Hailed as a formidable talent with an uncanny ability to create universally-moving, inventive, and gripping stories, author Jeffrey 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.
About “The Donors:” Five-year-old Nathan Doren is in the hospital recovering from unspeakable injuries he received at the hands of his mother’s abusive and violent ex-boyfriend. But the hospital—a place that should be a safe—is anything but: An evil force stalks the hospital. Demonic-looking men with deathly pale faces and glowing eyes lurk in the shadows. And someone—or some thing—is harvesting skin and organs from living donors against their will. In his dreams, Nathan can see these demons in their true form: evil creatures who feed on the fear and hatred they create in their victims. Nathan’s only ally is Dr. Jason Gelman, the young doctor who cares for him. Bound together by a common legacy of abuse and the ability to see these demons for what they are, Nathan and Jason must find a way to stop these evil creatures—before their own loved ones become the next victims.
