Fatal insomnia from not being able to put the book down.

Fatal insomnia! A real hook, an obscure disease that changes who and what you are. Characters, it is so easy to say doctor and plug in a doctor. Gangster, ruthless businessman, cop. All these could be stereotypes but CJ Lyons goes under the skin to show who they are in a way that you can care about even the worst person.
If you don't care about the people then you don't care about the story. Angela Rossi is a passionate skilled ER doctor and she is losing everything."Farewell to Dreams" is a great title, it sums up how Angela feels as her life spirals out of control.
In this story and the sequel "Raging Dawn" you are shown pieces of a puzzle, only not all the pieces fit. It might be that there is more than one puzzle. What is obvious might not be the reality. Even at the finish you keep learning more.
When you finish Farewell to Dreams it is a complete story but you really can;t wait for the next story to reveal itself. Anne Chaconas at Bad Ass Marketing gave me the chance to read the sequel "Raging Dawn" and that book was every bit as tight and suspenseful as the first book. There are surprises and even hints that some things that were completed in the first book may not be as finished as you thought.
Darn, now I want to read the next book and it probably isn't even written yet.
