The Head Hunters: A Medical Thriller

The Head Hunters: A Medical Thriller

by David Osborn

Washington DC—and terror in an isolated government-sanctioned medical laboratory as the potential of medicine goes horrifyingly wrong.

When Susan, a young researcher, loses her fiancée in a terrible accident, she is seduced by Michael, a friend and the head doctor on a top-secret neurometric project backed by the White House and the famed Borg-Harrison Foundation. Joining Michael’s team, Susan is unaware of the terrible danger she faces in the high-security facility and from Katherine, the team psychologist, who will go to any lengths to protect the lab’s vital secrecy—and her own carnal desires. When Susan stumbles onto the true nature of the project, it’s to find herself in it too deep to walk away and, trapped in the worst kind of nightmare, threatened every second to becoming a ghastly medical experiment herself.

In The Head Hunters, David Osborn explores the murky boundaries between ethics and medical research, between volunteer and victim, ambition and ruthlessness, and between life and death when a team of responsible doctors plays a deadly game in which any of the players can be condemned to a purgatory more ghastly than hell.

“This well-plotted thriller makes compulsive holiday reading.”  —Salisbury Journal, reviewing David Osborn’s Murder on Martha’s Vineyard

“As commercial and exciting a novel as can be found today.… It is shocking, savage, and graphic, a cruel book that spares little in detail. There is unbearable suspense, headlong action, and ends with a final ironic twist that will leave the reader gasping. Osborn is a master storyteller and his remorseless style matches his remorseless narrative.…”  —Abilene Reporter News, reviewing David Osborn’s Open Season

“An exciting, highly plausible Washington thriller …”  —Gore Vidal, reviewing David Osborn’s The French Decision

“No better example of absorbing, fast-paced intrigue. Compelling to the last punctuation mark.”  —Clive Cussler, reviewing David Osborn’s The French Decision

“This is a first-class book. It has what one admires so often in English thrillers and finds so seldom in American ones: literate, accomplished writing which makes the plot more ingenious, the characterizations more deft and engaging, and therefore the thrills more thrilling.…”  —Michael Thomas, author of Green Monday, reviewing David Osborn’s Love and Treason
