UCLA medical student Jennifer Hernandez is in over her head in this thriller by bestselling medical writer Dr. Robin Cook. When Hernandez learns that her grandmother has died in India after traveling there for a cheap hip replacement, she’s crushed. She decides to investigate to learn exactly what happened, but when she unearths a massive conspiracy, she finds she may have dug too deep. Narrator George Guidall is a truly gifted performer with a knack for delivering complex prose, such as medical language, with ease. Guidall's commanding voice generates a strong sense of urgency and intrigue. Despite his strong performance, though, one wonders if a female narrator might have been better to portray a story with a female protagonist.
