The Last Doctor (Government Rain Mysteries #1) by L.A. Frederick

The Last Doctor is the first story in the Government Rain Mysteries series by L.A. Frederick. It gives the reader a peek into the series’ core setting (the Newton Street facility) and some of the characters there. From this introduction, readers will get a pretty good foundation for where the plot is headed. Or at least you think so; turns out there are quite a few twists, turns, and layers to this series.

In story number one, a young doctor working at an incarceration facility of some kind has second thoughts and doubts about himself and his abilities to continue the experimental treatments he's administering so he resigns his position. Once back in society he begins to question the morality of what he was participating in and wants to notify the authorities of his concerns. But it’s not that simple where this government is involved. It looks like he won't be allowed to raise a red flag about the experiments.

This series, although titled “Mysteries,” touches a broad range of reading interests (mystery, urban mystery, mutants, horror, sci-fi, dystopian, urban horror). There is something for almost everyone.

I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader copy of this book.
