Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The explosive new thriller from New York Times–bestselling author and master of the medical thriller, Robin Cook, takes readers back to where the genre began, with Coma: what happens when innocent hospital patients are used as medical “incubators” against their will.

 

 

Lynn Pierce, a fourth-year medical student at Mason Dixon University, thinks she has her life figured out. But when her otherwise healthy boyfriend, Carl, enters the hospital for routine surgery, she doesnt know its the last time she will see him whole again. 

 

Devastated by Carls death, Lynn searches for answers. Convinced theres more to the story than what the authorities are willing to reveal, Lynn uses all her resources at Mason Dixon—including her initially reluctant lab partner, Edward—to hunt down evidence of medical error or malpractice.

 

What she uncovers, however, is far more disturbing. Hospitals associated with Sentinel Healthcare, including the one attached to Mason Dixon, have unnervingly high rates of unexplained anesthetic complications and patients contracting serious and terminal illness in the wake of routine surgery.

 

When Lynn and Edward begin to receive death threats, they know theyre into something bigger than either of them anticipated. They soon enter a desperate race against time for answers before shadowy forces behind Sentinel Healthcare can put a stop to their efforts once and for all. 

Synopsis:

With her son's illness in complete remission, New York City medical examiner Laurie Montgomery returns to work-and finds her first case back to be a dangerous puzzle of the highest order, involving organized crime and two start- up biotech companies caught in a zero-sum game...

I liked this book as much as all the books by Robin Cook. It's a part of the series involving Laurie Montgomery and her husband Jack Stapleton, both Medical Examiners. The book was intense and moving; the only negative being that Montgomery plays too big a role.

The story as always talks waxes eloquent with even 'family' members like Louie saying "in this business sometimes you need to use violence to keep the peace." Laurie as always, bemoans the marriage of medicine and business.
