The last thing plastic surgery resident Jackson Maebry wants at the end of a long day in the operating room is a call to the ER. Once he gets there, what he finds is worse than his most hellish imaginings: a young woman, beaten and burned almost beyond recognition, a trauma case as terrible as any he has ever seen. What Jackson's colleagues don't know is that the victim, Allie, is actually his lover. With Allie in a coma, Jackson keeps their relationship quiet and takes part in her reconstruction, a complicated and grueling set of procedures that only the most skilled specialists can perform. But as he and the other doctors struggle to put her back together, the fractures in Jackson's own life begin to break apart dramatically. When the San Francisco Police Department's investigation of the attack leads to his door, Jackson knows the truth can no longer be suppressed. Ghost Image is an expertly plotted, chillingly vivid, and wholly absorbing mystery, signaling the debut of an unforgettable new voice in the genre. Taking readers inside the operating room and literally under the skin of its patients, it's a story that will appeal to those fascinated by medicine and forensics. It is also a story -- like all classic crime novels -- about guilt and innocence, good and evil. But, above all, it is a story of love -- the kind of love that might prove deadly, or that might just save your soul.

See book description above.
I must be missing out on something by not reading the book, but the unabridged audio did not satisfy me in the least. The protagonist, Jackson Maebry, seemed very naive. His obsession with Allie made him look like a schmuck. I did not care at all what happened to him, for that matter, I didn't care what happened to anyone in this story. Borriinnng.
I have a feeling if I'd have started the book I would not have finished it.
Patrick Girard Lawlor does a good job with the narration.

Doctor Jackson Maebry is the golden boy of San Francisco Memorial hospital. He is the chief resident in reconstructive surgery and the protégé of Dr. Peter Brandt, the head of the department. At a party given by Dr. Brandt's biotech company Genderm, he meets the beautiful Allie and for both of them it is love at first sight. They have four perfect months together before tragedy strikes.
Jackson is summoned to emergency where a woman beaten and burned almost beyond recognition is struggling to stay alive. At first Jackson doesn't recognize it's Allie on the table and when he does he stays at her side until she wakes from her coma. When she awakens from her comatose state, she doesn't remember anything about the attack. For some reason, the lead detective on the case zooms in on Jackson as the prime suspect. When Jackson starts looking into Allie's past, he comes to a conclusion that sets him on a path that will change his life.
Joshua Gilder's debut novel is an exciting psychological thriller with so many twists and turns that readers will have to read it in one session just to see how everything is finally resolved. The hero is a flawed person with many psychological problems but he lives his life to the fullest, which is only one of the reasons the reader will adore him. Though why he is singled out as the prime suspect besides being the victim's lover is not fully explained, GHOST IMAGE remains a strong tale that is unlike any other novel on the market today.

Fairly decent thriller about a plastic surgeon called to the ER one night when a severely burned and beaten woman is brought in. Though her face is mangled, he quickly realizes she is Allie, his lover. He manages to save her, but she is left in a coma for months while the police department searches for clues about what might have happened to her.
When she finally wakes, she doesn't remember what happened. And though Jackson stays by her side, his love for her never faltering, Allie soon becomes obsessed about her appearance -- and about the fact her boyfriend and his boss have the tools and the skills to fix her face. Her obsession turns deadly -- and so does, in some ways, Jackson's own obsession. With her.
All in all, a pretty original medical thriller. But this is Gilder's first novel and it really shows. The writing is good -- solid and well-developed. But, to put it simply, there's just too much of it. Which isn't the same thing as saying the novel is too long (although, that too), but more that sometimes sentences, paragraphs, or even whole chapters are superfluous. And, after awhile, I started skimming a bit. I wanted to find out what happened next, but was quickly becoming bogged down by the unnecessary parts. Still, ten times better than anything Robin Cook has put out in the last decade. Fans of the genre won't be disappointed.

Ghost Image is a tense and powerful novel which launches Joshua Gilder as the most exciting new novelist since Scott Turow debuted in 1988 with Presumed Innocent. Gilder distinguishes himself from many of today's top suspense writers: He cares deeply about his characters; and so does the reader. In Ghost Image, the shocking revelations are not just arbitrary plot manipulations; the action rushes forward as the reader penetrates the darkest and most painful parts of the human soul. Gilder can create the suspense of a Grisham, but Grisham may not consistently create characters of such potency as those found in Ghost Image. The human relationships are complex, the medical science is exact, and the pace is unrelenting. The book is an innovative medical thriller, but the sharpest scalpel is applied to cutting open the raw fears, ambitions and intimate desires that seethe through these poignant characters in a painful and uncommon love story. Ghost Image is a suspenseful, can't-put-it-down page turner. I read the book in a single all-night sitting, racing to reach the remarkable conclusion before the sun came up. You will love this book, and if you are like me, you will want more. Ghost Image gets my highest rating.
