A former medical detective for the Centers for Disease Control, Dr. Nate McCormick had seen enough suffering to last a lifetime. Now he's left the CDC, determined to begin a new life with his girlfriend in San Francisco...until the vicious murder of a biotech researcher, an old friend, hurtles him back into the medical world he's left behind. While the police hunt for a killer, Nate starts sifting through evidence, determined to find what his friend did to provoke his brutal death. And the truth he ultimately discovers far exceeds the very worst he had imagined.

As a circle of treachery tightens around Nate, and the woman he loves is thrust into the line of fire, patients surface with agonizing stories to tell. Nate is about to make the most startling discovery of all: a secret alliance between crime, science, and a billion-dollar industry determined to hide its victims at any price. For Nate, that price will be the one person most important to him - unless he can expose the flaw in a perfect conspiracy of medicine and murder.

From shocking evidence revealed under a microscope to the shattering testimony of those betrayed by the ruthlessness of the medical industry, Flawless takes us on a terrifying, adrenaline-charged journey. Taut, thrilling, and relentless, it will leave you pondering its questions long after the final sentence.

    " Liked the book but really nothing jumps out at me to give it a better rating. the strange thing is even though the main character goes through a load of crap. I still wonder .. is ever going to get a job? "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Barb | 8/22/2012

    " Very gruesome in details, scientific terminology. The story is well told, with the twists and turns making it an interesting story. In light of the trend toward beauty in this country, it's easy to see where this story gets its title! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Perkimom | 6/1/2012

    " I didn't like "Isolation Ward" very much, but I figured I would give the author a chance and read this one. I must say I only managed to read about 75 pages and I was bored and tired, because the main character is such a dumb loser and the plot was shaping out to be the same as the previous book. "

    Facial tumors
    Went on a bit too long. Didn't like the non ending without a tie up. All the characters in the coverup mess are kind of confusing "
