A brilliantly-conceived novel that fuses elements of horror, medical suspense and the supernatural, The Donors is a tense and terrifying tale about the ultimate struggle of good versus evil.
Hailed as a formidable talent with an uncanny ability to create universally-moving, inventive, and gripping stories, Wilson draws from a diverse array of life experiences. A trauma and combat surgeon who served two tours in Iraq, Wilson knows first-hand the horrors of war, the painful uncertainty of life-or-death situations, and the grip of seeing those haunting images that cannot be unseen. While Wilson’s realm of experience provides a rich resource for the fresh, innovative, and imaginative storylines he creates, what elevates his writing to another level is the uniquely human element that courses throughout. His latest novel, The Donors, is populated with real, relatable, flesh-and-blood characters who come to life within the pages. And what results is a gripping, mesmerizing, and evocative novel.Meticulously-plotted, carefully- crafted with the precision of a surgeon, and bristling with suspense, The Donors is a haunting story that will leave readers breathless.
