John doesn't relish the prospect of being back on the treadmill, working within the NHS again, but when he is unwilling to accept his boss' "death from natural causes" diagnosis after autopsies on various bodies, his professional suspicions are piqued.
He goes to his old friend DI Beverley Wharton with his concerns. All paths seem to lead to Atopia, a private clinic for the treatment of allergies run by a Dr Adam Dreifus - whose wife has just been found dead...

I really enjoyed this book and will look for more by Keith McCarthy. The plot was interesting - but not so convoluted that one would get lost in the story - I liked the personalities involved, the plot was well constructed and well written.
The icing on the cake was Sean Barrett's reading, he has a lovely voice, gives his characters different voices, I think he is on of my favourite narrators.
The book is brilliantly written with Keith McCarthy's clever and often darkly funny turn of [hrase adding to the pleasure of a well place thriller. Sean Barrett's performance is superb, his ability to interpret the story and the characters is faultless.
Sean Barrett is always, in my opinion, superb.
With a Passion Put to Use - another complex thriller
These books have so much going on pathology, law & the police, as well as the twists & turns that keep you listening
Narration is brill as ever but not even the grist Sean Barrett gets a 5 star off me, I am mean with my scoring.
I have enjoyed many Keith McCarthy books and this one is also very good to listen too. The narration of Sean Barrett is very enjoyable
"Gold! Perfect narrator and superb story"
Conflict and more conflict.
A very realistic representation of working relationships, especially medical.
I love the seething undercurrent of suppressed rage - anyone who has worked in a speciality where rank doesn't essentially equate to skill can empathise (through gritted teeth!)
Fabulous. Looking into the rest of the series.
Sean Barrett is king of narrators.
"Not quite as gripping"
But still a great book from Kieth. Sean Barrett as always narrates this book well.
Kieths books should be listened to in sequence so that you don't hear what happenned in a previous book that you haven't listened to yet. Google to find out when each book was released.
