    " My first read for this author, and I was pleasantly surprised by his writing style. Kate Bennett, a successful pathologist deals with her struggles of career and family pressure, while trying to understand and stop a deadly new disease. Very intriguing, and a quick read. I would recommend it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Carol | 10/7/2013

    " Palmer's books are always so scary because they could actually happen, all it takes is a few bad apples in the right positions and wam you could be part of the same diaster that was portrayed in this book. Can't say anything more without giving a spoiler clue. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Katrin | 8/20/2013

    " Little slow but good finish! I liked it. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kyle Wright | 8/19/2013

    " It was a good story... Liked the characters but only cared about them when things were happening. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Readridinghood | 6/25/2013

    " I tried to read this book, but it was filled with so much medical turns and information, I felt the plot got lost. Maybe I will try to read it again another time. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Alex | 3/7/2013

    " I liked this book, it was very intriguing. What I didn't like was the bottom line of the whole story - the reason for the womens illness. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Amy Rogers | 1/14/2013

    " 3 star medical thriller (top 50% of the genre). One of Michael Palmer's many reliable, well-constructed, hospital-based thrillers. For my full review, see ScienceThrillers.com "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dawn | 11/9/2012

    " This was another "Oldie but goodie" from Michael Palmer. Aside from the obvious lack of cell phones, the story still feels contempory. Very fast moving, engaging characters, and an unusual twist. Good summer reading. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 doug bowman | 7/1/2012

    " A brilliantly written hospital procedural "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Diane V-R | 4/15/2012

    " If you enjoy Palmer's medical thrillers then this one is a true classic. It's textured, filled with a good dose of drama, suspense and intrigue. And as always...you take something away with you (if you enjoy learning about the body and how it works). "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cassandra | 3/27/2012

    " This book built in intensity like all Michael Palmer books. It was a little predictable and it reminded me of another book he wrote. "

    " I did not like the performer... "

    " Very concerned about the vitamins pills I am taking after reading this book! Terrible stories! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Tim Titolo | 10/27/2011

    " I felt there were too many ill defined sub-plots that kept the story from really moving forward effectively. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Barb | 8/8/2011

    " Would not have finished it had I not been on a road trip. Medical thriller? I think not. "

    " Descobri há pouco tempo este autor e já devorei alguns livros. Policiais do universo médico na mesma linha de Robin Cook, só que agora prefiro Michael Palmer. No problem, tenho espaço para muitos amores! :-)
