I tried to get into this book, but the beginning was too slow for me. I actually started it on two separate occassions before I finally gave up for the third time over the duration of the several months I had this book.

Michael Palmer as an internal medicine physician keeps the book moving with medical emergencies and life and death situations. It's fast moving,lots of tension and keeps you guessing until near the end.

This was an intense medical thriller with lots of twists and turns. Just when I thought I knew what caused the problems, Palmer deftly took the story in a new direction.

I don't normally read this type of book, but I decided to read this book because I read some reviews at Amazon and the book seemed interesting. I wasn't disappointed. The book held my interest all the way through which doesn't happen very often.

I liked the aspects of natural medicine in the book since it is an interest of mine. I didn't enjoy the ending as much as the rest of the book, but overall, I was pleased. This book definitely keeps you wanting to come back.
