"It is not often that a teller of stories can take a reader on such a wild ride as Dr. Sean Dow has done in his newest book A Leafy Green World. A masterful story of a physician trying to resurrect his career who gets tangled in a world of intrigue and activism. It is a well thought out story that draws you in from the start and keeps you on the edge of your seat until the wild finish. Dr. Dow has the ability to develop characters in a way that you can understand their emotions and actions as the book develops. The plot of the story is fast paced and riveting and keeps you spellbound right up to the end. I have thoroughly enjoyed this book as I did his first book Debridement and can't wait for more stories from this up and coming brilliant author." - Robert G.
