    Interesting, and Exciting

    This book is set in London, and has a rather intriguing premise--that a surgeon can remove a face, and put it onto another person. In the last year, I believe that at least one such procedure has been performed. Anyway, a crack team of police is enlisted to solve several murders, and Jack Hawksworth is thrown for a loop to find out that one is the woman he has been involved with, and apparently impregnated! Her future fiance is a plastic surgeon. This is rather well developed and psychological. I would read another book by this author, which medical and crime buffs should enjoy. Yes, I would recommend this for book club discussion.

    Great follow upto Bye Bye Baby

    Once again Jack Hawksworth and his team are back on a big case. The twists and turns the reader takes as the story line develops are exciting. This book was hard to put down. Can' t wait to see what's next for Jack.
