Publisher's Summary

When successful neurosurgeon John Macandrew performs a routine operation, the patient undergoes a severe personality change post-surgery. The diagnosis is a rare condition called Hartman's Tumour, which leaves its victims deranged and destined to be confined to mental institutions. Blamed by the patient's husband for the dreadful outcome, Macandrew retreats to his native Scotland to lick his wounds. It is there that he makes new discoveries about the mysterious illness and the chemical that induces it. Armed with this new knowledge, Macandrew thinks he may be able to save his patient, until he discovers someone is deliberately using the chemical to regress selected individuals and gain eyewitness accounts of past events.

OK listen

The narration was good, and I liked the story. But I thought the end was a bit flat, but it was OK. Not my highest recommendation here, but it's worth a listen if the idea intrigues you.

- Lia "I love all genres of books. However, when I listen to audio books as I clean, garden, drive they are better with a lot of heat!"

Past Lives

I thoroughly enjoyed this book, and will recommend it to my friends. The first chapter was a little slow, but then it got interesting and held my interest to the end.
