Allen Wyler's "Dead Head"

Neurosurgeon-turned-novelist Allen Wyler has applied the "Page 69 Test" to his new book, Dead Head.

Among the praise for the novel:
“Wyler’s Dead Head is a swift and entertaining read. The story is fascinating, the themes are here-and-now, the writing is taut, the action is graphic, and there are more twists and turns than the convolutions of your brain. Don’t miss this one!”
—Gary Braver, author of Flashback

Dead Head is a page-turner of the highest order. Wyler masterfully weaves his knowledge of neurosurgery and medicine into a high-stakes plot that drives the reader straight to the last page.”
—Grant Blackwood, author of An Echo of War

“The gritty, graphic details of cutting-edge surgical procedures, capped with an exciting conclusion, should keep fans of the genre riveted.”

—Tess Gerritsen, author of The Mephisto Club

Dead Head is an expertly crafted thrill-ride. The suspense builds and builds in this riveting page-turner. It's a skillful merging of the medical thriller and political thriller ... Tom Clancy meets Tess Gerritsen!”
