This Riot Recommendation of favorite medical thrillers is sponsored by Dark Pattern by Andrew Mayne.

How can he catch a killer when his own mind is playing tricks? Dr. Theo Cray had a knack for catching serial killers until a mind-altering pathogen knocked him off his game. Luckily, his former professor is helping him track down his latest suspect: a nomadic health-care worker with hundreds of victims. Cray follows each new lead, but with his own grip on reality slipping away, he knows that he’ll find what he’s hunting only if he confronts his own dark side. The Naturalist series by Andrew Mayne continues with a twisted new psychological thriller. Read Dark Pattern.
