Cook is, as usual, confortable with both the medical technology, and medical social controversy. And, as he very often does, looks at the pressures of greed and money degrading medical care.

I just started a medical course and so I loved reading the phrases and terminology in "real life" use (as real as a fiction novel can get). Not one of his absolute best, but top 10. Not too many unpronouncable medical terms.

Enjoyable story. Lots of intrigue. Forensic details were interesting. I figured out the casue of the problem early in the book.
