“If you’re coming after me, don’t do it in a hospital. That’s my domain. And don’t piss me off in the real world and expect a smooth hospital stay because I have a long memory, and no one is exempt. Before you bully me in a bar, embarrass me on a date, or refuse to replace the crappy car you sold me, think about this: you’ll never be more vulnerable in your life than when you’re spending the night in a hospital. When you’re here, you’re not family. You’re prey!”
–Dr. Gideon Box
“Wild and crazy! After reading Bad Doctor, I may never set foot in a hospital again—even as a visitor!”
“If you like Donovan Creed, you’re going to love Bad Doctor!”
“Bad Doctor hooked me from the first sentence! I kept thinking “Just one more chapter,” but I couldn’t stop. When there were no pages left to turn I was shocked to find I had spent the entire afternoon reading this book!”
Dr. Gideon Box, world-famous surgeon, is extremely good at his job. He’s never lost a patient…but he has issues. He’s antisocial. Doesn’t mix well with others. Breaks into people’s homes and assumes their identities. Occasionally kills other doctor’s patients. He’s had bad luck with women his entire life. Big surprise, right? His psychiatrist tells him to join a dating service. Tells him to seek women from small towns. Says they’ll possess basic core values, be less shallow and self-centered than the hookers and strippers he’s been dating. She tells him to take a week off and visit these women. Tells him to be positive, keep an open mind. So Dr. Box joins a dating website, spends two weeks narrowing down the candidates, and eventually settles on three small-town Kentucky women who seem to possess the qualities his psychiatrist recommended, as well as the one quality Dr. Box seeks: excessive horniness. He sets out to meet these women, starting with Faith Hemphill, who lives in Ralston, Kentucky. He flies to Nashville, rents a car, gets within two hours of Ralston…and meets a hot young waitress named Trudy Lake. Then all hell breaks loose.
Dr. Gideon Box attempts to move his new girlfriend, Trudy Lake, into his Manhattan penthouse and high society lifestyle. Problem is, Trudy’s a backwoods Kentucky girl with more baggage than the Lost & Found warehouse at LaGuardia!
“Outside the Box is John Locke’s best book in more than a year!”
“I wish I could tell Locke’s fans why they will love this book, but I don’t want to take anything away from the wonderful experience.”
“A Dr. Box book with humor AND heart? What’s the world coming to? I love, absolutely LOVE Trudy Lake!”
