The Seneca Scourge

Seneca Scourge

Oh boy will you be in for a big surprise — you’re reading, reading and – blam!   The Seneca Scourge by Carrie Rubin would be a good movie.  There’s tension, action, intrigue – sheesh! — a little romance.  I haven’t read a lot of this genre, but it’s a nice mix of elements.  How’d she come up with this?

This is the second novel I’ve read by a medical doctor.  I bought the other one based on a review I read, and was disappointed, especially since I like the idea of novel-writing doctors, or doctors who write novels — writers who practice medicine – left, right brain merge — yay!  I couldn’t even finish the other book.  I think that other writer was trying too hard to be metaphysical and the shit just didn’t work.

But I love the concept of Carrie’s book, and the plot lured me in – I had to know where it was going.  And in the end, there’s room for a sequel, I think.  But, it’s up to Carrie.

    • Thanks Carla! Hahaha! Your book’s next! I’m living the life of a starving artist, until I go back to work in April, so I can’t afford any more books now. But I’m looking forward to buying it after a couple of ‘catch up’ paychecks! I’ve sent in a couple of short stories hoping to be published — maybe I’ll get some duckets for those — fat chance, but I can dream…

  • Sandee, you are like an ice cold beer on a hot summer day–always a welcome treat! Imagine my surprise to look through my inbox of new blog posts and find my novel in the title of one! So nice of you to do. And I’m glad you enjoyed the book. You’re now 1 for 1 for finishing medical thrillers, and I’m sure glad mine was the one you got through. Phew.

    Thank you again!!

  • Oooh sequel, yes! Great idea!

    Hope you’ve been doing well Sandee, I’ll keep my fingers crossed for your short stories you sent in.

  • Sandee, Carrie’s book has some great reviews. I will have to download that Kindle app to my iPad so I can check it out. I have your book. Now I just have to have to time to read. Thanks for the review and look forward to more of your tales as well. Happy weekend!

    • I think you’ll enjoy it! I did see all the reviews on the Amazon page. I’m going to cut and paste some of this post for a review as well.

      Thanks for supporting my book Brigitte! There’s one story in there, Doody Lady, that I’ve since revamped to submit to a couple of literary journals. I fleshed it out more. We’ll see. I hope you enjoy your weekend as well. And I’m glad to see you taking on new adventures! Take care!

  • When I was a teenager, I could read Robin Cook’s books fast enough. I was fascinated by his medical thrillers. I don’t know if he still writes but man I loved his books. I think the last one I read was Outbreak.

    Oh, a quick google search tells me he still does and it seem I have a lot of catching up to do. I wonder if I will still like them now that I actually have all the medical and molecular knowledge. Something tells me I will 🙂

    I’ll put the Seneca Scourge in my wish list. Thank you!
