Authors We Love, Part XXVIII: Hilybee, Ken McClure, & A Giveaway


Ken McClure is a UK and US best-selling author of medical thrillers.  He grew up in Edinburgh, Scotland and currently resides in East Lothian, just outside of Edinburgh.  Ken is a UK author, but is also known in the US for his writing.  He’s best known for his character Dr. Steven Dunbar or the Dr Steven Dunbar thrillers/series.  I like to call Dunbar the “House” of medical fiction, but way more interesting and without the Vicodin.  There’s always some crazy new medical tragedy he has to overcome, and it’s never as it appears to be.

I absolutely love the series, and can’t get enough of them!  Donor, book 1, was my first experience to Dr. Dunbar and Ken McClure.  I was instantly hooked by the characters and found myself begging to know the end.  The twists and turns are so unexpected and perfectly placed by McClure that the reader is shocked each time, even in the sequels.  Ken has a unique talent to bring medical thrillers to life in a way that’s so intriguing and, well, thrilling the reader just won’t know what to think except – “I want more..and right now.”

Click here to read my review of Donor (Book 1, Dr Steven Dunbar).  I was so captivated by this book, I wrote the review the minute I was finished reading it directly from my Kindle (so excuse the lack of extra fun stuff).

Ken McClure is a medical thriller genius.  He’s the Stephen King of medical thrillers.  He always has something new to write about with no end in sight.  Needless to say, I am a fan.  His novel Donor is on my list of favorites and his name appears on my list of favorite authors.  The themes are a little dark, so anyone over the age of 15-16 will love these novels.  Enjoy them and tell me what you think!

McClure also has several other titles without Dunbar in them.

…and a few more as well.  The titles above are all offered in ebook and paperback format.
