About Wiggle Room…While serving as an Air Force surgeon at the height of the Iraq War, Major Brad Cummins fails to save an injured soldier yet must mend the Iraqi national maimed in the same IED blast. Brad survives the medical tribunal’s inquest over the GI’s unexplained death but endures rigid criticism from his peers. Still blaming himself for losing the soldier after successful surgery, Brad is haunted by the Iraqi’s words: Maybe you should rethink what you really are. When he returns from deployment, Brad resumes surgical practice with his twin brother in Mississippi—until he discovers his twin shot to death in a suspected robbery. When he finds their name tags mistakenly switched, Brad cannot forget a haunting, anonymous message—I will give you a little wiggle room— and is certain that he was the intended target. But when the police, and even his fiancée, discount his fears as paranoia, Brad is forced to uncover the truth—even if that means risking his life, and the lives of those closest to him. Expect the unexpected in this exhilarating and extraordinary page turner….
