"This was a book I found very difficult to put down. A fast paced adrenaline packed storyline, laced with philosophical intrigue and discussion that presents many thought provoking questions. The many twists are surprising and gripping, and there are occasional laugh out loud sharp one liners. The best read I have had in a long time."

"I found this to be an outstandingly enjoyable and intelligent book with a well thought out plot and some excellent story lines. It held me riveted throughout with some very pleasing and unexpected twists and turns. Friends who I have recommended it too felt the same. A great read - you won't be disappointed. "
'' A greatly readable book that takes the reader through many breath-holding twists. There is no lull in the edgy sequences that propel one to the final conclusion of this racy tale. It is much in the genre of John Grisham's novels with a morality thread adding tension to relationships. Enjoyable and well researched reflecting the author's knowledge of medical science.''
