Summary

Trusted surgeon. Loving wife. Murderer?

Before my world came crashing down, I had it all. The successful career I dreamed of. The beautiful red-brick home where I could relax in front of the fire. The handsome, devoted husband whose blue eyes and charming smile always made me feel safe.

As I call time of death, my voice is steady. My colleagues stand hushed around me, their eyes on me, confused, concerned.

I have never lost a patient until today.

My hands tremble inside their gloves. I slide down the cold tiled walls, my heart racing in my chest.

I have never hated a patient until today.

But what choice did I have, once I recognized him?

And what will I do to protect myself, if someone learns the truth?

A totally gripping psychological thriller that will have you gasping for breath until the final jaw-dropping twist. If you love Freida McFadden, Shari Lapena, and The Girl on the Train, you won’t be able to pause this.

Great ending, I didn't see that coming!!


Although the book took a little while to get into, once I was it was very enjoyable to listen to.
Very well narrated and written. I'm going to listen to more by this new, to me, author.

Gripping medical crime thriller

‘The Surgeon’ by Leslie Wolfe is a medical/crime thriller that proved to be a highly engaging read that worked well in an audiobook format.

As with most crime and psychological thrillers, I read it ‘cold’ in order to avoid spoilers. However, I will confirm that the Audible description provides a good summary.

With respect to the audiobook, Gwendolyn Druyor has served as narrator on almost 300 titles, including a number by Leslie Wolfe. I felt that she did a good job with this audiobook and I enjoyed the contrast between those chapters told from the viewpoints of its two main characters: Anne and Paula. A change of tone and inflection differentiated between Anne’s sense of service and dedication versus Paula’s nastiness and ambition.

Overall, I found ‘The Surgeon’ a gripping thriller with plenty of twists and turns. It was the kind of book that I found almost impossible to put down and was grateful that listening as an audiobook I didn’t have to.

Mediocre story poor narration

I probably would have given up on this book had I not been recommended it by a friend who had physically read it.
The narration is probably the worst I’ve ever heard and I have 550 + books in my library. As it is I carried on until the end wasn’t blown away too much repetition and unnecessary filling but it had a decent twist at the end.

Research evident, story good. poor

The narration depicting the surgeon was of a subservient, dependent personality. Good story line overall

The narrator

I’m only half way through but the narrator’s voice is the worst I have ever heard.. As someone else said, a whiny little girl voice. “A gup of goffee.” So annoying. I’m struggling to finish…

Listened on fast forward to the end.… 😂 So ridiculous. One of the worst books I’ve read. Hated all the characters. The ending 😂

Couldn’t listen to the end!

The narration was so bad! I tried a few times to listen to it but couldn’t continue with the narrator’s whinny voice. I fast forwarded a few chapters to see if it gets better but it didn’t so I stopped trying.

Couldn't keep going

The narration is terrible, listened to many books, this has to be by far the worst. I tried until chapter 5. Very disappointed.
