Untangling the Black Web by T.F. Jacobs

For me, the power of this book lies in the very plausible events it's describing.

The whole conspiracy (despite based only on anecdotal pieces of evidence of single people/companies wrongdoings) might be happening all around us, and we'd have little power to uncover or fight it.

We all know how bad our healthcare systems are - both in countries where they are private as well as in places where they are government run. There is probably no single solution to limit waste and provide fair incentives at all levels to simply keep people in good health. Instead, systems we create often lead to corruption and abuse. This leads to various malfunctions - leaving patients without a proper care at best, but often having much worse, even fatal, implications.

I liked the story a lot. It was very believable with lots of suspenseful moments and unexpected twists in action. Only the scene in the whip's office was maybe a bit too surreal for me - I had to put the book away for a while to calm down my nerves (thinking "this can't be happening" :).

You can get this book from Amazon:*

I received this book for free, as I voted for its publication in the Amazon's Kindle Scout program.
