“A thriller that has it all—compelling twists, medical drama, a chilling crime at its center, and most importantly, heart. Krentz has mastered the tight, page-turning thrill ride, and his nuanced characters will keep you riveted.”

— Kelly Sokol, author of Breach and The Unprotected


About the book:

He works in the heart of a hectic ER, but his greatest fear is losing his family. Can an intrepid doctor protect his own from a twisted mind?

After his near-death experience in DEAD ALREADY, Dr. Zack Winston’s self-confidence wobbles on shaky ground. Slated to see his young-adult daughters over Christmas for the first time in five years, the skilled emergency physician worries his relationship issues will prevent them from bonding. His determination to focus on his personal life sinks fast when he questions a pediatrician colleague’s alleged suicide attempt by drowning.

About the Author:

Born and raised in Arizona, Mike earned a classical degree in English from the University of San Francisco, a Doctor of Medicine degree from the Medical College of Wisconsin, and a Master of Public Health Degree from Johns Hopkins University.

Following a civilian career as an emergency physician, Mike rededicated his professional life to serve America’s Navy and Marine Corps heroes and their families.

After retiring from the US Navy, Mike continued his service as a consultant to the Navy and Marine Corps Public Health Center, Health Analysis Department. Upon completion of that mission, he returned to his earliest life passion as a full-time writer.
