“Joe Purpura’s stunning debut features Vince DeLuca, a doctor battling loss and burn out who stumbles onto a sinister plot revealed when his patient mumbles details under anesthesia. Purpura, an MD by training, weaves action and gritty tradecraft but never loses sight of DeLuca’s humanity and the result is a novel that’s impossible to put down."
Jamie Freveletti, award-winning author of the Emma Caldridge series and Robert Ludlum’s The Janus Reprisal
“An exquisitely developed and propulsive novel that delivers high tension, humor, and magnetic characters in equal measure. Code Crisis is not only an addictive read, it shines with the authenticity of the author’s insights into medicine, criminality, and the emotions that make us human.” --
―T.C. Boyle, author of I Walk Between the Raindrops (2022) and PEN/Faulkner Award for Fiction winner World’s End (1987)
