Janessa McNeil’s husband, Dr. Brock McNeil, a researcher and professor at Stanford University’s Department of Medicine, specializes in tick-borne diseases, especially Lyme. For years he has insisted that Chronic Lyme Disease doesn’t exist. Even as patients across the country are getting sicker, the committee Brock chairs is about to announce its latest findings, which will further seal the door shut for Lyme treatment.

One embittered man sets out to prove Dr. McNeil wrong by giving him a close-up view of the very disease he denies. The man infects Janessa with Lyme, then states his demand: convince her husband to publicly reverse his stand on Lyme, or their young daughter will be next.

But Janessa’s marriage is already rocky. She’s so sick she can hardly move or think. And her husband denies she has Lyme at all.

Quotes & Awards

  • “This book stayed with me long after I put it down. Not only was it a page-turner, but the storyline about Lyme disease was fascinating and eye-opening. Over the Edge will raise awareness about this horrible disease and validate those who suffer with it.”

    Terri Blackstock, New York Times bestselling author

  • Over the Edge will draw you in early and keep you glued until the end with an unexpected twist. Humans can only be pushed so far, then they react. This is an excellent fictional portrayal of that frustration felt by so many right now in North America as medical professionals and researchers become pitchmen for corporations who do not have your good health at heart.”

    Jim Wilson, president, Canadian Lyme Disease Foundation

  • Over the Edge is an excellent mystery. I got involved in the story, and instead of my usual thirty-minute read before bed, I finished the book in four evenings. Over the Edge actively portrays the patient with the myriad symptoms seen in acute or chronic Lyme. This is especially true for those patients not fortunate enough to know about testing or find a Lyme-literate physician.”

    Dr. Nick S. Harris, president and CEO of IGeneX, Inc.

Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Audra | 2/20/2014

    " One of the best Brandilyn Collins books. I have always loved the way she writes and although a christian author she has a twisted mind. Over the Edge is by far one of her best. I never knew the issues dealing with Lyme disease and the controversies surrounding it. After reading this book I had to go online and research the topic. The book was so informative and emotional. A great mystery. I think I will read it again!!! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lyndi | 2/17/2014

    " Really scary, but good book. I learned a lot about Lyme disease and the Lyme wars that I knew nothing about. I really felt sorry for Jannie, as her husband was a real piece of work. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Barbara | 2/5/2014

    " I loved this book for light reading. The author 's style is like Joy Fielding's books. Very fast movingI liked the development of her characters and the basis for the book, Lyme Disease and its controversies. I was extremely ill for a long period of time and her descriptions of her symptoms, her thoughts on being ill and her experiences with the medical profession were dead on. I would definitely venture into another advernture with Brandilyn Collins. "

    " As a Chronic Lyme patient I could identify with the main character and some of her experiences. Figured out who done it midway through though. Perhaps because I worked in the medical field most of my life? "
