Club Medicine



When murder appears to be the rational solution…

Travis Martin was the great American success story. A former addict who started the premiere private rehab in the hills of Malibu, California. He had it all: a thriving business, a beautiful wife, and a daughter who was the center of his universe. But when he relapsed, everything he built went right along with it. Now, he has a rehab filled with eccentric clients he’s expected to keep sane, a dark secret he’s desperate to keep hidden, and forces from his past that are determined to strip him of anything that remains.

What’s a self-made man to do? Backed into a corner, Travis finds himself stuck on one moral question: Can he commit murder in order to keep it all from slipping away? How far down the rabbit hole will he go? And, perhaps more importantly, how does he come back from it after that life is gone?

Part thriller and part redemption tale, Club Medicine explores the heart of darkness within us all as one man balances on the razor’s edge between self-actualization and self-destruction.

Jack Kinsley does it again! After reading his last book, Club Medicine, I was impatiently waiting for another. It was worth the wait.
