Summary

Doctor Felix Hoffmann is a seasoned physician at a Berlin hospital, respected by colleagues and devoted to his intelligent girlfriend, Celine. It’s a life filled with medical work, televised soccer games, and the chill of German beer. And when a former patient shows up dead by causes unknown, curiosity and sheer medical devotion propel Hoffmann to investigate. But his autopsy order goes unfulfilled as the body is cremated and hospital records vanish. Soon, Hoffmann discovers a diagnosis of conspiratorial proportions, and he must risk everything to save not only himself but the hospital he’s always loved.

Hospital Drama & Connections

This was one of my earlier free picks with Amazon first Reads. It’s been on my kindle for some time. Well it started off like a normal busy day in the life of a hospital Doctor Dr Hoffman, until a previously treated patient
ends up dead. Intrigued by this Dr Hoffman tries to find out the cause. He faces lots of blocks and when confiding this to his mathematician girlfriend Celine a lover of solving puzzles she finds this peaks her interest. Then when a senior member of the hospital is found dead, things start getting tricky.

Throw in illegal ways of funding the hospital, more danger and cover ups, will Dr Hoffman and Celine ever get to the bottom of this......

This is not my usual favourite genre but it was very fascinating

Gem of a Thriller

I was blown over by the quality of the writing, and the delivery by Michael Page. This is a quirky thriller read in a personal way that draws the listener into the story from beginning to end.
Highly recommended.

Bit of an anticlimax really.

I was expecting more after reading the reviews of this book. I wouldn't say it's not worth a listen but there's better out there.
