This non-stop action packed thriller takes you into the lives of several individuals intimately involved in creating and possessing an anti-aging drug. The character development is superb. By the end of the book, I felt like knew the characters personally. I can't wait to see how Mary McKenna's and Michael Tiernan's lives intertwine in the next novel. The politics and greed of the pharmaceutical companies are all too real. Even though this is a fiction novel, it gets you thinking - if there was an anti-aging drug - would I take it? There is a lot to talk about here!

This was an excellent read. I couldn't put it down. Many of the scientific references are taken from the pages of today's newspapers and really makes you think. It raises many questions about the advances of science, its impact on the environment and the moral issues surrounding these scientific advances. It does so quite intricately, while not being preachy or too medical. The facets of the story reveal the many layers of our human nature and our tendencies towards self-interest and self-preservation with surprising moments of altruism. I especially enjoyed the character Lori Adams. She was delightful and even when she was diabolical, you just cheered her on. I truly loved the characters in this book. I don't want to write too much and give the story away. This is a quick read and I recommend it highly. Truly enjoyable!

I don't understand all of the great reviews. This book was poorly written, and read like a screenplay wannabe. It was too short to cram all of the necessary details into it, and the ending was disappointing. If there is a sequel, I doubt I will read it. I got the impression that the author was writing under a timeline crunch, and submitted a half done novel. However, the plot was excellent, albeit one in which other authors have ventured. I love medical thrillers, which is how I would classify this book, but it was less than thrilling.

Poorly written, with too many cliches and purple prose. Badly edited as well. Author needs help.

This book wasn't very good at all. After reading all the glowing reviews, I just had to put in my two cents worth. It was amateurishly written, poorly edited, and badly formatted. The characters were one-dimensional for the most part. The dialog was so inane, it made me wince. The plot was unoriginal. The book was littered with spelling and grammatical errors. To top it off, someting was wrong with the formatting. There were pages missing! I know this book was inexpensive, but don't call it good.

I like a book that keeps me guessing and I could not predict where the story would go. I was surprised more than once and that is hard to do!!! Hope he plans to continue the story with another book!!!!
