Our main character Dr. Scott James, a plastic surgeon, finds out after a minor surgery on his secretary that murder is afoot and not just one. The police and his wife believe he is the murderer as he was the only one there. He hides and searches for answers on who is framing him. Through this hunt he is going to find out what is going on and that terrorism ties into it all.
I do not read thrillers often. That being said, this one did keep me interested for a while. I did like the thought of the main character Dr. Scott James falling for Elizabeth especially after his wife immediately believe the worse in her husband once second after hearing about it. What A B.I.T.C.H.! It is funny but even though she was a background character I think I hated the wife the most.
The thought that everyone was blaming the doctor for every murder that kept happening seemed far fetched. The police barely did any investigating once they got to the seen and then would start barking at Dr. James that he did it. I had to go back and reread chapters because sometimes I did not realize I was reading another person or what they had to do with the story I was already processing.
Sometimes the book was too over the place other time there was just enough thrill to keep me reading. Would I read another from this series? My answer would be maybe. It was not bad it was not great. It was just a typical thriller.
