on March 1, 2018 :
Mickey Smith's "Altered" is a taught and suspenseful drama. What happens to Daniel Travers in a deeply hidden underground science lab is as horrible as anything imaginable, despite Travers' seemingly miraculous recovery from certain death due to a top secret experimental cure.
It's one of those cases where "the cure might be worse than the disease."
It's not a genre I normally like -- something in the line of the TV drama "Luke Cage" -- but it is obviously a genre Smith knows well. Once you accept the basic premise, it is highly believable and realistic. Once I was halfway into it I did not want to put it down.
