Cold Steel Book Review Summary

Detailed Plot Synopsis of Cold Steel

Carson combines a medical thriller with politics, drugs and murder. The death of a prominant American surgeon's daughter in Dublin leads to an investigation that reveals wrongdoings of high medical personnel in cohorts with politicians. Drug use is explored as a sub-plot and the deranged drug dealer's therapy is quite pitiful. This is a good read, action packed and keeps moving with mini-plots abound. I have been keeping a look out for Paul Carson's other novel "Scapel" as a result.
