A fun, techno-savvy thriller with quite an original premise as well as protoganist. Simon owns a private courier service and is a no-questions-asked, globetrotting delivery man who gets involved with an international pharmaceutical company trying to hide the fact that the thirty-three million users of its wonder weight-loss drug might be risking death due to a fatal side-effect of the medicine. I am definitely looking forward to reading more from this author.

I liked it. The author did a good job of building the entanglement of an independent courier into a cover-up.

Started reading this on the train out to visit a friend, and ended up finishing it the same day. A bit cliched in parts, but enjoyable like a summer blockbuster.
