      GRIDLOCK germinated in a flight from San Francisco to Florida The isolation of that cross country trip with recycled jetliner air led to ruminations over my work in a New York hospital.While updating computer networks in Beth Israel Medical Center, I saw firsthand how biology and computers were converging Petri dishes and microscopes were being replaced with databases and computer workstations All quite ho hum.But no It was the dawn of personlized medicine And I hadn t heard a whisper about it Even fewer knew the human genome was being decoded.The advancement came like a tidal wave steadily reshaping everything in its wake Mainstream practices would soon become ancient history The digital revolution had wound its way to the doctor s office where it was transforming medicine and rewriting healthcaree same way it had disrupted the newspaper, music, book, and movie industries Landing in Fort Lauderdale, I pondered the new reality Customized treatments were replacing one size fits all drugs Scientists were unlocking the secrets of DNA to find our susceptibilities to disease so precision treatment could become the norm Since diseases like cancer were are as individual as a fingerprint, the breakthrough would extend the lives of hundreds of millions But modernization is never simple Healthcare is the biggest industry in the world with countless careers and fortunes hanging in the balance Surely there would be fierce detractors to this change But how far would opponents go to halt scientific progress

    • "Gridlock" which I won from Giveaways is a fast-paced, high-powered thriller that takes place when humanity's greatest discovery is revealed. With the genome project not only will the Grid, a vast computer network interpret a person's DNA quickly and efficiently, but it will provide the specific compounds to fight a disease individually at a cost that's affordable. As the story opens Jude Wagner's colleagues in the venture are being murdered in an attempt to shut down the medical revolution tha [...]


    • Jude Wagner, computer whiz, has helped develop the Grid, a computer program that can personalize low-cost medicine, based on individual human genomes. Now he is responsible for safeguarding the program.It certainly needs that, for the Grid has enemies, whether pharmaceutical corporations or religious fanatics. Someone is killing computer engineers, to keep the Grid from operating. Someone is attacking the Grid, itself. Jude partners with a sympathetic FBI agent, Nathalie Noiret, to stop the atta [...]


    • Not for everyone but I couldn't put it down.This is a plot-driven techno-thriller that is indeed intricate. There's a big cast and the story goes into some depth on genomic medicine and supercomputing. If you want to explore these topics with an FBI backdrop, then you'll probably enjoy this. The story builds, for sure, though the suspense isn't full throttle until the second half of the book. I'm one for twisty plots like this and I liked that the scientific revolution in the story came across a [...]


    • Very good. Well structured.Very good. Well structured.This is a book that you want to finish in one sitting. Genetics and modern medical science well portrayed.


    • This was a free book of the day at and I thought I had nothing to lose by getting it. I was actually quite surprised by how good it was and it's fast paced action kept me reading.


    • Very tight plot. Very topical. Personally, I'm interested in scientific thrillers and when they are well researched like this one all the better. I finished it in three days.


    • I love itI love itGood suspense read. Action and mind-blowing issues. Most books, I figure out before the climax. This had me puzzled, until the reveal.



    • Firstly, I won this book as part of a Giveaway. Thank you to all authors and readers who support this excellent scheme.'Gridlock' is very much a novel in the mould of science-cum-business thrillers such those by Paul McEuen or Michael Crichton. Jude Wagner has unlocked a discovery that can potentially change the nature of medicine - promising hope to millions with aggressive conditions such as cancer but potentially threatening big business interests. The cast is wide and well drawn, although i [...]


    • The author’s publisher, Loma Vista Press, gave me a copy of this novel in exchange for my review.Medical thrillers aren’t exactly my wheelhouse. An overload of scientific principles in a recipe for boredom, which is why “Gridlock” was the perfect medical thriller for this reader. Ziegler, who has a strong background in medicine and computer science, gives the reader all of the facts to be convincing but not so inscrutably as to weigh the story down. “Gridlock” is Ziegler’s first no [...]


    • Gridlock by Alvin Ziegler has the bones of a great thriller. It has a good premise, current in-the-news, true to life topic, and the potential to be a blockbuster medical thriller similar to the ones Robin Cook has writtenO, a book needs suspense, tension and excitement to qualify as a thriller. Gridlock has that on the surface. But the writing was more fact based than fiction, had short choppy sentences and did not flow. The dialogue read like a collection of platitudes: "Too much forward think [...]


    • This book was entertaining Not great, but not bad either. I am not a fan of the continuous format (no chapter breaks), but it was ok. There were a few grammatical or "wrong word" errors that a spell-checker wouldn't find, but an editor should. Also, the format was't that great for kindle. I had a lot of weird spacing going on But the technical aspects of the book made it good.


    • Couldn't put it downOnce I had all the characters straight & the farther I read, the harder it was to put down. Made me think, what if this Grid really worked? The possibilitesd conflictexactly like this! Keeps the mystery going until the end.


    • a little bit action/thriller clichéd but on the whole a good read. enjoyed the feeling of realism with the technical and scientific areas of the story which also managed to keep it simple enough for the layperson.



    • This was a really fun read. Fast paced and educational, with great plot twists that keep you guessing almost until the very end.
