At a particular place in the book he has compared scientific thinking with democracy, free speech etc. Some places he has described about UFO sightings, discovery of medicines. He has also explained the scientific approach to solve a question. And I will read it again. ...more
This is the third book in The Clifton Chronicles series. The story continues from where it left off. I am highly impressed by the way the plot is taking the turn. The author is really a brilliant story teller. Also in this series there is a quite lot to learn about the British culture around the 2nd world war era. Harry Clifton and Emma Barrington are now getting older and Sebastian Clifton has started appearing in this book now.
The book ended at a very critical juncture and it will be interesting to read the next part to find out what happened to Sebastian and his friend Bruno....more

This book is a little slow in progression and the author has successfully maintained the mystery for around 75% of the book. The plot is not unique, but the involvement of Mafia and drugs in this plot is done in a very good way. We could see a similar plot in one of the other books by Robin Cook – Coma, albeit in a different way. It looks like people can go to any length for meeting the demand and supply curve in the organ transplant ‘business’.
The story revolves around the drug overdose related deaths of upscale people in good professions. And then there were many homicides Queens area. The young pathologist Laurie Montgomery found a pattern and initiated an investigation on her own which got her fired from the job, and made her run for her life. ...more
The book starts off well and it was looking real good and had me excited as to what is coming up next. However, over the next few pages and then the rest of the book, it was looking like quite a few missing places.
For example, a third year medical student, first day in the surgery and just by looking at a young coma patient she got so disturbed that she started raising questions on the capabilities of the doctors treating her, asking questions about what medications are being given etc etc. Perhaps the character was extra emotional, but that is not a good sign for a doctor. A doctor is supposed to be emotionally detached from their patient, else they may not treat them well.
Next, undertaking an private investigation into the reasons of coma, all by herself and going to extremes such as posing as a nurse, getting computer data by faking the request form, and then climbing on the roof top of operation theatre to find out not sure what.
However, it was a decent read, even though there were some loose points. Also it gave an insight into hospital politics. ...more
The latest action in the Scarecrow series. Another very fast and rapidly moving novel by Matthew Reilly. This book has many new scientific research and a robot to help Scarecrow achieve his objective. While he is helped by his old friend David Fairfax, ‘Mother’ fights along with him. Unlike other books, this books has quite some details of torture techniques and also introduces us to a new villain, who escaped by the end of this book, so we may see him again.
Highly recommended read for fast paced action fans.
