The Committee Will Kill You Now by JL Lycette
January 22 - February 16, 2024 Virtual Book Tour
ABOUT THE BOOK -
The gripping new book from the author of The Algorithm Will See You Now. Based on the true-life rationing of kidney dialysis in 1960s America, a medical intern in 1992 Seattle tries to leave his painful past behind, only to uncover a shocking truth of thirty years prior and the lasting, generational harm of hidden secrets…
After a co-intern dies by suicide, a grieving Noah Meier commits an accidental error. In a desperate move to save his patient's life, he covertly seeks help from audacious surgical resident Marah Maddox, igniting a bond between them.
When the hospital is suspiciously quick to sweep everything under the rug, Noah turns to his late father's journal for guidance and makes a chilling discovery, all while trying to stay out of the crosshairs of abusive Dr. Rankel, keen to make an example of Noah. Worse, Rankel clearly has it out for Marah as the only woman in her program.
As the hospital's patriarchal power structures, and the truth about his father's past, threaten Noah and Marah's burgeoning relationship, Noah will have to choose: shoulder his father's devastating legacy or create his own daring future.
The latest sensational page-turner from physician-author JL Lycette, The Committee Will Kill You Now is a riveting historical suspense about the inner workings of the medical world and the personal struggles of those within it.
A thrilling near-historical drama that exposes the dark side of the medical establishment and a must-read for anyone interested in medicine, ethics, and the human struggle for justice.
Praise for The Committee Will Kill You Now:
"A page-turner with heart, The Committee Will Kill You Now will appeal to both doctors and non-doctors alike, and to anyone who’s ever needed to find the courage to stand up for what’s right."
~ Hadley Leggett, MD, author of All They Ask Is Everything

MY THOUGHTS -
Another winner by JL Lycette. This book is scary real. The kind that you won't want to read sitting in the er waiting room... and yet that's what I did. Not one of my better decisions LOL. All kinds of thoughts were flying through my head.
I love how this author writes books that really make you think, questioning literally everything about the medical organization. I do love medical thrillers and medical drama, especially when they are this real and well written.
While I did like the first book - The Algorithm Will See You Now, just a tad better (my favorite book of 2023). This one was a great follow-up, or should I say prequel. This one actually comes first as far as the timeline goes.
With only two books under her belt, Jennifer Lycette has quickly become a go to author for me.
