Thanks for the review, it sounds like a great medical thriller that's so much more than that. I've put it on my ''to read'' list, hoping I'll find some time to read it. It will be interesting to see what it is about, the concept seems very refreshing and unique.

Medical fiction combined with thrillers. A cool read. It would be lovely to craft a book on a particular disease like this author and make it to come out truly enchanting. Great book review.

I agree. I am not the type of person who jumps into a book full of medical terminology. However, based on your review, this is something I might read. Thank you for your review.

This looks like a must-read to me! I've been looking for a good medical thriller that isn't "Robin Cook-esque" - one that differs from his horribly set pattern (a pattern that new writers seem to emulate). And it has a twist! Even better. Thanks for the description of this one! I must download it.

I'm a sucker for every book that is well written because such gems are hard to spot and not every book is written in an apt manner. Thanks for helping me find something to add to my reading list.

I loved your review, I felt like I was watching a movie! I'm so glad I've read it because now I'm going to put this book on my wishlist and read it (probably overnight). I hope the author has written more books like this one.

I love medical thrillers. The details and insight into the field are what I enjoy the most. Its so cool to get to learn about different careers and understand more about all the aspects and people that are involved in an investigation. I look forward to reading this and I live finding new authors and books in this genre. Thanks for the recommendation.

Medical thrillers are always very detailed. Going through this review was like seeing a movie, play on a screen. Increases knowledge about new and few terminologies used in Medicine.
A very insightful review

I know this was written several years ago now, but I'm impressed by the thoroughness of this review. The fact that you had to consult a medical dictionary to look up some of the terms in the book tells me that the story wouldn't necessarily flow as well for someone unfamiliar with such terms. That said, such terminology also shows that the author has done their homework to make the story more realistic. Very good summary overall here.

Great review. This story sounds reminiscent of the Andromeda Strain, and I loved that book. I'm not a massive fan of the medical genre on the whole either, but this sounds like an exception.
