Greene chiede consiglio ad un avvocato dell'ospedale sul caso di una sua paziente incinta, deceduta per una sua errata diagnosi. Contrariamente a quanto vorrebbe l'avvocato, Greene insiste per portare il caso in giudizio e tentare di vincere in tribunale. Intanto un uomo che assomiglia in tutto e per tutto a Babbo Natale arriva al pronto soccorso con una ferita alla mano. (fonte: movieplayer.it)

Letto già tanti anni fa, appena uscito.
Dal punto di vista della tecnica, scientifico, ci si accorge che sono passati tanti anni, ma per il resto rimane un bel libro, pieno di tensione e patos

Abbandonato dopo diversi tentativi di portarlo alla fine. l'autore si dilunga troppo sui dettagli tecnici relativi al funzionamento del velivolo. Il lettore continuamente spera che la situazione si "sbrogli" e che qualche colpo di scena ravvivi un po' la situazione...invece pagine e pagine di noiosissime indagini....

il primo difetto di questo libro è il carattere di stampa: brutto, troppo marcato e di stile vecchio. Faticoso da leggere nella forma e nei contenuti
