Publisher's Summary

When Mark Hartmann is asked to perform a post-mortem on a lab assistant killed by cancer, everything looks straightforward. But his initial findings are surprising: Millicent Sweet appears to have died of several different, aggressive tumours. Before he can discuss this with colleagues, he's called to a conference in Scotland. A serious error of judgement gives a pharmaceutical company a handle on him, and they threaten to expose his excesses unless he falsifies his report on Sweet.
Meanwhile, Millicent's father is suspicious about her death and has contacted lawyer Helena Flemming. Her partner, former forensic pathologist John Eisenmenger, uncovers the original post-mortem and deception, and is determined to unearth the reasons behind the pharmaceutical company's actions.

What a great book. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and found myself listening in the car so I could continue the story. Always a sure sign for me as I normally do bedtime reading only. The plot was suspending reality but that was of no matter. It was excellent and drew me into the book very quickly. Absorbing and interesting.
I like long books as i can really get into them and the length on this one was great. Long enough to get the best of the book without getting repetitive.
The narration was crisp, clear and the characters well defined. Audio quality also crisp with no glitches.
If you want a great read that is gripping and well considered, get this book. But watch out, you never know what could happen next.
