This was a book by author and former M.D., Michael Palmer. As you might have guessed it was a medical thriller. Spoiler alert: Specifically it was about a new drug that was being released which had some bad side effects and didn't actually work to begin with. This story was written a little while ago, so I doubt anyone these days would even bat an eye at the side effects. Overall the story was ok, but I wouldn't necessarily seek out this author again.
My rating: 3/5
