Reviewed in Canada on March 31, 2013
I had trouble putting this one down. The central conceit--a patient with a mysterious illness turns out to be moving backward through the history of medical science--grabbed me from the get-go and didn't let up. The characters are skilfully drawn and even as the plot keeps moving the story forward, Glennie asks interesting questions of our understanding of our faith in science. Highly recommended.
