Another early Crichton, published under a pseudonym, now reissued by Hard Case under his name. Again, there's an interesting crime thriller in here somewhere, but Crichton piles on this bizarre conspiracy on top of it, and the twists and turns ultimately take away from the story. You can see how Crichton's medical background informs this one, as there is a lot of talk about drug trials and that sort of thing. It's also interesting because of it's take on Big Pharma, making it somewhat relevant today. Again, an enjoyable quick read, better than some of his later stuff.

I won this book through Goodreads. It was a very fast book to read I had it finished in just a matter of hours. The sci-fi part of the book is not something I would normally read but I did enjoy reading this book.
