If you could sum up Cry of the Needle in three words, what would they be?

A must listen

What other book might you compare Cry of the Needle to, and why?

This was my first medical thriller but I have read Radford's other books and enjoyed every one of them.

Which character – as performed by Nigel Patterson – was your favourite?

Kieran Kelly

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Yes and it made me cry for all who suffer from unnecessary invasive spinal procedures

Any additional comments?

Reminded me of my own case against an uncaring physician. I ran the whole gamut of emotions as the main protagonist, Kieran Kelly, sought his revenge against those who caused harm to his wife and others. In the course of this story, superbly narrated by Nigel Patterson, Radford raises issues that the medical profession and pharmaceutical companies would prefer to sweep under the carpet.
