Books about government, medicine and economic crime are dull and boring, aren't they? Wrong!
This one is a taut, gripping tale with likable heroes AND villains, that brings an inside look to the dynamics of investigating the medical world. I wouldn't have thought I would like it, but this is really a book worth reading!

Beginning on page one, I thought this was going to be a great read. I wasn't disappointed. It's fast paced, intelligent and sprinkled with enough humor to balance the tension and mystery. The medical setting added an interesting backdrop to what should be a sterile world - not the case. I found myself drawn to the complex plot, the fascinating medical detail well researched and a tribute to the author's credentials. I particularly liked Charlotte Westbrook - she's a believable inspector, and not the police department type, but more the Sherlock Holmes variety. You feel like you are "walking in her shoes". Sperber delivers a engaging and gripping novel on the same level as Paterson, Cornwell and Grisham's earlier work.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
