Predictable end, unrealistic plot and irritating tone. The story is of a cop turned journalist, who stumbles his way around, discovering what is happening at a Genetics company. A supposed goodie, he seems to be quite happy to put everyone's life at risk in his quest for justice, but never reports back to his boss anything he learns. Despite seeing innocent people die, including some of his friends, he blithely witnesses for the murder of the head baddie (by the President, no less) and settles for a dose of the miracle treatment as the price of his silence. The plot leaves you unconvinced and with little sympathy for the protagonist..
Added to the fact that the book is split into two halves, the first half free, the second paid for - this smacks of slightly dubious practice.
I won't be purchasing any more of Mr Irvine's books. Don't get sucked in.
