This is a story of our time; Do big pharmaceutical companies have the power to manipulate and corrupt individuals, or governments? When getting drugs to market is based on commercial gain not patient welfare we had better start taking notice. This would be a David and Goliath scenario for most individuals, but what if they (the Pharma) tick off a terrorist? IRA hit-men were not known for their forgiveness.
Having fallen victim to an IRA bombing in Northern Ireland it wasn't difficult for me to recognise the thought process of Kieran Kelly, the main character. I also know several victims of, the not so rare disease, Arachnoiditis and am witness to their suffering.
So in my opinion this thriller is a great read that opens up a true life can of worms, it is informative with a great story line, and having read about the author, can tell it was written from the heart.
This book had the benchmark of all great thrillers. Fantastically paced and deeply researched subject matter(unfortunately from personal experience from the author). The depth of the characters in the book makes it even more interesting, and you just cant help yourself to go to bed 30 minutes later than planned, to be late for work, and even postponing going out for a beer to just get through another chapter.
I shall look forward with vigour to reading Mr Radford's other books, and can highly recommend readers who enjoy this genre that they will not be disappointed by this excellent book. Out of ten? I'd give it a 12!!!! Enjoy
Superb Medical Drama
Roger Radford does it again with this superb medical drama, which literally touches raw nerves.
His power to describe excruciating pain could only come from first-hand experience - you have to wait until the very end to learn of the devastating personal trauma which led him to write Cry of the Needle, and too many people will be out there identifying with this tragic expose.
Not recommended for `hospital bed' reading, but if you like powerful, gritty, suspenseful writing, then this is for you!
That aside, I implore anyone who fancies a well-paced thriller to read this book...
