Jan Smolders shares this gripping tale about a corrupt system of doctors during an HIV epidemic in the Dominican Republic. Will Carla, who saw too much, be okay after going on the lam? I felt as if I was in the Caribbean standing on the sidelines with my mouth agape as these perils unfolded. Many others are pulled into this whole chain of events and luckily Tim and Silvia have each other to ride out the storm.
Jan Smolders is a thrilling writer and I highly recommend Ripping the Veil.

I received this book from GoodReads and was throughly entertained by the fast pace! The characters were amusing, believable, horrid all depending on the plot of the book. I will now be looking for another book by Jan Smolders to read! I could not wait for the next chapter and they were small chapters, which I prefer.
Thanks for a very interesting and delightful novel!

This book was well written, a great story and held promise - but I would have liked more depth.

I liked the short punchy chapters and the intensity of the plot and the characters, but I felt it could have laid things on a bit thicker.

A really good read - but I would have liked a little more grit and a little more depth - that I feel there was plenty of scope for.

The beginning of the book hooked me in but the rest fell flat for me. The subject was intriguing. None of the characters, however, stood out for me and I couldn't understand the chemistry between them. I got through the book just so I could start another.
