Unlike most of Dr. Robin Cook's medical thrillers during the last 40 years Charlatan deals with medical education and medical ethics in the age of the Internet and social media. The plot is fascinating. George Guidall's narration always makes a novel even better.
I purchased Charlatan 5 days after it was published and after just listening to it I regret not listening to it sooner.

I work as an RN, CNOR, in short operating room nurse. This book captures an accurate snapshot of life in the medical field. Things can go terribly wrong in a heartbeat and there is a whole cascade of incidents that lead up to it. You can give 110% and things still go wrong. (As health care workers we are always trying to fix that).
But the real story is the social engineering that is going on in everyone's lives.
It has taken away the human elements of connection and experience. The book acknowledges that the mind cage of " cyber" life is real. To me that thought is horrifying. Worth your time $ or credit. It does get you to think. Which is the purpose of good books.
