Review: The Negotiated Death of Sara Glen by Brady Koch


Genre: Psychological Suspense


“The results of an at-home DNA testing kit reveal the key to eradicating an emerging threat. Getting that key may cost Sara her life.”


Prior to this book Brady Koch had authored three collections of short fiction (two of them flash fiction). This book is the first in a series of four novellas with a full-size novel anticipated to follow in the winter of 2023. For more, check out Mr Koch’s blog.


The Covid pandemic has shown us how little many of our fellow humans are willing to do in order to help prevent spreading of a potentially fatal virus. This novella explores the flipside of this. What if all indications were that another pandemic was coming soon with the beginning already happening, the anticipated peak of the pandemic was coming fast, and the anticipated impact was going to be far beyond anything ever seen in the past. But researchers have discovered the route to a cure. Only one problem. That cure requires a contribution from one person, and that person would have to pay the ultimate price to bring the cure to fruition. Now imagine that you’re that person.

As you might imagine, no one is going to find this experience easy. What to do (or not to do) is going to make virtually any somewhat decent person feel torn. That’s the story chronicled here as we follow Sara Glen through this experience.
