Brain Warp an Exemplar of the Medical/Political Thriller Genre

We are excited to announce Brain Warp: A Medical Thriller, which is a riveting page turner by Dr. Snider, who has stretched the boundaries of the genre to make the political element a focal point of his novel. This medical thriller includes the awareness of a Ukrainian’s strong feelings of nationalism and long history of their powerful Russian neighbor to the East.

“Alcoholic vagrants die sometimes on the streets of New York City. It’s not unusual,” colleagues tell Peter Branstead, a neurologist at St. Mark’s Hospital in Greenwich Village. However, when homeless men continue to show up at his hospital with what appears to be super-accelerated Alzheimer’s disease, Peter suspects something sinister. His investigation leads him into a dark underworld of international intrigue and into the center of a plot to destroy the president of the Ukraine, Anatoly Labrinska. The matter becomes an international one and Peter ends up on a deadly road involving illicit human research, the Ukrainian Mafia and the political stability of Eastern Europe.

The truth is, Dr. Snider’s research years prior to publishing his novel made him aware of the political and historical complexity of the relationship between the two Slavic countries. Not only did this provide an interesting plot line, but also served as a jumping off point for Dr. Snider to learn more about his interesting heritage.

Brain Warp, by author Dr. Snider is a provocative exploration of fear, betrayal, memory and ultimately immortality. Dr. Gil Snider is a neurologist practicing in Chesapeake, Virginia. Trained at the University of Michigan and St. Vincent’s Hospital in New York City, he lives in Virginia Beach with his wife and two sons.
