Synopsis

Torn from the front lines of medical debate and the author's own experience with Lyme Disease, Over the Edge is riveting fiction, full of twists and turns--and powerful truths about today's medical field. 

Janessa McNeil's husband, Dr. Brock McNeil, a researcher and professor at Stanford University's Department of Medicine, specializes in tick-borne diseases--especially Lyme. For years he has insisted that Chronic Lyme Disease doesn't exist. Even as patients across the country are getting sicker, the committee Brock chairs is about to announce its latest findings--which will further seal the door shut for Lyme treatment. 

One embittered man sets out to prove Dr. McNeil wrong by giving him a close-up view of the very disease he denies. The man infects Janessa with Lyme, then states his demand: convince her husband to publicly reverse his stand on Lyme--or their young daughter will be next. 

But Janessa's marriage is already rocky. She's so sick she can hardly move or think. And her husband denies she has Lyme at all. 

Welcome to the Lyme wars, Janessa.

Mysterious Reviews

The disease is all the more horrific as it tears the McNeal family apart, at first because Brock truly believes that Lyme Disease cannot be chronic and thinks his wife is being overly dramatic when she is infected, then subsequently as the threat of their daughter being a pawn in one man's crusad...
