Description

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...

From Publishers Weekly

Jun 28, 2010 – Organized crime, international espionage, and kidnapping only mildly enliven Cook's methodical ninth medical thriller featuring husband-and-wife medical examiners Laurie Montgomery and Jack Stapleton (after Intervention). Laurie's first case back in the Manhattan medical examiner's office, after giving birth to the couple's firstborn, John "JJ" Junior, appears to be a routine case of death by natural causes. But Laurie suspects otherwise, and her dogged investigation uncovers a diabolical poisoning and a plot involving the Mafia and rival Japanese gangsters laundering money for a shady start-up firm promoting stem-cell research. To deter Laurie's prying, the thugs snatch JJ, and suddenly the intrigue gets very personal. Cook provides an interesting study of the strange bedfellows that the biotech business and the mob might make, but he telegraphs all his plot twists so far in advance that there's little suspense other than how quickly Laurie will tip to them. Even devoted Cook fans may find that the crimes and subterfuges are resolved too swiftly and perfunctorily.

What a great book!

This makes great reading at any time of year but the next time I pick it up will be in the autumn with a fire roaring and scotch on ice.

Another Winner

I'm a big fan of Robin Cook and of this series and was not disappointed in this one, it is a great read and will keep you wanting to not stop until the end. If you enjoy Robin Cook then buy this book.

A page turner!

Robin Cook at his finest. Fast paced, dramatic and intriguing, I couldn't put this book down. Dr Cook revisits some old characters which makes it easier to identify with them quickly. One of the scary things is that a lot of the story, although fictional, is also very possible, if not already fact. I would highly recommend this book. If you are a fan of Robin Cook, you will not be disappointed.
