Fear courses through the narrative, unhinging the characters. It leaks through the government, corrupts the body politic and infects the nation. It is fear, too, tinged with curiosity, that keeps the reader turning the pages. (White Death)
McClure writes the sort of medical thrillers which are just too close to plausibility for comfort. (The Eye of the Raven)
A plausible scientific thriller... McClure is a rival for Michael Crichton. Gripping. (The Gulf Conspiracy)
Peterborough Evening Telegraph
Contemporary and controverial, this is a white knuckle ride of a thriller. (Past Lives)
Well wrought, plausible and unnerving. (Tangled Web)
Ken McClure . . .looks set to join the A-list at the top of the medical thriller field
The Glasgow Herald
McClure's intelligence and familiarity with microbiology enables him to make accurate predictions. Using his knowledge, he is deciding what could happen, then showing how it might happen... It is McClure's creative interpretation of the material that makes his books so interesting.
Ken McClure explains contagious illness in everyday language that makes you hold your breath in case you catch them. His forte is to take an outside-chance medical possibility, decide on the worst possible outcome… and write a book.
Original in conception… its execution is brilliantly done… plot and sub plot are structured with skill… the whole thing grabs the attention as it hurtles to its terrifying climax (Requiem)
Independent Newspapers (Ireland)
Absolutely enthralling. (Crisis)
It is intensely factual and that is why the fiction he writes is so horrifying.
Manchester Evening News
Pacy thrillers from Scotland's own Michael Crichton.
