    Fast paced medical thriller. It was hard to put down and really gets inside your head. Being a nurse, the medical jargon and the "God complex" of certain doctors were not new to me. Mr. Benedict does a great job of introducing you to hospital politics, but there are some parts that teeter on the edge of plausibility. I wouldn't want to read it if I were to have any upcoming procedures though.

    Quite enjoyableI quite enjoyed this, and although I worked out mostly whAt was happening about halfway through, the Book still had a dentists up its sleeve.

    I would have given this 5 stars but....I would have given this 5 stars but....This was a good thriller with believable characters, decent action and interesting plot. The one thing that really bothered me was that 'Mercy' hospital seemed to lack any security like no cameras or guards during the pivotal ending where gun shots are fired and loud arguments are taking place. Really?

    This was a fast paced, action packed medical thriller. Unexplained deaths occurred in the OR and an Anesthesiologist begins to look into them. More deaths occurred outside the Hospital, all not making any sense. Eventually everything climaxes in the OR. Well done and well plotted. This is the kind of novel you stay up late to finish.

    Wow!This was such a riveting book! I started this afternoon and couldn't put it down until I finished! It kept me captivated from the beginning! I knew how parts of it would play out, yet there were so many others that I had no idea!! I couldn't believe how captivated I was throughout the entire book! A book I would recommend to any who want a medical drama/thriller!!

    AwesomeI choose the rating because the book was great, kept me on the edge trying to figure out who the murderer was. Felt a connection wit the story because I knew the area which he was describing.

    Yes, just as good as Robin Cook. A page-turner with many plot twists and sympathetic characters.

    This was the first book I've read by John Benedict & WOW. I couldn't put it down! The plot was clear & fast paced but, for me, the hilight of the book was the unique insight he shared when the doctors in the book fought for the lives of their patients. The Medical Thriller genre is my favorite & I've read more in this category than I can remember but this was the first time I felt an actual chill up my spine as one patient "woke up" during her surgery (not a spoiler). The ability he has to share the stories of doctors facing their own fears of failing their families & their patients made me almost wish "Adrenalin" was a collection of stories shared by doctors & nurses & not another story about the big HMOs taking over hospitals & the fallout. I'm looking forward to his next book "The Edge of Death" & I hope he might consider doing a book that features a collection of those stories he shared so well.

    Impossible to put down! I can't wait to read the next book!An a amazing medical thriller right up there with Robin Cook. Don't hesitate to get this book, you will not be disappointed.

    Picked this book without any expectations. What an enthralling experience! An incredible storyline with a gripping pace kept me glued to the book. The characters are extremely down to earth, extremely real, well etched and ones that the reader easily identifies with, feels the exhilaration, despair, fears and the thrill of the characters. The conversation between the people makes it very down to earth and endearing as it brings their human nature and weaknesses to the fore. The turn of events was unexpected. All in all a great book.It belongs right there with Robin Cook in my humble opinion. Please keep those books coming, Dr. Benedict. Eagerly looking forward to diving into the Edge of Death, the successor to Adrenaline.

    No question, John Benedict knows of what he writes. On one hand that is great - the reader has an insiders view of hospital administration and Anesthesiologists. On the other hand, it slows the story a bit. Adrenaline has a solid story line and is an interesting mystery/suspense read. There are a few twists I didn't see coming, but some that were no mystery at all.I did take away the impression that I need to be much more careful choosing my physician and asking questions, if I need anesthetics!I received this book, which Dr. Benedict graciously inscribed with his words of wisdom, from a Goodreads Giveaway.

    I like thrillers, and I really like medical thrillers, although I don't read a lot of them. There's something intriguing to me about how medical thrillers show you what could go wrong or make you think what if? The storyline is excellent, with several subplots that come together throughout the book. Very believable and likeable (and some NOT likeable) characters. The only negative thing I can say about the book is that it moved a little slow to me in the beginning. But trust me when I say: When the action picks up, it picks up. I gave this book 4.5 stars and would definitely recommend it to anyone who likes thrillers, especially medical thrillers.

    Medical ThrillerI really enjoyed reading this book. The writing is easy to read and the plot is scary. We place a lot of trust in the medical profession and this book showsyou what can go wrong for various reasons. It also shows the tremendous amount of strain a doctor goes through working long hours. This is a good suspense book with an interesting plot that will keep you reading until the very end. You will need to set a block of time to read this book because you won't want to put it down once you start. Bravo and five stars for John Benedict.

    Who knew a book about anesthesiologists would be so suspenseful! I thoroughly enjoyed this book with all of its twists and turns. As I came to like some of the characters in the book, despite their flaws, I couldn't wait to get to the end of the book to find out the final outcome. I read this book on my Kindle and I read from my Kindle while pedaling away on my exercise bike. I had no problem hitting my peak pace while reading this book because I tend to speed up when I read something with a lot of action in it. Many of the operating room scenes provide plenty of that!

    I really enjoyed Adrenaline, by Dr. John Benedict. It was a gripping medical thriller with a lot of twists and turns. This book held my interest from beginning to end. I normally do not pick up procedural novels because they tend to be a bit too technical to read easily. I think the author created a good mix of the suspense of a mystery and the realities of medicine. The characters were well developed and interesting. I look forward to reading Dr. Benedict’s next novel.

From the first page the suspense gets you.I've read just about every Robin Cook book out there and this is right up there with those.Great book John Benedict. I already got the second book waiting for me to read.

    It has been a while since I read a medical thriller so this was a nice change of pace. That being said, there was an awful lot of medical terminology that was lost on me. It really didn't change what I thought of the book, I just skipped over it. The ending was exciting and appropriate.

    very good book, hard to put down....just a few things seemed strange, in the middle of a hospital, guns going off, but no one hears! no security or anything! a drug room is left open and unattended for an extended period of time!?But all in all great book!

    Great little thriller. A little journey through the ins and outs of an anesthesiologist's life. Not to mention, a little corruption and drama added to the plate. A lot of medical terminology, daily doctor struggles, and drugs are learned with this one. I love when a freebie turns out this well.

    Good read!The story has an unusual twist in the conclusion that I found quite unexpected. I did have a little problem following some of the characters and their connections to one another. I enjoyed reading this book and seeing how it finally ended.

    Fabulous!I practically finished it in one sitting. It pulls you in right from the start. I liked the credibility of the medical terminology and references, of course due to the fact the author is a doctor. I look forward to reading the sequel.
