Tomorrow We Die by Shawn Grady (Book Review)

Tomorrow We Die, the second book by Shawn Grady, is the story of the young paramedic, Jonathan Trestle.  Jonathan is merely biding his time as a paramedic while he waits to begin medical school on a full scholarship.  It seems that his well-laid plan is in serious trouble when patients begin mysteriously dying for inexplicable reasons.  Thus begins the story of Jonathan's quest for truth.  He is not content to accept the loss of his patients and sets off to discover the reason for the untimely deaths.  In the process, he gets much more than he bargained for and that is what makes this tale so appealing.  Add in a scandal, a long-standing grudge, and a bit of romance and you have a story that will keep your eyes riveted on the pages until the final word. 

Tomorrow We Die is another winner for Mr. Grady.  It may be a work of fiction but the realistic action and the attention to detail make the reader feel as if they have been vaulted into reality.  His characters are life-like and the plots are intricate, convoluted, and very believable.  If you are a reader like me who enjoys books about the medical profession, you will love Shawn Grady.  His personal knowledge of the profession combines with his gift for story-telling to make him an author who can't write fast enough to please his fans.

After reading both this book and his first novel, Through the Fire, author Shawn Grady has joined the ranks of my favorite writers.  His name has become one I will be watching for and he is a writer whose future books will rise to the very top of my must-read stack. 

This book was published by Bethany House and can be purchased through them, at your favorite local book store, or online stores such as AmazonChristian Book Distributors, or Barnes and Noble.
