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.
Another point to note about our protagonist is that unlike other series heroes, his actions are believable, even in environments where you wouldn't normally think so. From knowing about airplane details to boarding across the salt flats, his actions never jarred me loose from the plot because his actions were well within the confines of his expected abilities. Also, the interjections of humor (a jar of salami?) peppered about were perfectly timed amidst the tension. Finally, the end had an expertly tailored catharsis that left me immediately wishing to read the next escapade that our good Dr. is going to get in to.
In summary, if anyone else is looking for a bang up novel that is on par with the best writers out there, then you can't do any better than this. I've no doubt I'll read it again and keep it in my personal library at least until the next in the series arrives; something that couldn't happen soon enough.
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.
