Praise

Best Sellers
"...an absolutely fascinating story...I do not think anyone can beat the suspense and the story line developed throughout this novel." - Charles J. Keffer

New York Times
"...an escalating cycle of terrifying events that keep the action moving...a gripping,
scarifying novel."
- Mel Watkins

National Review
"[Coma] strikes to the core of many people's queasiness about the current debate as to when death occurs...By and large this is a horror story of the first order...a splendid read." - David Brudnoy
