Terrific page turner,
This review is from: Marker (Hardcover)
If you're a fan of medical mysteries, this is a must read. Robin Cook is on top of his game as he brings back the Pathology team of Jack Stapleton and Laurie Montgomery to solve the cases of mysterious deaths of apparently healthy patients (sound familiar, doesn't it). That's not to say Cook resurrects old material - sinister health insurance companies and medical procedures are a big part of this novel, but the author has the talent to breathe new life into old plot lines. The sub plots of Laurie's medical problems and the "bad guy" (one hell of a nasty nurse) are anything but distracting. Not wanting to spoil the ending for anyone, but chapter 24 has got to be one of the most exhilarating pages Cook has ever written. Perfect summer time entertainment.
