Great read! Kept me glued to my set! A suspenseful story about a troubled Doc who's given a second chance to prove himself at the state-of-the-art Boston Heart Institute. After finding discrepancies with a new drug, he takes on a big pharma company with lots of twists& turns.
I especially love how Palmer seamlessly weaves the scientific and medical stuff throughout the story in such a way that even someone like me with limited medical knowledge can understand.
A definite must read!!
Good read ... Ienjoyed it ... but ... a bit long in the telling ... I looking forward to reading some ore recent works by Coben ... this is an early one (his early 20s) and while the idea is great, the book is just 'good' ... don't skip it ...
Great book if you like twists and turns. If you have a medical background and enjoys mystery and thrilling suspense, this is for you. There is a lot of medical reference that relates to the turn of events. Good read for a plane ride.
