all of Virginia.

The Extern tells the back story of the other Jason Rodgers novels so we know where the character comes from! This book has lots of plot tension and a little forbidden romance, as well as an intimate look at the fascinating world of pharmacy. An interesting prequel to the Cyclops books but also a great read on it's own!

Perry has written an interesting story, filled with well-developed characters, originality and credibility. It is fascinating to see what actually goes on in the life of a pharmacist. You go up to the pharmacy, everyone has, and ask for your prescription, but as a customer, that is the extent of the business side that you see. Everything else that is addressed in this book is intriguing and eye-opening. It gives you respect for pharmacists, but Perry also raises some terrifying, but truthful aspects of how the medical practice and major retail pharmacies operate in this day and age as well. This story, while very creative...is fast-paced, but easy to follow and entertaining. If you are a reader of medical thrillers, you may find this one to your liking. The Extern is the prequel to other Jason Rodgers novels in the Cyclops Series by Perry...
