I came across this novel by chance and how thankful am i.
Having not read the surgeon first i thought i was going to struggle reading this book, and undoubtdly it would have helped build up some of the tension in areas but personaly i think you can survive without.
It's still a hair raiser with twists and turns that make you read on through out the night, once you've finished you immediatly want it to carry on and find out what happens with certain characters.
One of the best reads ever and i certainly will be continuing with the series. =]
This is the follow up to "The Surgeon" and it does not dissapoint. To be honest, it might have been an idea to call it The Surgeon part 2, but thats not to say its not worth reading. The story basically picks up from where it left off, and starts at a good pace and keeps it throughout. All of the charachters are believable, old and new. Enjoyed it very much.
