Product Description

Book Description

A medical thriller in the bestselling tradition of Robin Cook

From the Back Cover

Toby Nelms is eight years old. He has had a routine operation, and everything went fine. Toby is now back home - and his life is filled with terror. Months have passed since the operation but Toby continually bursts into tortured screams. Something is very wrong. Toby relives every horrifying detail of the surgery - all the trauma, all the pain - while he's awake.

Now neurosurgeon Zack Iverson must discover why Toby can remember every moment of the operation and what terrible secret is being hidden by the hospital where Toby was a patient.

And Toby isn't the only one who is experiencing this terror. Dr Iverson must find out the truth - and quickly - before an innocent child dies, and before another patient is wheeled into the operating theatre, to experience, again and again, every slice of the scalpel...

Format: Paperback
Flashback is a novel with a medical theme. The main characters appear to have little in common - a young boy and an eminent cardiologist.
The link turns out to be in the operating theatre in which they both had treatment.If you are looking for a book to engage your attention and make you think , this is the one for you. A mixture of romance, mystery and medical ethics make it hard to put down before the end.

Not one of Micheal Palmer's better books. The story started in the usual gripping way, but fell flat in certain places, but however, built up to a dramatic conclusion.
The plot may not be as exciting as in some of his earlier novels, but is certainly well worth the read. Well thought out and as usual excellently written. Love, drama, suspense, this one's got it all!

This is the 5th book of Palmer's that I have read and I really enjoyed all of them. From the begining I couldn't put it down. I found myself constantly trying to second guess what would happen next only to find another plot opening. I would recommand this book to anyone, but not to someone who might be having an operation in the near future. It certain made me think and I live with a doctor!

I love every single one of Michael Palmer's books. They all keep me one the edge of my seat, especially Natural Causes, Extreme Measures and The Sisterhood. These books were so brilliantly written that I was scared out of my mind. They all kept me sitting on the edge of my seat. Want to know the best part? I couldn't put any of them down, I tune everything else in the world out and only focus on the suspense I have right in front of me. In Flashback, and eight year old Toby has a surgery and everything goes well. Months go by and then Toby begins to relive what happened to him in the OR. He is tormented with visions of everything transpired during the surgery, everything, including the immense pain. Unfortunately Toby isn't the only patient who is experiencing this bizarre effect after the operation. Other patients who has gone this weird twist of events haven't been able to live with the terror, so they kill themselves. Soon someone will reach the conclusion that something unusual is transpiring at the hospital. If that person doesn't hurry there will be some disastrous affects. If they do not hurry, another patient will be wheeled into the OR, none the wiser to the terror and torment that awaits them there.

If you like medical thrillers, you're going to enjoy this one. The plot is nail-biting, even scary at times. Furthermore, Mr Palmer being a medical doctor himself, the material is carefully researched and utterly credible. A very good read.
