Chiropractor, David Stichell (Stich), is one of the participants in a trial testing a new drug designed to shrink cancer tumours. The action starts when his fiancée, a scientist working on the same trial, is fatally shot. Escaping with a gunshot wound to the leg, Stich goes on the run from both the police and the criminals who want him dead.
A fast and furious medical thriller, gripping from start to finish. Twists and turns galore, this is one of those books that plays like a movie in your head.
Davison's clean, tight writing style lends itself particularly well to this genre.
An impressive debut. I loved it. Michael Palmer and Tess Gerritsen fans will, too.
