Maybe it's because I am female, maybe because I have a medical background but I was profoundly dissapointed with this book. The characters are predictable and cardboard, especially the female lead. Once again we are treated to a woman with a supposed higher intellect (a PhD)who has no common sense, and who behaves throughout most of the book like a bimbo. Sound familiar? Remember the character Laura Dern played in Jurassic Park?..ditto.
The medical scenerio was difficult to swallow, in that it was poorly contrived and not too well written. The former "Dr" Cook needs to stay away from this area as he has been out of the profession since the 1970's and it shows. The ending was laughable!
Don't waste your money here! There are many other writers in mystery and thrillers who are far better than this...

I was so disappointed with the ending in this book! It felt like Mr. Cook got tired of writing and just picked some kind of ending to get this project over with. I think this book had SO much potential and Mr. Cook didn't really take advantage of that. The whole aspect of using that particular blood sample had a lot more implications he could have used toward the end and with a better ending. I liked it until the end. I even gave it a good rating BEFORE I had finished the book. I have since changed my rating. I really wanted to like this book. I could have put up with the poorly developed female character with a better ending.
