This was the first Stephen Dunbar book which I read and I was pleased to find that as a result of the excellent descriptions given by the author, it was possible to enjoy this well crafted medical thriller out of chronological order.

The book was so good that I have sought out McClure's other Stephen Dunbar novels and have begun reading the entire series. The first book in the series is called "Donor" and is also a very engaging read. Donor: Steven Dunbar Series, Book 1 (Dr Steven Dunbar 1)

In short, Ken McClure has created not only a new hero, but also a new organisation ("Sci Med") which seeks to protect UK citizens as a result of its investigative work.

This is a new breed of medical thriller and I am happy to recommend it to all my friends.

Having discovered this author recently I have been reading a number of his books back to back, and this one was probably my least favourite. Good but not great. It was also the first and only book by this author where I worked out how and why pretty early on. Still a good read, plague, medical mysteries, intrigue, murder - just what you need for the holiday.

Yet another great book from Ken McClure. I really don't know why this man is not more famous!

A medical themed thriller / mystery. If you read one Ken McClure book you will read more.

Could this happen in real life? If you have enough money, probably.

I would definitely recommend this book.

What is there left to say about the author's Steven Dunbar series? As with all Ken McClure's books, it is a totally un-put-downable read. Superbly detailed, cleverly crafted and utterly gripping from the first page to the last. I could go on and on...but I won't. Just get out there and buy it. If you've read any other McClure books, you'll know you're in for a treat. If you're new to the author,you'll be so delighted you read this review and bought the book.

Another exciting book starring Steven Dunbar. Raised interesting conspiracy theories on how the very powerful may exert their influence to ask favours of friends to protect their own relatives whatever the cost to others.

Readers first meet the hero of this novel in Chapter 13. And the really big mystery is never actually resolved. A high body count of completely innocent people while the high-and-mighty guilty get off scott-free. Apart from one evil stooge. Very well written story that keeps readers interested. And very middle class. For some bat-crazy reason part of this novel takes place in Camp Bastion making it read like it was a suburb of Plymouth. Generally the locations make Britain seem like a really fascinating place to visit and for me that was by far the most skillfull part of the writing.

I like the way this author researches the latest medical articles and bases his books around them. This one is based around the controversy about the cause of the Black Death - bubonic plague (a bacteria caused illness) or an unknown virus.
The leading specialist into this, Dr John Mottram, is also asked to assess a sample of blood for compatibility between 'a donor' and Patient X for suitability to have a bone marrow transplant for leukaemia.
The story, as usual, has twists and turns and Steven Dunbar appears around Ch 13 to look into why Dr Mottram had an 'unfortunate accident' in the Scottish Borders while undertaking some research into his Black Death theory and how it is linked to Patient x and his transplant. We are not told who Patient x actually is, though it isn't hard to guess, and there are a few loose ends not tied up as is also now usual with Mclure books..
I enjoyed the book in spite of much of it being predictable (I've read all the rest in the series as far as this one). The storylines follow a set pattern but are none the less enjoyable for me, though readers who like more variety might be getting tired of the format. I hope that the next book, written after Dr D has left Sci Med has a bit more originality. And Tally, what happened next????? I hope we find out.
I've taken off the star as I'm getting tired of minor story-lines runing from one book to another without being resolved, even though the main story is a stand-alone and very enjoyable.
