About the book

Dr. Lauren Crawford is a brilliant research scientist who discovers a revolutionary treatment for cancer that not only extends life, but much improves the quality of life for terminal cancer patients. The treatment, in some instances, can even cure certain cancers. On the evening before Dr. Crawford holds a press conference to announce that the FDA has given preliminary approval of her new cancer treatment, somebody follows her to her car and puts three bullets in her head. Was it a planned murder with a motive, a mugging gone badly, or merely a random act of violence?


Two New York City homicide detectives, Amaris Dupree and T.J. Brown, are assigned to the investigation. The detectives evaluate the circumstances surrounding Dr. Crawford’s death, and follow a trail of clues that exposes a sequence of startling facts. One by one, the detectives carefully examine each suspect and piece together a puzzle with unimaginable implications. As the investigation gets more intense, and the detectives get closer to solving the murder mystery, someone threatens Dupree’s life. The detectives now realize that Dr. Crawford’s murder was much more than a homicide. And if they don’t arrest the murderer soon, Dupree might be the next victim.

About the author

His second book Resuscitation (Thomas & Mercer 2011), a follow-up to his first novel, hit #1 in Kindle sales in both the USA and UK. He is also the author of I Do Solemnly Swear (Thomas & Mercer 2012).Hypocrisy, is Annechino’s fourth novel.

My Review

In this book the author uses his medical knowledge to best effect as the background to a murder. The plot is interesting as Dr Lauren Crawford is murdered just as she has discovered a potential cure for cancer. With the big drug companies about to lose money if this radical treatment goes public, this book is partly a thriller, partly political and partly a cop story.

I especially liked the relationship between the investigators, Dupree and T.J. The rapport between the pair is second to none and it is in this area that the author excels. Each of them has their own secrets and worries about what they bring with them. I enjoyed watching the relationship develop and the repartee blossom. Readers will easily identify with them and enjoy the banter as light relief from the rest of the story.

This book will appeal to anyone who enjoys a good story with realistic characters.
