With a contemporary feel and characters you'll feel certain you've seen in the headlines or tabloids, HOOKED takes place in the mid-20th century when America was at the pinnacle of its power and prestige. Set in New York and Washington, a remote fishing village on the Turkish Riviera, Sweden, Vienna, Cairo and aboard Lydia, the world's most beautiful yacht, the story centers on Gavin Jenkins, the brilliant, charismatic Dr. FeelGood.
Here's the set-up:
HOOKED is a story of sex, greed, ambition, murder, revenge and assassination - and of Gavin Jenkins, a gifted doctor from a small town in Kentucky. Dr. Jenkins' miracle treatments give patients everything they want: youth, beauty, radiant vitality and sexual potency.
No wonder he is worshiped by the celebrities who become his patients. No wonder his influence runs from the private island of an enigmatic Turkish billionaire with a bloody secret to the crimson-draped bedroom of a sexually depraved, Mid-eastern Prince named Sadun; from the private dressing rooms of world-famous artists to the heights of international society and the inner sanctums of the White House itself.
One Reviewer Notes:
Sex, greed, ambition and murder – what’s not to like? It’s great to see NYT bestselling author, Ruth Harris and Michael Harris move into the thriller genre with this cracking debut.
