Publisher's Summary

The New York Times-bestselling author and master of the medical thriller returns with another heart-pounding story of medical intrigue.
With her young son's potentially fatal neuroblastoma in complete remission, New York City medical examiner Laurie Montgomery returns to work, only to face the case of her career. The investigation into the death of CIA agent Kevin Markham is a professional challenge-and has Laurie's colleagues wondering if she still has what it takes after so much time away.
Markham's autopsy results are inconclusive, and though it appears he's been poisoned, toxicology fails to corroborate Laurie's suspicions. While her coworkers doubt her assassination theory, her determination wins over her husband, fellow medical examiner Jack Stapleton, and together they discover associations to a large pharmaceutical company and several biomedical start-ups dealing with stem-cell research. Laurie and Jack race to connect the dots before they are consumed in a dangerous game of biotech espionage.

A repetitive waste of time

This book si so poorly written, I can't finish it. It is overly repetitive and redundance 9I know, I know). The characters are poorly drawn. Details are either missing or so obvious that you want to yell, "Duh!" The naarration is monotone and with little variation between characters.

Not like the other Robin Cook Books

While this story was entertaining enough to finish, I was very disappointed. I typically enjoy Robin Cook's blend of medical technology and suspense. Unfortunately this book was not like the others. It seemed to have taken a departure from the formula that I believe has worked so well in the past and transformed itself into a fair suspense novel with much more focus it seemed on organized crime than on the medial tech I have grown so much to appreciate. It was entertaining, as I said before, but having read all previous books to date, the most disappointing as well.
