critical judgment

This medical thriller, written by Michael Palmer, starts off strong but ends on a weak note. It begins by introducing a bunch of patients with undiagnosable illnesses. The first two-thirds to three-quarters of the story was rather interesting–it dealt with a physician trying to figure out what was causing the illnesses (with a local manufacturing company being the prime suspect). But, then it ends with underground tunnels (again!) and government testing of biological weapons on unsuspecting citizens. Whew!

My rating: 3/5
