great story line; unnecessary love affair
I liked the story line and underlying theme. Great suspense and drama, integrated with interesting medical and technical backdrop. But the whole thing was spoiled because of the totally unnecessary, woefully predictable, and wholly gratuitous love affair, between the intellient and wealthy protagonist and bumbling "hunk type" security guard. The "Sappy" love affair sticks out, and distracts from the interest and intrigue otherwise generated by the otherwise intreguing substance underlying the story line.

Excellent portrayal of two characters dealing with Aspergers syndrome. The story was not about their Aspergers per se, but instead the Aspergers made for fascinating characters in a medical mystery.
I do have a medical background, but you don't have to be a medical person to follow the story, although the more you know, the more passionate you may feel about the storyline. Palmer explains everything in layman's terms so nothing is lost. His topics are generally hot buttons in the medical world, often on the injustices of insurance or medical politics.
My imagination is a lot like Michael Palmer so I love his books. The narrator was great. I didn't feel like he was reading and there was a lot of expression in his voice.
I highly recommend this book. Fun, interesting, suspenseful, page turner. :)
