This was one of the worst books I’ve read in a long time. One of my patients in the hospital finished it right before he was discharged, so he gave it to me. The plot surrounds a medical student and his pretty nurse sidekick, who discover an evil scheme involving faked research, intentionally-caused cancer, and a conspiracy to extort research money from the unsuspecting victims. The plot is as thin as water, and there is not one believably-written character. Don’t waste your money.
