Lovely review by Kate Saunders of Intuition in the Sunday Times (April 29, 2009).
Set in a cancer research lab in Boston – not particularly promising – this
tale is wonderfully written and as compulsive as Grisham. The co-directors
of the lab are Marion Mendelssohn, rigorous and pragmatic, and Sandy Glass,
a successful doctor ravenous for publicity. Their army of badly paid
scientists are under constant pressure to produce results, and there is
great excitement when Cliff Bannaker’s experiments with mice appear to
signal a breakthrough. But his girlfriend suspects that his findings are
fraudulent and, suddenly, all the seething jealousies in the building are
exposed. A riveting novel, uncomfortably relevant.
