A Second Chance at Life… February 14, 2014

By Gerald Filion

This story is about Mason’s second chance at life. All he really wants is his old life back, but Dr. Harlow, with his drug Purify, has other plans. It’s filled with excitement and unforeseen events. I felt the suspense the author created throughout the book. If you like James Patterson, you will love this book.


A truly great read. Jan. 28 2014

By Amie G.

PURIFIED by Brian Robert Smith was given to me free in eBook format in exchange for a fair and honest review. And what a read it was. I finished this book in two days and only stopped reading when I had to go to work.

   Brian Robert Smith has crafted a tale of suspense that will leave reader’s on the edge of their seats and unable to put it down. It is hard to believe that this is his debut novel. It reads like it was written by a veteran author (in a very good way).

   Imagine dying and your loved ones experiencing the pain and heartache of having to bury you and move on with their lives.

   That is exactly what happened to Mason Bushing. However, he becomes an unwitting participant in a medical experiment for a drug called Purify. Detective Warren’s wife just died. Leaving him struggling to find a way to live without her. When he is called upon to investigate what looks like a case of insurance fraud, he becomes determined to get to the bottom of it. What he discovers is both horrifying and exhilarating. And impossible to believe.

   Dr. Harlowe makes a truly terrifying villain. A genius and a madman who will stop at nothing to prove his wonder drug works. He is reminiscent of the Nazi Concentration Camp doctors. He is a man with no conscious and no morals who is losing his battle with sanity.

   Because I do not want to give away any more of the plot, I will leave my description at that. Suffice it to say that readers will be drawn in and will be hard pressed to put this book down. Brian Robert Smith has crafted a tale on par with the medical thrillers written by Robin Cook and I have no doubt that this is only the first book in what promises to be a long writing career. I look forward to reading more by this author. He is definitely one to watch.

   I rate this book as 5 out of 5 stars.


Stuck in a winter storm at the Overlook Hotel? January 19, 2014

By The Kindle Book Review

If you happen to be stuck in a winter storm at the Overlook Hotel and need to curl up with a good book, this would be it – because it’s a bit of a wild ride; definitely a fascinating read. The author is obviously bound for the mainstream with his writing style, and the story is easy to follow. To define the novel, Purified is sort of a Frankenstein/mad scientist/detective/thriller story ranging from evolution experimentation, through assault, fraud, and murder – with a lot of twists and turns. In the end, the good guy finally … sorry, no spoilers! You have to read the book. Ha! I would very much enjoy reading more from this author in the future. Can’t wait for his next book … (The Kindle
