From Publishers Weekly:

Taut and fast-paced, this medical thriller is the second collaboration between former Los Angeles County chief medical examiner and a veteran suspense novelist. Featured again are former L.A. County coroner Dr. Eric Parker and Mike Steenbargen, colleagues in their forensic investigations firm. Attractive, exasperating Leah Wechsler has retained them to find enough evidence to compel an autopsy of her mother, who has died, presumably of pneumonia, at Havenhurst nursing home and been posthumously decapitated. Her head has been frozen for future revival by Freeze Time; the rest of her remains are slated for cremation in 48 hours. After a nurse who attended Mrs. Wechsler is found dead, Parker becomes a target for murder as he uncovers a trail leading from the nursing home to Freeze Time. At the same time Parker must deal with the ethics of testifying as expert witness for an accused serial murderer and with his responsibilities as a divorced parent of a young son. A high-energy tale, replete with authentic medical detail. Troll Book Club selection.

From School Library Journal:

YA --As head of forensic investigations, Dr. Eric Parker, former L. A. county coroner, is called upon to determine why so many residents of the Havenhurst Nursing Home have paid to be frozen upon death with a company called Freeze Time. Parker's investigations and a pathology class he teaches are described with complete pathological details, including all the gory touches readers love to squeal about. This medical thriller outdistances those by Robin Cook in its attention to both legal procedures and medical techniques, yet never loses its fast pace and ability to hold readers' interest. --Pam Spencer, Jefferson Sci-Tech, Alexandria, VA
