The ever-popular and prolific Cook (Fatal Cure, Audio Reviews, LJ 9/15/94) sets his latest medical thriller in Equatorial Guinea, Africa. Dr. Kevin Marshall worries that he has traded his ethics for a gleaming futuristic lab. Meanwhile, stateside, Dr. Jack Stapleton, a forensic pathologist, is deeply troubled by an unidentified body that is missing various parts. Jack and his colleague, Laurie, identify the corpse as that of a Mafia kingpin, and their investigation leads them to Africa. Narrator Boyd Gaines is superb. The producer, however, would do well to abandon the tiresome and distracting sound effects that serve only to lend an old-time radio feel to the production. Missing are end-of-side cues prompting listeners to flip or change tapes. For popular fiction collections.?Terrill Persky, Naperville, Ill.
