Michael has a terminal brain tumor and Dr. Whitney has a secret experimental operation that may just save his life. This operation comes with many strings attached, however; some good, some bad and some that will change Michael’s life forever. When wealthy Elliot Paxton is killed in a car accident, his donated brain cells will begin the drama. Catherine, his wife, and Tamara, his daughter, must deal with the loss and continue to run the family business. Garrett is the angry brother who has always hated his father and now feels that he has been overlooked and wants revenge. When all of these people and their lives come together, there is a murder planned and Michael is the only one who can stop it, but will he convince Catherine and Tamara in time? You must read each riveting page yourself to get the answer.

Images is a wonderfully fresh and exciting medical suspense story that is simply impossible to put down. I have not enjoyed reading a book as much as this one in a very long time. Author Lauri Broadbent has written a story that addresses a new and unheard of medical procedure and makes it sound believable. The suspense is very real, as are the characters and the plot. I would love to see Images turned into a movie; it would be a huge success. I believe that all fans of suspense tales, medical mysteries and just good reading should add this to their summer reading list. Images is a top-notch winner.
