    1. Another medical mystery from one of the masters of the genre. An exciting and easy read. It has dated a little, computer discs too large to carry and as for mobile phones I don't think they had been invented when this book was written. Despite this there are still some relevant themes e.g. issues surrounding AIDS and the increasing centralisation of the NHS. The introduction of the female character to add a touch of romance certainly stretches the imagination. Regular readers of Ken McClure woul [...]

    2. Once again Ken McClure writes a striking medically-themed crime/mystery novel. This is possibly the best book I have read whilst taking part in the 6 book challenge (don't let this disillusion you - it was the best of the 38 books I have read in the last 4 months!)– the story was a little slow to get going, but once it did, it dragged you along like a freight train, and there were no stops to get off! Very intriguing medical thriller about a jaded journalist’s suspicions about a new roll out [...]

    3. I loved this book - right up to the last page. It's fast, the plot is plausible enough, and since it was written the basis has become even more of an issue. The reader knows just enough more than the characters to understand what's going on without getting frustrated by their obtuseness, and involved enough with them to be urging them on. Which is why, for me, the last page spoils it and reduces the star rating. If you like your reading matter to be tidy and all issues resolved, this is not the [...]

    4. This was my first try at Ken McClure - thoroughly enjoyed a good plot and the ending was unexpected and could not put down.

    5. Please someone tell me this was the first book in a series! It was such an awesome book but the ending - WOW!!! I need more!

    6. I bought this book because it was cheap on and set in my home town of Newcastle. However, the book could have been set anywhere as there was no reference to any locations or landmarks in the city, which I was a bit disappointed in. Aside from that, a great read about something a bit different - I've read a few books in the crime/thriller genre recently and they can get a bit samey, but this one was about a conspiracy in the health service, offering plenty of twists and turns as the plot unravel [...]

    7. The first half was a little slow and I wished for it to speed up, but I really liked the characters. It picked up well, but the ending left me frustrated though
