Publisher's Summary

Someone is stalking the UCLA Medical Center - a depraved madman who is preying upon the staff, particularly those who are young and female. No stranger to the terrible ravages of senseless violence, E.R. Chief Dr. David Spier must keep the emergency room running smoothly and efficiently, even as his terrified co-workers wonder who will be the next victim. But when the monster himself is dragged into the E.R. in handcuffs - hideously burned, suffering, and begging for mercy - the nightmare is far from over...it has only just begun. A single act of humanity is about to unleash a bloody wave of horror that threatens to engulf everyone and everything Dr. Spier cares about. His most sacred oath as a healer has become a death sentence - for David Spier...and for a city under siege.

What happened Hurwitz??

I was a huge fan of Greg Hurwitz’s books and couldn’t wait to listen to his new book.

What a disappointment! It is predictable and cheesy. The characters are lame as is the story line. Felt like someone else wrote it.

Too Much Story

I tried to like this story but the author took so much time with details that I didn't feel suspense, I just felt angry and was hoping whatever was going on would be over soon. I've read other books by this author and enjoyed them, this one, I'm sorry to say was downright painful to finish. Also, while chasing the bad guy everyone responsible was acting ridiculous, the story could have been so much better. 😒 Feel like it was a wasted credit - but I was so far in I felt like I needed to finish - so glad it's over.

Can a good doctor be this stupid?

No person let alone a very smart doctor be this stupid. Also even the LA police cannot be this bad. This book would be 1/4th the size if the people described were not idiots. Not very good, a waste of time since I listened until the end. Stupid me!

Disappointing...terrible...ridiculous

I am a big Gregg Hurwitz fan but this is a terrible story. Great narrator but it is difficult for him because of the ridiculous plot. He tries to make the 'medical' aspects as accurate as possible and then he throws such a ridiculous plot. Completely disappointing.

Skip it

Hokey, especially for Hurwitz. Disappointing. Sappy and unbelievable. I expect more from this usually good author.

Meh!

Not up to Hurwitz' usual standards. The doctor is a jerk and is as off base as the police and the bad dude! The first 20 or 23 chapters draw you in but after that it is me screaming at the book "Enough Doc! Give it a rest!"

S M H 🙄

First the positive. The narrator did a great job! The story was disappointing. Some of the characters were very likable. But the way it was written it was missing something. There a were times, several that had me on the edge of my seat, but then fizzled out. I had to force myself to stick it out hoping it would get better.

Okay plot; great narration!

I was disappointed to learn this novel was published during the year 2002 and the audio version was released 16 years later. The plot is not up to Hurwitz's current standards. Scott Brick's narration is outstanding.

I look forward to the release of Book 4 of Hurwitz's Orphan X/Evan Smoak series on January 29, 2019.

Mixed Emotions...

First off, I found the "hero", Dr. David Spier, to be moronic. A good way to describe Spier would be to say he is One-Dimensional. I never grew to like him, at all. And he his on just about every page here. I know the tricks of authors: make you hate the hero, then rehabilitate him or her for the reader/listener. That trick failed for me here. I hated Dave Spier from the start and all the way through the book. I hated one of the cops investigating the criminal--at first. But in this case, the trick worked--I ended up liking the cop. I had no sympathy for the criminal, but his character was finely draw, in all his complexities. At least his character was truer to what he was than that moron, Spier. It's a good book, so definitely worth a listen, especially with Scott Brick at the helm. The man never disappoints. Just know Spier is stupid.

Great narrator, lousy book

Implausible story of an annoyingly self-righteous ER MD who steps out of his role to act like a cop, a psychiatrist and a social worker to help a monster who throws lye at nurses. Full of tedious details that drag down the action. At mid way point I just went to the last chapter. It still took forever to get to the resolution. This was a complete waste of a credit. Brick was excellent as a narrator however.
