Fresh Frozen by Darden North

REVIEW BLURBS – Fresh Frozen, a novel by Darden North, MD

“Darden North has delivered with his latest. Fresh Frozen is no quick-and-easy ‘beach’ read, but instead makes the reader pause, look deep inside, and question his own ethical and moral standards. North is a talented writer.” Susan O’Bryan, The Clarion-Ledger, Jackson, MS

“North has a talent for creating both believable and absorbing characters. This novel was made for the screen.” Denise Grones, Delta Magazine

“FRESH Frozen should come with a warning label: Insomnia and repetitive motion disorder caused by rapid page turning may result.” Kathy Spurlock, Executive Editor, he News-Star Monroe, LA

“ … an interestingly mixed plot complete with greed, angst, and murder. North has become a master of medical expense.” Nan Graves Goodman Portico Magazine

5 Star Review Published on Audible.com   "A Murder Mystery That Is So Much More"  Darden North’s "House Call" is a murder mystery, but it is so much more. The novel simultaneously tells tales of reverse discrimination, of the treacheries imbedded in diet/anti-depressant pharmaceuticals, of the financial intricacies of the new age of medicine, and of even the psycho-social legacies of Southern miscegenation.

He deftly shifts perspective across a variety of intriguing storylines, all the while marking his prose with astute commentary (“Whether the body or their relationship was natural or unnatural did not seem to matter”). Centered on the young male OB-GYN, Knox Ch…
