The Syndrome by John Case

Not his best by far.

Synopsis:

Adrienne Cope and Jeffrey Duran are drawn into a web of intrigue and recovered memories as they both look into the death of Adrienne's sister and Jeffrey's psychiatric patient, Nico. They discover an international conspiracy and the drama ensues.

My review:

This book was pretty boring for the first 168 pages - that's when stuff finally started to get moving - 1/3 of the way through the book. I'd have dropped it long before that except that I'd already read 'The Genesis Code' by this author and enjoyed it and was waiting for this one to improve. I really was disappointed.

I give this book 2 stars out of 5. I would have given it a slightly better score but I know the author can do much better than this.
