Secondary Impact

We rated this book:


It was a stroke of luck that Dr. Danny Tilson was present at a college basketball game when his daughter’s boyfriend fell and got a concussion. David seemed to be okay, but Danny still warned him away from being active for awhile until his brain was fully healed. Unfortunately, David didn’t listen and got a second knock to the head, which put him into a coma and left him with epileptic seizures. Spurred on by his daughter, Danny is determined to come up with a new, innovative way of determining which part of David’s brain is responsible for the seizures. But can he get past the drama in his personal life to accomplish it?

Secondary Impact is the fourth novel in author Barbara Ebel’s Dr. Danny Tilson series. While readers would benefit from reading the books in order, it’s not necessary to have read the other three in order to understand and enjoy this new offering; enough of Danny’s backstory, and that of his family, is provided for readers to quickly become thoroughly engrossed. Ebel writes in a manner that is engaging and exciting, and her background in medicine clearly shines through as she details secondary impact syndrome, various surgeries, and more. Danny Tilson himself is a very likeable character, smart and funny and with a generally good relationship with his kids, his ex-wife, his sister, and his best friend. The situation with ex-mistress Rachel adds a flair of drama; readers will love to hate her as she manipulates the court system and conspires to take away Danny’s youngest daughter, and they’ll cheer when she’s ordered to pay Casey additional money after his accident. Secondary Impact is a fantastic novel that will leave readers looking forward to the next installment in the series.
