Publisher's Summary

A dark and gripping debut psychological thriller with a horrifying premise and a stinging twist.
Alex Taylor wakes up tied to an operating table. The man who stands over her isn't a doctor. The choice he forces her to make is utterly unspeakable. But when Alex re-awakens, she's unharmed - and no one believes her horrifying story.
Ostracised by her colleagues, her family and her partner, she begins to wonder if she really is losing her mind. And then she meets the next victim.
So compulsive you can't stop listening. So chilling you won't stop talking about it.

Taylor-made Thriller

What a captivating start this book has. Imagine, being strapped to an operating table at the complete mercy of a mysterious stranger and Lawler ups the ante considerably with the ensuing interaction between captor and captive. It's an excellent premise and Lawler builds on it with a careful laying of characters and plot. Like most thrillers there is reliance on coincidence but there are also some clever touches and twists part-based on deeper medical knowledge.

At times I felt some points within the book could have taken additional text to flesh them out a little more but that's probably me being fussy because it's an exciting ride to the end. One person who wasn't hanging around is the narrator Zara Ramm who seemed to be in a touch too much of a hurry to get through the book at the start. Either I got used to her pace or she calmed down though because I felt more comfortable after a while through the book.

In short, enjoyable thriller, decent debut. Good medical knowledge added to the mix.
