Want to know when a book is going to be a good one and you will be on the ride of your life? When the story starts out with Dr. Matthew MacAulay and his staff held at gun point. They are told if their patient dies then they all die. Whoever the patient is must be a very important person for him to be receiving a face transplant. Matthew and his staff do get to live another day.
Before Matthew can fully comprehend what happened to him, he learns that his close friend and mentor has died. Matthew uncovers that his friend's death was not by natural causes. Also, his friend had found a way to do facial transplants where there was virtually no scarring. As if that person had been born with that face. You can imagine the type of people that would kill for this type of knowledge.
I liked this book. It was different from my normal routine of reading. I could not help but think of the movie, Face Off starring Nicholas Cage and John Travolta. If they had this type of technology and could really adapt to the other one's personality better then it would have been even harder to have figured out which was which. This book would make a good movie. There was plenty of things happening in the book to keep it intriguing and moving at a good pace.
