While the man himself seems to be unlucky in love and romance, he has a good heart and will do anything to protect his society from any medical and scientific threats. The Dr. The novels start at a good clip and pack some interesting characters, though the pace does slow down a little bit at times. The series of novels are best compared to Agatha Christie adventures even as the novels are more contemporary with the characters using modern appliances such as mobile phones. Nonetheless, most of the characters in the series are likable with the lead and several other characters that he encounters having that dry wit that makes it almost impossible to not laugh out loud.
In many ways, the novels move away from contemporary thriller writing tradition by refusing to get graphic for the sake of it, even though there are several instances of grisly sequences. The first third of the Dr. Steven Dunbar series is often a description of a crisis that becomes a nightmare. Things then calm down to fool the reader and even Dunbar the lead into thinking the crisis is over. McClure then uses the following third to deal with some development or situation that is in some way unconnected to the original developments seeming like a subplot that turns out to be central to the entire arc of the original story.
The novels will then use the last third in making deductions and realizations, as the different subplots converge into one as the lead character doctor Steven Dunbar races against time trying to outdo the bad guys and stop and catch them if he can.

Sort order. Another great Steven Dunbar title from Ken McClure, fast paced and keeps you hooked right to the end. Jul 21, Brian Deegan rated it really liked it Shelves: cheap-books. Worryingly believable!
As with all the other Ken McClure books in the Stephen Dunbar series, I found this one to be very worryingly believable and even more so because Ken himself normally supplies links to documents that give his sources for the information contained in his novels. That is not to say that his stories are based on fact but they are certainly very good at showing us what could feasibly happen at some point in the future and since this book was written quite some time ago I would i Worryingly believable!
That is not to say that his stories are based on fact but they are certainly very good at showing us what could feasibly happen at some point in the future and since this book was written quite some time ago I would imagine that we are even closer to such situations now than we were then. Ken is a brilliant story teller and in Dr Stephen Dunbar he has created a hero who is prepared to put himself at risk in order to get to the truth in a Sci-Med investigation. Unfortunately, this also means that he tends to put others around him at risk which means that very often he finds relationships extremely difficult.
This story is no different and we are left at the end wondering whether he has finally managed to overcome this problem or whether the start of the next in the series will find him alone once more. I always enjoy reading these novels as I find them fascinating and exciting, and having read this one in 2 days I conclude that they are very hard to put down.
