Customer Review

on 2 August 2010
I bought this crime fiction after reading a review of it in the British Medical Journal where it received an unusual four star top rating. I was not unhappy with my buy. It is an easy un-put-downable read with some medical aspects not too obvious to the layman of today.Since the early 1980s when the discovery that a bacteria was the cause of the majority of gastric and duodenal ulcers the incidence of acute bleeding in the gut has plumeted. Hand in hand the number of operations for ulcer surgery is now only a fraction of what it was. I remember as a medical student in the 60s assisting these operations that would head the list. I also remember treating patients with acute bleeds; those patients that lived and those that died. It is now another World and I often feel we do not appreciate the advances made.
Patients no longer spend more than a few days in hospital and the relationships that were once built up between patients-nusring staff-doctors have gone.
The above is just background to a good detective story. Well worth the read
