The Cadaver's Ball by Charles Atkins

First sentence:

"Come on, Beth."


"Ed, Peter and Beth have been close friends ever since medical school. But for Ed it’s much more. He loves Beth—intensely. He even proposed to her once, but she turned him down because she’d already agreed to marry Peter. From that day on, Ed has been determined to prove to Beth that she married the wrong man…

Ed never got the chance to convince her. A tragic car crash took Beth’s life. Peter was at the wheel. Suddenly all of Ed’s burning hatred for his old friend flares to life, and Ed won’t rest until he’s destroyed Peter. Bit by bit, Ed sets out to ruin the unsuspecting Peter and everything that’s important to him—his reputation, his career…his very life.

My thoughts:

This was a very intense thriller which kept my interest throughout. I liked how Peter knew something was wrong and that Ed was somehow involved even if he didn't know exactly what was going on. I also liked the way the point of view switched from third person (Ed) to first person (Peter).
