Malice by Jennifer Jaynes




You can trust your pediatrician right? He is always going to do the ethical thing for your child and what is in their best interest, correct? He would never be guilty of malice and doing things for his own personal financial gain, or would he?

Dr. Daniel Winters has it all. He has a career as a pediatrician and an exclusive office, Healing Hands which has a one year wait for new patients. He has a beautiful beach front home in Malibu and a wife named Mia that looks like a model and is smart as hell. Life is good...until it is not.

A new vaccine is out for children and it is called Respira. For some reason Healing Hands is pushing this vaccine, even though it is used to prevent the common cold. They don't even want their doctors to use the word vaccine for it, they prefer the term "immune system booster." It is totally safe, or is it? Dr. Winters is struggling with that question himself. Meanwhile doctors that have spoken out against Respira are found murdered. He may lose his job, his home, his wife and his career if he follows his gut on this.

Mia meanwhile is sneaking around, getting mysterious texts and has many holes in her story as to where she is. Daniel Winters is wondering if there may be more to his wife than he knows about. She doesn't like to talk about her past, what is she hiding?

This book had me from the very first chapter. It pulled me right in and would not let me go. I flew through this book. I have never read a Jennifer Jaynes book and I can assure you I will be reading more from her. It was a gripping thriller that really had a lot of depth to it. It made you question to what degree that things like this occur in our medical field. What lengths people go to for money, no matter if it meant they are harming others. Even if they have taken the oath to heal others and do no malice.  Loved it!

Much thanks to Jennifer Jaynes, Thomas & Mercer and NetGalley!
