"Amanda's Story' by Brian O'Grady {Book Review}


In his national bestseller HYBRID, Brian O'Grady created a bracing and vividly realized tale of a virus gone out of control. At the center of that story was Amanda Flynn, a woman not killed by the EDH1 virus, but changed in frightening ways. HYBRID only hinted at the story of Amanda's work in Honduras that led to her exposure and the ramifications when the American government sought to contain the damage. Now, that story can be told.

AMANDA'S STORY is the heart-stopping tale of a woman caught up in a storm she wanted no part of, and what happens when she refuses to be collateral damage.

About the Author, Brian O'Grady:

Dr. Brian O’Grady’s second novel Amanda's Story was released in November, 2012 after his best-selling debut with Hybrid.

Dr. O’Grady, a neurosurgeon, explores the untapped abilities that lie within the human brain with his series, starting with Hybrid. The key in Dr. O’Grady’s debut novel is a virus, which unleashes a chain of events in the same spine-tingling spirit of suspense as The Andromeda Strain and the X-Files.

O’Grady follows in the tradition of Michael Crichton as a physician who brings his in-depth medical knowledge to his craft. A practicing neurosurgeon, O’Grady is a graduate of the University of New Mexico who completed his residency in neurosurgery at the Mayo Clinic. His deep insight into the mysterious workings of the human brain brings HYBRID and Amanda's Story realistically to life.

When he is not writing or performing brain surgery, he struggles with Ironman triath- lons. He lives with his wife in Washington state.

Brian pens the plot in "Amanda's Story", a medical thriller, well thought out and developed. His characters are so realistic and believable that they it will keep you turning the page.  The sequel to his first novel "Hybrid" (which I'm dying to read) is so gripping that I had a really hard time putting it down. Highly recommended for all thriller fans.

I give "Amanda's Story" a 5 star rating.
