Praise
"...an absolutely fascinating story...I do not think anyone can beat the suspense and the story line developed throughout this novel."
"...an escalating cycle of terrifying events that keep the action moving...a gripping,scarifying novel."
"[Coma] strikes to the core of many people's queasiness about the current debate as to when death occurs...By and large this is a horror story of the first order...a splendid read."
