Although this book is a little dated simply because of the rapid medical progress in immuno-oncology, it is suspenseful & exciting. It adds a realistic dimension into the potential for unethical economic pressures to be imposed by the pharmaceutical industry on the medical profession. Robin Cook's portrayal of the inept bureaucracy of the EPA adds a degree of reality. It is certainly a good read.
I must admit to primarily being an action suspense fan. This book is suspenseful but perhaps a little too detailed for me. Some may like to know exactly how someone is dressed down to a hand-tied bow tie, but not me. There's a lot of medical detail which bored me a little. Although the protagonist was obnoxious, that was okay since it was the author's choice to make the guy like that. It did take awhile for things to really get interesting for me, but I like lot's of action. There were more personality studies in this book that I'm used to. The characters were all believable as was the story line. There wasn't any way-out fantasy stuff that defied credulity. I will probably read another Robin Cook book sometime when I need a break from the usual genre that I read.
This is a very interesting read and in fact some new technology related to this fiction work is actually being studied now. As you may know Robin Cook is an MD that became an author and his medical facts are spot on and very interesting as he weaves them into his works of fiction.
Another excellent book writen by Robin Cook. Reminder me of a brilliant oncologist I worked with. He took wonder care for his patient's and gave honest care and information to the patient and their families. Thank you for this enjoyable story.
