Well written, with a crisp pace and fully fleshed-out characters, the story grabs you up and takes you on a whirlwind ride that, for me at least, was quite exhilarating. A kind of 'Frankenstein meets modern technology' story, it kept me engaged from start to finish and, at times, had my heart-rate going at a nice clip. It's very rare that anything I read does that, and it was pleasurable I have to admit.
The author's writing style is much better than the vast majority of the books I've purchased on Amazon, by far, and the story, while not exactly unique, is strong. Like my dad I highly recommend it, especially for readers who like medical related thrillers combined with a little bit of sci-fi.
By H.S. Clark
Wow, I must say that this medical thriller was one of the very best books that I’ve read this month. As I read over 40 books per month that makes this one an excellent read. With exciting characters. The main character Dr. Paul Powers an anesthesiologist has his work cut out for him as the Cascade Killer is taking lives and causing havoc. Officer Jackey McCann and Sgt. Frank Roberts receives the call and find Jenny Walker on the verge of death’s door. She survives only to find herself back at the hospital four months later pregnant with the child of the killer. There is no question that H.S. Clark has the knowledge to write an exciting story. I could not sleep until I had finished this story. There are quite a few twists and turns and it keeps you wondering who could be the killer? One of my favorite lines from the story. “Our efforts to control nature with technology actually propels evolution forward.” And another, “Viruses are like pirate ships in the night, they commandeer the cellular machinery of the host, and turn it to their own use. They insert new DNA and take over the cells of the host.” The character that I liked least in the story was Dr. Arens. The character I liked most was Dr. Paul Powers. One more sentence that I really liked. “That’s the fundamental problem with the scientific method. The more we seek ultimate truth, the further we travel from it.” I rated this story a solid 5 star rating. Well written and I would enjoy reading more by H.S. Clark an extremely talented storyteller.
I’m not usually into medical thrillers, but picked this up after finding the blurb too intriguing to resist. Diving into the first chapter, you find yourself immediately immersed in the fast paced plot of murder mystery means hospital drama, described with enough technical detail to make it convincing and enough emotional punch to make it enveloping. The fact that the author doesn’t have “doctor” at the beginning of his title surprises me.
Dr. Powers has an interesting blend of uncertainty and a drive for truth that you don’t see in many leading medical characters. Within the first chapter, he nearly kills an influential character because of a flub in his examination, and that instantly set a tone for a book that would have me on the edge of my seat for every procedure and plot point following. Yet there’s constantly a sense of intelligence and experience surrounding him that keeps him an intriguing character to watch.
My only complaint is that the writing style could be jittery at times, as if the author lost his train of thought and was just fitting in what felt “pretty okay” for some descriptions. It broke the rhythm at points and required me to reread and contemplate to understand what they were getting at in terms of atmosphere. But overall, the medical terminology was solid and immersive, the tension strong and fast-paced, and the characters truly relatable.
If you’re into medical thrillers, then this book will definitely earn a place on your shelf. If you’re so-so on the genre, then it’s still worth picking up. Just brace yourself; it can get pretty gruesome at points, especially during that abortion scene.
