    1. A definite page turner, the author has managed to keep readers hooked. Full marks to him for keeping the readers engrossed. Not too much medical jargons used like Robin Cook does and the language is easier to understand by laymen unlike some of the terms used in Cook's book. Would definitely pick up another Palmer given the opportunity


    2. 3rd medical thriller has: love, deceit, rivalry, corruption!We're reading Michael Palmer's medical thrillers in order, having thoroughly enjoyed his earlier "Sisterhood" & "Side Effects". As before, most of the story revolves around a hospital, this one, Sterling New Hampshire's Ultramed, part of a big business conglomerate. The successful administrator is Frank Iverson, son of the town's patriarch, Judge Clayton Iverson. When younger brother Zack finally finishes all his training in neurosu [...]


    3. Very interesting story! It reminded me of the show that featured people who woke up during their surgeries. These people was conscience while the surgen was operating on them. This novel is a scary thing that doctors can do to people to knock them out for before surgery. Very scary



    4. This was my first Michael Palmer medical suspense novel and I must say, although it was somewhat predictable, I enjoyed it. Not too much medical jargon, just enough to explain what was going on, characters I could relate to (the good guys, anyway). Being one of five children, I could also relate to the sibling rivalry, although in my family that ended when we matured into teenagers. Zack and Frank are two brothers who have a very strong-willed father, The Judge. Frank is the administrator of a c [...]


    5. The nice thing about reading a medical thriller written by an MD is accuracy in detail! Dr. Palmer writes a very interesting book about an MD who returns to his small hometown to practice at a local hospital run by his brother. As always, Dr. Palmer grabs the reader in the first chapter by outlining the issue via a character's personal experience. In this case it is a young child named Toby who is undergoing a hernia operation. He is supposed to be under during the surgery but something is wrong [...]


    6. Another masterpiece by Micheal Palmer I have always been a fan of medical thrillers And though Robin Cook is more famous for this genre I find Micheal Palmers books more varied. Each story is different and you get pulled into the story Makes it tough to put down one of these books until you have read it completely.This story revolves around Zach who has just moved back to his hometown and joined the hospital managed by his older brother. All seems bright and shiny at the hospital until he starts [...]


    7. This is a decent medical thriller, but for me was memorable for personal reasons.I read this the summer I had to have a minor bit of surgery. I won't give the book away, but the plot revolves around a new anaesthesia that has certain effects. After my surgery my recovery from anaesthesia was similar to the positive aspects described in the book - which obviously freaked me out.Happily I didn't get the negative effects. The positive effects were only due to how little anaesthesia I was given, not [...]


    8. This was one of the best medical mystery books I have read. I was completely connected to each character, so much so that I could feel their pain as I continued reading. I highly recommend this book to anyone! Although, I do not suggest reading this before any upcoming surgeries.


    9. The BOOK was wonderful, but the Kindle edition is full of typos and I'm not super happy about paying $6 for bad publishing. :( I took a course in ebook formatting and I do know it is not that hard to be typo free.


    10. In 'Flashback', eight-year-old Toby underwent a routine hernia operation only to experience terrifying flashbacks months later. As Zach Iverson moves back to his hometown to work at Ultramed-Davis Regional Hospital headed by his brother Frank, he is assigned to figure out what's wrong with Toby. During his investigation, he realizes that Toby must have been awake during the operation despite being injected with anesthetics. Can Zach get to the bottom of the mystery before it's too late?From the [...]


    11. What a great read!Palmer is a new author for me and I've read two of his books in just 3 days. (I am going to go broke at this rate.) Part thriller, part mystery this is a great story. The characters are alive. The subject matter is scary because it could be true.A page turner from beginning to end.


    12. This book follows the model of all of the authors other books that I have read. Again, there is something sinister happening in the medical community and our hero, Zach Iverson this time, arrives in time to save the day. I enjoyed this book more than the last two I read.


    13. Just ok for meHad a good premise but lots of useless details not essential to the story. Pages I skipped over and some parts very boring.


    14. A thriller. medical story to keep you on your toes.I chose my rating because to Me was exciting . Being a nurse I could imagine what this meant to the patients


    15. Great book. Very true of what COULD happen in a hospital, but thankfully doesn't. Makes you feel as though you are there.



    16. When it comes to medical dramas on television, I tend to prefer the ones where the medicine is more interesting than the people, choosing "House M. D." over my wife's favourite, "Grey's Anatomy". When it comes to reading, I find I have similar preferences, tending towards thriller or mystery style plots rather than my wife's chick-lit style novels, although I have been known to indulge in those from time to time. With these preferences, a medical thriller written by a former medical doctor was c [...]


    17. The tension was intense at times, and the one character, the father, who I felt was the most drawn out, the one that kept me on edge, technically was not the main one, although he did play a pivotal role. While not the nicest man, and his views in general are black and white, I felt I connected to him as he connected to nearly every character.As a whole, I enjoy Palmers's novels, but this time, I felt he relied too much on flashbacks of the family, mainly of the two children as they grew up. Som [...]


    18. Quite a very decent medical thriller, the characters are well carved & the chain of action keeps you attached to the book. will definitely look for more to read for Michael Palmer.


    19. This was one of the few Michael Palmer books I'd not read previously, and I found it good, but nothing spectacular. As with his other books, the characters are unique to this one, so Palmer does spend a lot of time on character development throughout the book. I find this both good and bad. On the plus side, it means you can pick up any book and not have to worry about a crucial plot twist that occurred in an earlier book and affects what you know about the character. On the downside, readers do [...]


    20. An excellent writing! Only problemI had to tear myself away from my reading!! Zach Iverson has just returned to Sterling (with Cheapdog) after being gone for medical school, internship, residency, and etc. Sterling is home - where his mother and father (the Judge), and his brother Frank and family live. So looking forward to getting back to the hills and country of northern New Hampshire, he finds himself questioning some of the goings on at the hospital where he's just been hired on as THE neur [...]


    21. I love all Michael Palmer books. I read a few when I was in middle school and now I want to read all he has.Zach Iverson has just moved back to his hometown of Sterling, NH, to work at Ultramed-Davis Regional Hospital, "Community and Corporate America working together for the Betterment of All." His brother, Frank, runs the hospital and his father, Judge, is head of the board. Zach is asked to consult on the case of a little boy, Toby, who has been having fits from some unknown trigger. He soon [...]


    22. In the tradition of Robin Cook (whose books I liked in these years) I also acquired a few of Michael Palmer's books. I did like them too, but because I got to the end of the Cook-series, the Palmer books didn't make as much impression as they might have done when read on their own. I'm not sure if I'm actually going to re-read this book, if I'll feel like it. If I do, I'll write a proper review, though.


    23. This is a fairly typical medical mystery but it had lots of twists. And like the kid on Sixth Sense said, a story needs twists. I'd give this an extra half star if I could.An eight-year-old boy remembers every detail of a routine surgery he had several months ago. Zack Iverson, neurosurgeon, tries to find the reason why and how to stop it before it the terrible memories kill the child.Recommended for: If you like Robin Cook you'll like Michael Palmer.


    24. I have enjoyed this author. He is a writer of mystery all based in the medical field. There is some language, and sometimes a quick love scene. Over all it is a fun fast mystery that keeps me guessing. This one was a little graphic in places. It is set on the premise that people are being operated on, and they can feel and hear everything, but they can't move. Gives you the creeps! I enjoyed it.


    25. A highly principled young neurosurgeon, an unscrupulous group of colleagues, a young boy dying slowly as he experiences terrifying flashbacks of his own routine surgery a gripping read and a challenging message. Just how far would I go to uphold my own ethical standards if it was a question of love ad loyalty over rules and systems?


    26. Incredibly predictable.Very disappointing. In this one Michael Palmer's characters are as predictable, and as dull, as characters in a Robin Cook novel. The outcome was predictable after just a few chapters, and the characters so dull the it wasn't worth reading any further to see if one or another of them would do or say something interesting or edifying.


    27. Thai was my first medical thriller, and I enjoyed it. Interesting characters, good plot, and of course I especially enjoyed the medical descriptions provided by the author. It was slow in some parts but overall I was engaged. Definitely left me nervous about going under he knife!


    28. It never fails that I love Michael Palmer's novels! This one held me in it's grip page after page. I'm glad the protagonist, Zachary, held his own against his evil sibling and even against his overbearing father. Loved it!
