Posttraumatic by Ronald Simonar is a suspenseful thriller novel with an intense plot and a decisive protagonist. The story follows Dr. Caroline Glyn, a medical professor who lost her husband to a brain tumor. Since then, she has been obsessed with finding cancer-causing cells. Being a widow and a mother of a 5-year-old daughter named Mary drives her to work harder to achieve her goal. However, things change when her daughter befriends a girl named Krupskaya. While the friendship was innocent, Caroline had no idea that this friendship was all planned. Before she can get hold of her bearings, there is a murder, an unexplained incident, and Mary is kidnapped. Caroline has already lost her husband Robert and she is unwilling to lose her daughter too. What will Caroline do to save her daughter from forces that are far more powerful than her?
Traditionally written with a very unique approach, Posttraumatic is a pleasure to read and reread until you become one with the pages. The idea of the story is fantastic and its execution even better. Caroline is the kind of protagonist that you feel an emotional connection with and root for until the end. Author Ronald Simonar paces the story just right and slowly but surely introduces the conflict into the story before smacking readers with intense suspense and drama to make them sweat. I was completely absorbed in the story, looking for clues, and hoping for answers that would unfold the mystery even a little bit. The addition of the Russian mafia and crooked cop felt as much a part of the story as the FBI agents did. I loved the dialogues, the intensity of the plot, and the action. I will not be surprised if the story becomes a movie or a TV series in the future because Caroline is the type of protagonist that people will love. The cinematic quality of the story is off the charts. I loved it!
