This is a riveting novel, extremely well written, with a delicious hero (who's even funny despite the chilling plot afoot), and lots of great -- and accurate -- medical information. As a veteran ER nurse, I appreciate the authenticity, and Dr. Chase's ability to present the threat he exposes here, without the over-the-top (and completely fictional) aspects so often found in other medical 'thrillers'. Am eager to read his next book.

Dr. Chase has written a terrific book. He obviously knows what he's talking about. As an ICU specialist, there's no doubt that the chilling scenario he presents could happen (easily). A must read!

Dr. Chase's many years of medical practice and teaching (as indicated on the back cover) certainly show in the crafting of this suspenseful tale. As a female physician, I just loved the way he weaved the dead-on characterizations with an encyclopedic knowledge of medicine. As a physician (cardiovascular surgeon), I don't ordinary read medical novels - it's a bit of a postman's holiday - but I did pick this one up on the recommendation of a friend. If you like thrillers, you'll love this one.

The initial story is adequate, but the Mr. Chase lacks understanding in the scope of practice for medical students. I am an Intensive Care Nurse with 13 years experience in a LARGE teaching hospital. The medical students I've known in all that time wouldn't know where medications were kept, much less attempt to administer those medications themselves. Mr. Chase presents women in a very limited role. I hope that the women in Mr. Chase's upcoming novel will prove to show that his notion of women, their motivation and their thought processes are not purely based on self-gratification.
