Cook is an accomplished author and as most of his novels this holds you from beginning to end.Central characters are very believable with actions and eccentricities that make them easy to identify with. The plot itself has enough action and information to move you briskly as you both decipher the storyline and learn about other cultures and medical tourism.
A good read...4 of 5 stars...
