John doesn't relish the prospect of being back on the treadmill, working within the NHS again, but when he is unwilling to accept his boss' "death from natural causes" diagnosis after autopsies on various bodies, his professional suspicions are piqued.

Fast moving, and easy to follow

I really enjoyed this book and will look for more by Keith McCarthy. The plot was interesting - but not so convoluted that one would get lost in the story - I liked the personalities involved, the plot was well constructed and well written.

The icing on the cake was Sean Barrett's reading, he has a lovely voice, gives his characters different voices, I think he is on of my favourite narrators.

another thrilling performance.

Keith McCarthy and Sean Barrett are an amazingly good amalgamation of good writing and good narration. Sean imparts humour, seriousness, depth and more into Keith's brilliance. going on to the next book now. bye, bye.

Gold! Perfect narrator and superb story

Conflict and more conflict.
A very realistic representation of working relationships, especially medical.
I love the seething undercurrent of suppressed rage - anyone who has worked in a speciality where rank doesn't essentially equate to skill can empathise (through gritted teeth!)
Fabulous. Looking into the rest of the series.
Sean Barrett is king of narrators.
