The story is excellent. The narration is good, except for frequent mispronunciation. "Defribillation" instead of "defibrillation," "epipinephrine" instead of "epinephrine," and "respitory" instead of "respiratory," just to name a few. Doesn't detract from the story, but is an annoyance and a distraction.

I have always loved Michael Palmer books. I discovered them when new Robin Cook books were not released fast enough. I really cannot tell the difference between Robin Cook and Michael Palmer. Now Daniel Palmer has joined the mix and it was as smooth as any transition to a new author could be. My only complaint (and the reason for a 4 instead of a 5) is that the theme of this book (conspiracy between hospitals/insurance companies to increase profits) is a little overdone. Although I still enjoy them, I would really like to see another twist added. Having said that, the characters were really good, even if (as usual), I wanted to scream at Julie for not recognizing what was happening sooner and doing something about it. In some ways, these books are a little of a stretch in providing that the evil people always know every move, every conversation, and almost every thought of the protaginists. At times, I felt like saying "NOT AGAIN," because so much of the plot is completely predictible. I must say, however, I still enjoy them and will continue to listen to them, even if they are sometimes a little repeititive and predictible. Without spoiling anything, I was pleased to see the author was not afraid to introduce some realism (death) into the mix without becoming maudlin. Highly recommend to anyone who, like me, has become hooked on these medical novels.
