Pharmacy student Jason Rodgers craves a coveted externship at one of the most prestigious sites in all of Virginia. He sits in his beat-up Honda contemplating how his future will change if he can impress the demanding preceptor and land one of the few slots. His interview with Thomas Pettigrew, The Colonial Pharmacy's owner, and the woman he meets there will, in fact, change his future in ways Rodgers never envisioned.

This riveting tale also puts the reader behind the counter into the fast-paced and often-torturous existence of a retail pharmacist. Perry's evocative pharmacy scenes place the reader in the maelstrom and confusion of pharmacy work. The reader also witnesses the profound angst experienced by Rodgers as a result of his first months as a pharmacist.

In this captivating romantic and suspenseful prequel to The Cyclops Conspiracy and The Cyclops Revenge, master storyteller David Perry introduces us to Jason Rodgers thirteen years before the fateful events unveiled in his bestselling and thrilling Cyclops series of novels. Read The Extern and go back in time to see how it all began...

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

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 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...

Reedsy Discovery

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!
