The end, when it finally comes, is unexpected to say the least and if you think you have sussed out who set-up the good Consultant, or indeed why, then you still won't guess the ending... A good one for Summer holiday reading and whilst also praying that you never, ever get admitted to the hospital where this thriller is set * SHOTS Magazine * This is an immensely engrossing read, yes there's a lot of medical jargon, but it's all explained in layman's terms, the characters are all so well developed thanks to Hugh Montgomery's writing, it has a sense of reality and no small amount of tension. The ending is marvelously shocking and yet understandable...if you like House or Grey's anatomy you are going to love this * Orlando Book Blog * There were lots of characters who had reasons to hate Trenchard and several red-herrings thrown in to keep the reader on their toes and once again, I didn't work out what happened until the reveal. A great medical thriller which I would recommend * Compulsive Readers * But it is a novel with a solid foundation in authenticity and impeccable knowledge. There is an well drawn sense of place and it's setting is vivid in the mind's eye. The addition to detail is apparent from the start and it grounds the events in an uncomfortable reality, which makes its unfolding events even more chilling. With a well paced plot and believable dialogue, this is a snappy and intriguing thriller that will keep you guessing right up to the last sentence. * Book Bound Blog *
