Comments Deep Water

  • Miriam Smith

    I won this book in the Giveaways quite some time ago and would firstly like to apologise to the Giveaway host for my delayed review.I haven't read many dedicated medical thrillers - the main one being Tim Adler's 'Slow Bleed' - and since this isn't a genre I would normally read I wasn't sure what to expect.However, I was more than pleasantly surprised when I started reading "Deep Water" as I was immediately hooked by the compelling storyline and especially the opening prologue of a clinical tri [...]

  • Rachel Hall

    Despite being a thriller, Deep Water is not a novel that I would have normally gravitated to given the scientific and medical emphasis which is a little out of my comfort zone. However, author Christine Poulson has written an incisive novel with an exhilarating denouement and overlaid it with an appreciation for the ethics and individuals engaged in the business of drug development, meaning Deep Water is concerned with more than simply spills and thrills. Not only is the premise utterly original [...]


  • Susan

    This scientific thriller begins with a clinical trial for a cure for obesity, during which a medical student dies. Two years later and the company that is funding the research, Calliope Biotech, is under pressure. A US company are challenging to patent the antibody used in the research and lawyer, Daniel Marchmont is asked to try to prove that Honor Masterman, principal scientific investigator, made the discovery. By coincidence, Daniel’s ex-wife was working on the case, before being killed in [...]


  • Denise

    How far over the line would you go with millions at stake? Millions of lives, millions of dollarsVery tightly plotted scientific/medical thriller with a focus on the ethics of the laboratory scientist. The fast paced narrative also relates the degree of pressure that researchers are under to get new treatments and therapies to those who need them -- the patients, and to those who want them -- for profit.This suspenseful novel has a large cast of characters and quite a few parallel plots that the [...]

    A book that will make you think, and it could possibly happen, and probably has, the falsifying of results in the lab to push drugs through. The premise of a drug that will fight obesity, and what a wonderful drug that would be, no more dieting and exercise, not quite, but sure would be the magic pill, that is until someone dies. We are following a young lab technician and her quest to find a drug to help children born with rare genetic illness, and then we are in the lab with the people who are [...]

    I received a free copy of this book from NetGalley for review.This is an intriguing thriller with a medical and legal background. Daniel Marchmont is a patent lawyer. He and his wife Rachel have a personal interest in some current research as their small daughter Chloe has a dangerous genetic disorder. Daniel is presented with an ethical dilemma which will cause problems for him whatever decision he makes.Katie is involved in medical research and she is worried about what is happening in the lab [...]


  • Patricia Walker

    This is an exciting thriller that I would definitely recommend to anyone who likes a mystery to unravel. The pages turn quickly as you enter the world of scientific research and try to work out who it is that is sabotaging a lab where scientists are involved in multi million dollar projects fighting to stay viable and gain recognition for work in bringing life changing drugs into being. From page one the characters are there, perfectly formed and weaving the story around themselves to keep the r [...]

    There are many wonderful places in this novel titled "Deep Water" by Christine Poulson to discuss in a group or ponder alone. There is the terrible death of Jennifer in a car, a lost lab book and the competition of scientists working in labs. To what lengths will scientists go to prove that they are the first to discover or explore something in the human DNA? Then, there is the mystery of research and children's illnesses. For example, the need of Bone Marrow which opens the door to who should g [...]

    The world of pharmaceutical cures for disease is populated with brilliant people driven to successfully create Nobel Prize winning cures yet amid their world of glass beakers is the conscience shattering lure of the prize. We find that these driven people are still individuals with the hopes, loves, and desires of ordinary men and women.In a story that takes the reader into the meticulous research lab and the daily detailed work of trial and error that is involved in research, the author shows t [...]


  • Lisa Johnson

    Title: Deep WaterAuthor: Christine PoulsonPages: 256Year: 2017Publisher: Lion FictionMy rating 4 out of 5 stars.The author has written four other novels prior to her latest book though I haven’t read them. Deep Water takes place in the United Kingdom and therefore it might take readers a moment to understand the American equivalent. The story is one of suspense that crosses the scope of science, law, and ethics. There isn’t a strong theme of faith though it is implied by the actions of one c [...]


  • Dan

    This English medical and legal thriller deals with the discovery of a drug that could treat obesity. But there are two companies racing to be the first to have on the market. One company hires a lawyer to makes sure all the research is up to par. But one such research journal is missing when the original attorney is killed in a car accident. This story, although revolves around the research lab, it mainly deals with the lives of those involved. Little suspense and more drama as we learn of the i [...]


  • Cathy

    well the language was rather salty and did not appreciate it especially from what was supposed to be a Christian , clean read and no folks it was not clean at all and I did finish it but really do Christian writers write swear words and such ? sorry but if you write a Christian read I would expect there to be no cursing or any of the saltiness that this book had .


  • Wendy

    In the frighteningly realistic thriller “Deep Water” which I won through Giveaways Christine Poulson explores the billion-dollar world of pharmaceutical research where brilliant minds search for cures for diseases and success or failure can define a career. The story opens with a death in a clinical trial, only two years later to have the legal council protecting Calliope Biotech’s rights to a cure for obesity die in a car accident and her ex-husband Daniel Marchmont a patent lawyer take [...]

  • Cheryl

    Sadly, this is another book where looks can be deceiving. I thought from the book cover and the fact that I have read a few other books about clinical trials and experiments that this book would drawn me instantly. I admit that in the beginning it did. The story did stay interesting for a while about a third of the way in. After that, my interest was wavering but I was committed to this book. It was a slow tug to bring me back. I never truly got there. What I felt this book suffered from was a l [...]


  • Sue

    Meh-dical thriller.I know I’m swimming against the tide with Deep Water, as it were, but I have to say I found this a distinctly average read. It’s about Big Pharma’s race to come up with a cure for obesity, served up with a side order of a child with a rare genetic disorder. True, the medical research setting is unusual and the reader learns some interesting things along the way (mainly about the importance of keeping lab notebooks) but the writing is mundane, the characters wafer-thin an [...]

    We all want drugs to be made available that will cure the world of what is ailing us, even saving the life of someone we know. But just how does all those clinical trials really work? Are pharmaceutical companies really willing to risk whatever it takes to get their newest drugs to market? That is the latest premise behind Christine Poulson's medical thriller Deep Water. When a man dies based on the human testing portion of a new drug to target obesity in humans and offer something the world has [...]


  • Beckie Burnham

    When I signed up to review Deep Water by Christine Poulson, I’m not sure what I expected. I guess I thought this book would be a medical thriller with lots of action, but short on character development. I was very pleasantly surprised by the depth of characterization, the complexity of the plot, the ethical and moral themes, and the very good writing of this thinking man’s mystery. Deep Water is a gem, and I am hopeful Christine Poulson will have a long fiction career.Let’s first look at s [...]


  • Gayle Pace

    MY THOUGHTSNo one can benefit from a new treatment that has been discovered simply because there is a discrepancy on who actually discovered it. The treatment is for obesity. Finally a lawyer is brought in, but it's going to be hard to solve this since evidence is missing. Not only that but the first lawyer on the case was found dead.The author writes a thriller that will leave you with a foreboding feeling in yourself. The reader is not only giving you a thriller but this thriller has medical a [...]


  • Jill Stanish

    Christine Paulson's medical thriller, Deep Water, provides a glimpse into the highly competitive field of pharmaceutical research and development. The book opens to a clinical trial for a treatment for obesity. But something goes seriously wrong. Fast forward to a legal battle over the patent for the obesity treatment. While elsewhere in the lab, another researcher is trying desparately to find a treatment for rare genetic condition.Three main players share the stage of Paulson's novel:Katie, a [...]


  • Joan

    This is a British mystery of rather low intensity and suspense. The plot revolves around the discovery of a drug to treat obesity. Another company is challenging the discovery, saying they developed it first. David, a patent lawyer, is asked to defend the biotech company's claim. Adding to the plot is that David and his wife have a daughter with a blood disease and the biotech company is developing a possible cure. A mystery develops when events go wrong in the biotech lab and one of the lab jou [...]

    I received a free copy through Library Thing.---I think I was expecting something slightly different when I first read the back cover. I was leaning towards more of a slight science fiction thriller, it was more science fiction than anything else.The science part kind of lost me but it was interesting to read and see the author try to incorporate into the storyline.The story is told through Katie (the researcher), Dan (the patent lawyer) and Rachel (Dan's wife and board member that is interested [...]


  • Nicky

    Received this in exchange for an honest review, via Netgalley.I love medical thrillers, so was excited to read this one. And it did not let me down. It had great characters, plot-twists, and once I started it I couldn't put it down. The medical terminology was easy to understand and to follow, which makes the book more enjoyable to the average reader. I really enjoyed the moral questions that it posed, in relation to how far medical companies and their scientists should and are willing to go, in [...]


  • Carol

    This is a very interesting subject but I was disappointed when I started reading. I was under the impression this was clean, but I found out in the first few pages that this, in my opinion, is not - clean - clean does not go off swearing - and this sure does make no bones about it. There was a murder within the first three pages and the swearing began there and so it went and so did I - lol - but I am just letting you all know in case you were under that impression that it was clean too. I recei [...]


  • Joy

    This is a great medical thriller which is one of my favorite genres. This has everything you would want in a good reada great plot, interesting characters, and a look into the medical world and how far companies go to make money. Very well written, guaranteed to keep you reading into the night! I received a copy of this book free from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.


  • Alaina Maxam

    THIS BOOK DRAWS YOU IN FROM THE BEGINNING. I COULDN'T PUT IT DOWN UNTIL THE END. THIS IS ONE MYSTERY THAT HAS A LOT OF TWISTS AND TURNS


  • Gabor Hernadi

    Surprisingly good medical, 'lab' thriller where everything revolves around a missing lab book. A quick, easy-to-read pageturner with attention to the details.


  • O

    I received this book in a free giveaway. All views are my own.The blurb about the book was promising, topic focusing on research, and the author was a researcher (turned out she didn’t do anything related to pharma though, so there’s a long list of acknowledgements in the back!) so I thought it would be an interesting insight. And it was, partly.However, it feels like the book would have needed an extensive series of editing before being published. There are frequent repetitions that are who [...]
