Do No Harm by Gregg Luke. Published by Covenant Communications, Inc.

When Paul Randall finds a small ad in a magazine advertising the sale of a pharamacy, he is excited at the prospect of starting over in a different environment, away from memories of his deceased wife. He doesn't think very much about small inconsistencies and warnings that come his way from his new acquaintances. But when he finds Bria Georgopolis on the side of the freeway, he is thrown right into the mysteries that surround his new home.

This was a very compelling book. It reminded me a lot of a Robin Cook style medical thriller. I couldn't put it down. I was actually drawn into the character of Bria quite a bit more than Paul. He didn't feel quite as real to me as she did. But that doesn't really matter because the story was so much more about the suspense and mystery that was being described rather than character development. It's a really fun ride. There aren't many LDS books that fall into this category and I enjoyed reading something different.
