Close to Death

By: M. Antoine Louis-Jacques, M.D.

About the Book

Close to Death was inspired by the many Medical mishaps, corruption and unbridled power witnessed within the Medical community. Ultimately, the spin put forth during the OJ Simpson trial gave rise to this novel and our intrepid character Dr. Bill Presser, a gregarious and overly flirtatious Anesthesiologist who gets mixed up in a series of sexual exploits, murders, including the attempt on his wife, while lacking a clear alibi. Will the smooth talker be able to schmooze his way out of being framed for these crimes or will the real mastermind and his motif be discovered in time to keep him from a state sponsored execution?

    All I have to say is WOW. It's been a while since I was unable to put down a book. The suspense of this book will have your mind racing and mouth dropping. Just when you think you have it figured out you're in for a surprise. I look forward to seeing what M. Antoine Louis-Jacques, M.D has up his sleeves for part two of this trilogy. The novel is well written. The way the author wrote the novel made it easy for me to visualize . I felt like i was watching a movie and could not take my eyes off afraid that I might miss something. I am patiently waiting for part two and three.

    I had the pleasure to read the book and I have admit that i was so intrigue by it. As a medical professional I can related to all the events in the book. Sometimes the events and the characters made me scream "what are you thinking...?", "why are you doing this...". The book is written in simple language what makes reading so much easy. You won't be able to put the book down and in the end you will crave for more
