This was a great book. I LOVED the details he included about the medical situations. You can tell it was an earlier book but it had all the essentials including the twists we all love.
As always, Michael Crighton keeps you wanting to read just a few more pages befor you plan to put it down. Then before you realize it, it's three in the morning and you have to be to work by seven.
This is Chrichton's first novel and it's a very good one at that. The book is set pre-Roe v. Wade and deals with the ethics of abortion from the perspective of those in the medical community. A great read.
This book will keep you guessing until the mystery is revealed.
In the 1960's, a doctor is accused of performing an illegal abortion that led to the death of a patient, the daughter of a respected surgeon from a prominent family. His best friend, a pathologist, tries to clear his name. Who performed the abortion, and is there a conspiracy to hide the truth? This is an excellent mystery and I highly recommend it. It is very readable and you will be hooked early on.
I am a nurse so I loved this book. A doctor tries to find what killed a young girl. A good medical mystery. Fascinating writer.
