From the moment I cracked open this novel, my intense journey began. Dr. Parry jam packed this medical/suspense thriller with so many vivid details and countless twists and turns that I felt I was on an emotional roller coaster ride as I turned each page. His character and storyline development were phenomenal and beyond any story I have ever read before. Having his extensive medical training surly enhanced this medical thriller to the level that it was. I was pulled into the characters’ lives and felt that I knew each one personally. I went through their daily highs and lows as if I was the one going through that particular situation they might have been in at the moment. As first, I was not sure I was going to be able to follow along considering this novel is based heavily on molecular and cellular biology, but Dr. Parry did an amazing job describing the terminology used so any non-medically trained individual would not have a problem understanding and following along as they became more engrossed into his storyline. I honestly cannot say enough good things about this book. I highly recommend this novel and I am eagerly hoping that Dr. Parry is penning his next novel as I write this review. Please keep writing more stories for your fans to enjoy, Dr. Parry!
