Promise Me Eternity is a mystery novel by Ian Fox. Dr. Simon Patterson is a workaholic neurosurgeon. By day he performs life-saving surgeries and by night he is researching an antiaging vaccine. His wife feels very neglected and deals with that by spending money they don't have. One night he saved the life of a local mobster and his life goes into a downward spiral and changes forever.
I enjoyed reading this book. It had action, drama, mystery, and suspense. The story was very engaging and I couldn't wait to see how it ended.
I liked Simon. He was such a brilliant Dr. but he was a complete idiot when it came to his personal life and women. This is not uncommon.
I liked this book and recommend it.
