My Review

This killer thriller blood-spiller does beg the question, how far would you go to save someone you love, especially your own child. Would you kill? There has to be a heavy price to pay, and this book does not disappoint in that aspect. It's not a book for the faint hearted, but it is a well crafted tale of a couple whose child has a rare brain disease with no cure, or at least no legal cure. Different, but that's what I look for in a good suspense thriller. As Shakespeare said, "Revel the night, rob, murder, and commit the oldest sins the newest kind of ways?" (Henry IV, Part 2)
