it was amazing
Read from April 20 to 22, 2012

Really enjoyed this medical thriller. The main character rang true as did the background. The setting brought Rankin to mind; not surprising since it is rainy Edinburgh, and the writing is as competent and engaging.
Particularly liked the way the minor characters were now and again brought more in to focus so that the reader begins thinking, obviously he must be involved. All the best mysteries and whodunits do this.
Also very much liked the few paragraphs about Tom’s father which added depth to the Scottish background.
All in all an enjoyable and well-constructed romp. I found it several degrees better than his ‘Past Lives’ which I recently read. The only thing, and this totally personal, was the motorbike and leathers. Clever Tom should have decided to come in out of the rain and climb into a car.
