I was given the opportunity to review this book honestly before it was released.
Nicholas Nash seems to have done a lot of research on this book. He knows more about cancer than I know about anything in the health world. With that being said, I actually learned a lot about cancer and understand it a little more than I did starting out.
Nash did not just through facts at you though, that’s what I loved. He actually explained things so when they are brought up again, you know exactly what he is talking about.
So, Rebecca is the girl that everyone stops and stares at.
She has the smarts, the looks and the personality to make just about anyone fall in love with her.
So when she disappears after a one-night stand with Ragnar and before her big speech about recent discoveries in the cure for cancer, people start to get frantic and worried about their beloved scientist.
So lots of people are pointing fingers at each other.
Could it be Ragnar, the one night stand and tradesman down on his luck? How about Nancy or Christy, the envious colleagues and jealous coworkers? How about her boss, Julia, who may want all the glory herself? Or the competition, Dr. Gupta, who Rebecca countlessly refused? There are so much people who could have a reason to hate her; but do they have a reason to hurt her? Or kill her?
Nash spent a lot of time putting history behind each person. I felt as if I knew more about them than I really felt necessary, but I love a good backstory as long as it is needed.
This is definitely and adult book. Can get a little graphic sexually and with murder scenes (lots of people do not make it to the end of the book). I thought it was a great read though and would recommend it to anyone who loves a good crime mystery.
