Synopsis: Brad Cummins is an Air Force surgeon who returns from overseas deployment after serving four months at the height of the Iraq War, during which he fails to save an injured soldier but mends the GI's attacker. He endures rigid criticism from his peers, yet survives the medical tribunal's investigation. Back in Jackson, Mississippi, still blaming himself for returning the insurgent to the killing fields, Cummins discovers his look-alike brother shot to death and is certain that he was the intended target. Both the police and Brad's fiancée discount his fears as paranoia, forcing Brad to consult a psychiatrist. Then his fiancée is found murdered in his apartment. There is no doubt in his mind that he is marked for murder.
Synopsis: Darden North is one of those writers who pays meticulous attention to getting the detail right in the course of his riveting thrillers and "Wiggle Room" is no exception. A deftly woven and compelling story populated by memorable characters, and also available in a Kindle edition ($3.99), "Wiggle Room" is a solidly written novel that would make an enduringly popular addition to community library Mystery/Suspense collections. Also very highly recommended reading are his three earlier thriller novels: “House Call” (Kindle, $4.99); “Points of Origin” (Kindle, $4.99); and “Fresh Frozen” (Kindle, $4.99).
