Dr. Lilly Reeves is a young, accomplished ER physician with her whole life ahead of her. But that life instantly changes when she becomes the fifth victim of a serial rapist. Believing it's the only way to recover her reputation and secure peace for herself, Lilly sets out to find--and punish--her assailant. Sporting a mysterious tattoo and unusually colored eyes, the rapist should be easy to identify. He even leaves what police would consider solid evidence. But when Lilly believes she has found him, DNA testing clears him as a suspect. How can she prove he is guilty, if science says he is not?

My Review:

 A medical suspense/thriller that kept me up at nights! Redwood's debut novel is riveting. It's like watching a crime drama on television. The pace is frantic, the puzzle pieces confusing until they come together in an explosive 'aha' moment. Redwood draws on her nursing background to weave incredible medical details into the plot. But be forewarned, I also found Proof gritty and disturbing.

Complex characters include two likable heroes which threw the romantic in me for a loop. The heroine, Lilly, is a tortured soul grappling for some semblance of truth in the midst of horrific chaos. I couldn't shake these characters from my mind days after I finished reading. They even invaded my dreams at night!

Intriguing and definitely edgy, Proof deserves a spot on suspense lovers TBR lists.
