Book Review - Not For Profit by Glenn Shepard

Book Review
Not For Profit
by Glenn Shepard, MD

A prominent surgeon accused of murder and terrorism ...

A corrupt healthcare administrator hell-bent on bloody revenge...

A mysterious seductress whose secrets could free the doctor and kill thousands ...

A terrorist cell with missiles aimed at a leading hospital in America’s Bible Belt ...

Not for Profit takes you on an action-packed thrill ride that will have you questioning suspects, motives, and outcomes until the very last page.

Renowned plastic surgeon Dr. Scott James is charged with murder after two bodies are found at his surgery center. Just weeks before the start of his capital murder trial, Dr. James is approached by a beautiful woman claiming she can help him gain information that would prove his innocence.

As James hunts down the evidence that might free him, he faces a barrage of threats to his life and liberty—and makes one chilling discovery after another: Corporate corruption. A conspiracy to frame him for murder and for terrorist acts. A secret drone-control operation that takes out targets in Afghanistan and Pakistan. The true identity and intent of his beautiful ally. And a plot to blow up the local hospital and surrounding community.

About the Author
Dr. Glenn Shepard was raised on a farm in eastern Virginia. He attended the University of Virginia on an academic scholarship and majored in psychology. As an undergraduate, he lettered in wrestling for three years in a row. Then, he went on to become the only person in UVA history to letter in wrestling again in his sophomore year in medical school.

After completion of med school at UVA, he went to Vanderbilt where he completed his residency in general and cardiovascular surgery. He spent two years in the Army at the Ft. Gordon Army Hospital in Augusta, Georgia and The Second Surgical Hospital in An Khe, Vietnam. While in Vietnam, he wrote his first work of fiction, SURGE, which is on his back burner of works to dig out of the attic and publish, with major revisions, in the future.

For 28 years, he founded and directed The Peninsula Cranio-Facial deformities clinic that was staffed by volunteer medical, dental, social services, psychology, and speech pathology experts. The group treated over five hundred patients with cleft lips and palates, as well as a variety of deformities of the face and hand.

After the massive earthquake in Haiti in January, 2010, Dr. Shepard emerged from retirement and joined the Notre Dame Hospital unit in Leogane, Haiti for a 10 day rotation. His empathy for the people and their problems as well as his admiration for the contributions of time and talent from medical personnel from all over the world greatly inspired his second novel, RELIEF AID, HAITI.

NOT FOR PROFIT, Dr. Shepard's first thriller.

Our Book Review
A interesting story encompassing two causes which are drawn together in very strange circumstances.

The author uses his experiences to write a thriller which keeps the reader involved on every page .The use of the language and short paragraphs detailing the main characters movements make it a very easy read to follow.

You become involved in the story and feel the emotions that our hero is suffering and have to admire his courage and bravery in the fight to prove his innocence and to restore his reputation .

In every book I read I try and find or see a message or point of view the writer is trying to make.  In this book I think the message is do we know who is really protecting or looking after us? Also where does the real threat to our life's come from?.

A renown doctor is accused of murder and at the same time a terrorist group are threatening to attack.  In the course of proving his innocence his investigation and leads draw the two together.

Overall an exciting page turning thriller with up to date threats which could happen or effect anyone . The author has used his knowledge in both the medical and the army profession to produce a noteworthy story which will be enjoyed by many.

It was a pleasure to be asked to review this novel and I wish the author all the best for future publications, and hope to be on his mailing list.
