Pot boiler plot and more than a little melodramatic. Pharmaceutical companies offer plausible villainy.

My comment above was my initial impression of the book. I'm glad I decided to go ahead and finish the story. It was more complex, engaging and fun than my first impression led me to feel it would be. Not a great book but good escapist mystery with plenty of twists and a well constructed sting.
Started kinda slow but the pacing picked up towards the middle. Turned out to be a good read. Interesting ending. I have never guessed it.
