George Guidall enhances every book he narrates, lending nuance and drama to even the most pedestrian prose. This is a workmanlike thriller that feeds effectively on one's natural fear of lying helpless in a hospital bed. But the story never really grabs you -- there's a kind of mechanical feel to it, as if the author were following a mystery cookbook recipe. Had anyone but Guidall narrated the book, I doubt I would have stuck it out to the end.
