Description

New York City medical examiners Laurie Montgomery and Jack Stapleton return in this stunning new novel from the ?master of the medical thriller? (New York Times)?a ripped-from-the-headlines tale of an innovative doctor?s dangerous downward spiral.

From the Paperback edition.

From Publishers Weekly

Jun 11, 2007 – Last seen in 2006's Crisis, New York City medical examiner Laurie Montgomery diligently investigates an abrupt rise in infection deaths at the start of bestseller Cook's lively new thriller. All the deaths can be traced to three Manhattan hospitals owned by Angels Healthcare. Unbeknownst to Montgomery, Angels, which specializes in high-profit surgeries of amply insured patients, is on the verge of going public and can't risk any bad publicity. She's also unaware that Angels' main financial backer is a local Mafia don, who's prepared to kill anyone standing in the way of his investment. Cook smoothly juggles several subplots one involving Montgomery's husband and fellow coroner, Jack Stapleton, who's suffered a serious knee injury playing basketball and ekes out maximum value from one of his regular standbys, bumbling hoods. It all adds up to an entertaining mix of suspense, action and education about medical issues.

Customer Reviews

Awesome

Dr Robin Cook is always ahead of the medical headlines (MRSA) and having worked at Bellevue Hospital I can appreciate the attention to detail , it is like being transported to First Ave. He provided just enough medical information to motivate me to research more on the subject , while spinning a great murder yarn .

Critical Read

As always, Robin Cook does a great job to reel you in. In keeping with this style, Critical grabbed my attention from the first chapter.
The ending is always important and in particular, this case, was not that great.
