Blink of An Eye

Blink of An Eye - Gregg Luke This is the first novel I have ever read by Gregg Luke and I have to admit I was impressed. Blink of an Eye is a medical/ psychological thriller that looks at the impact of traumatic brain injury on one man's life. Joseph Ramirez leads an ordinary quiet life as a school teacher when he is involved in a car accident that alters his memory forever. Soon bits and pieces of his childhood begin into come back dreams and he learns that it was anything but ideal.
Gregg Luke unravels the page turning plot little by little in short well written chapters that leave you wanting to know more. The detail is incredible and I found the methods used by the psychologist sound and accurate. A lot of research and hard work went into describing the process of hypnotherapy and regression used by the psychiatrist working on Joseph's case. Blink of An Eye is not for the faint of heart as it describes the abuse Joseph and his family were forced to endure. It tells a gripping story that could very well be many people's reality who deal with domestic violence and child abuse daily in their homes. This is a hard one to put down once you have started. You'll want to know exactly what did or did not happen to Joseph and what secrets lay in his past.
It's one I likely will never forget since it brings to light many of the issues I worked with as a child protective service worker and domestic violence victim's advocate. It's a book that leaves an impression. To learn more about the author visit his website at http://greggluke.com/2201.html
