Vera Mortina | Dangerous Doctors

Vera Mortina continues the Dangerous Doctors Series by Dimitri Markov. The story is about Dr. Vera Mortina who has a sordid background.  She was chosen to be a part of a medical group, but the staff did not delve into her background to find out more about her. Soon after she starts work at the practice she begins to display odd and troubling behaviors. Patients die in mysterious ways after her arrival. When Dr. Richard Bates begins to look into his partner’s past he discovers thoughts of violent behaviors and savage hobbies. And now he knows too much. His life is in danger.

The idea for this spine-chilling medical fiction is interesting. The character descriptions in this novel were fantastic. Markov’s descriptions are detailed and vivid; one can easily picture the characters and their surroundings. There is a lot of time spent crafting what each character felt and thought about each other. In any fiction story where the character is emotionally disturbed it’s important to have a fully realized character that readers can understand, if not sympathize. Dr. Vera Mortina was very well executed in the characters development and display of odd behaviors.

The story itself is interesting, gripping and holds the reader’s attention throughout the novel. There is a life or death situation or choice to be made at every page turn. I enjoyed the suspense in this novel, I was never sure where the characters would end up and the thrill kept me at the edge of my seat. It is not predictable, honestly I thought it would be when I began the story, but there were moments when I was pleasantly surprised. It is evident that a lot of time and care went into crafting this story, it just needs a few more edits.

Vera Mortina has a lot of potential and could be an exceptional book.

About Literary Titan

The Literary Titan is a book review website which consists of mostly fiction books, but we do enjoy non fiction works that we're excited about. All reviews are the reviewer’s honest opinion. We love books and read constantly (seriously, it’s an addiction). We're always open to book review requests and have aspirations of one day being sucked into the Twilight Zone episode with Burgess Meredith where all he wants to do is read, but can’t until the world ends; you know what I mean?
