When a routine polyp removal ends with the patient exploding, reporter (and novelist) Owen Berk is called upon to investigate.
The actual medical case was really interesting and seemed well researched. Even though this is a fictional work I wanted to read this as a case study and find out the science and explanation behind the explosion. Beyond that, I had trouble getting into it. The rest seemed to have a lot of off-topic filler material. I've read several works that feature a book within a book and usually enjoy it. But the main character's "novel" inserted here didn't really add anything to it for me. I wish the author had written more of the medical/science/case study aspect of the plot. That's what really attracted me to this in the first place.
