Having long admired Tom Conti as a fine British actor, I was expecting a great deal from his attempt as a Novelist, I was very disappointed.
I must admit to only reading 55 pages of his novel 'The Doctor', what could have been a good story, was derailed by the main protagonist Hal's sexploits with Francesca & Lorna. There was also a lot of profanity which got very boring.
My layman's advice is Tom don't give up your day job.

I almost stopped reading this book because the characters were annoying. As I slogged on the story became more intriguing. It turned out to be quite gripping with many unpredictable twists and turns. A cracking good read.
