Publisher's Summary

After a tumultuous year in which her mentor is murdered and her estranged father comes back into her life, Pia Grazdani, the embattled medical student from Death Benefit, decides to take a year off from her medical studies and escape New York City. Intrigued by the promise of the burgeoning field of medical technology and the chance to clear her head, Pia takes a job at Nano, LLC, a lavishly funded, security-conscious nanotechnology insititute in the picturesque foothills of the Rockies. Nano, LLC is ahead of the curve in the competitive world of molecular manufacturing, including the construction of microbivores, tiny nano-robots with the ability to gobble up viruses and bacteria.
But the corporate campus is a place of secrets. She's warned by her boss not to investigate the other work being done at the gigantic facility, nor to ask questions about the source of the seemingly endless capital that funds the institute's research. And when Pia encounters a fellow employee on a corporate jogging path, suffering the effects of a seizure, she soon realizes she may have literally stumbled upon Nano LLC's human guinea pigs. Is the tech giant on the cusp of one of the biggest medical discoveries of the 21st century - a treatment option for millions - or have they already sold out to the highest bidder?

First time review

What would have made Nano better?

An ending.


What do you think your next listen will be?

Not sure. I have a few books that I've already purchased


Have you listened to any of George Guidall’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

George Guidall always does a great reading.


Any additional comments?

I should do more reviews. I just finished this book and I am angry. The ending is abrupt. No conclusion. I guess Robin Cook thinks he is writing a series so he thinks he can get away with this. Because of this ending, I may never read another Robin Cook novel, and I have liked him in the past. It is always obvious in a series that there will be more to the story, but there is some type on conclusion to the book. This one just stops. Period. In the middle of the action. I feel like I wasted my time. It's sad when a good author decides to short change his/her readers to make another buck. That's what I feel like here.

This better be part 1

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

11 hours of listening only to have absolutely nothing resolved and see the ending fall flat on its face. Even if there is a sequel, not enough here to spend time listening. I have never asked for my money back, but I am now. Don't waste your money on this one.


What was most disappointing about Robin Cook’s story?

He forgot to make one.
