Description

In this chilling new novel from the one and only Robin Cook, New York City medical examiners Laurie Montgomery and Jack Stapleton rush to India to help a UCLA student investigating medical tourism-and a sinister global conspiracy.

From the Paperback edition.

From Publishers Weekly

Jun 30, 2008 – Bestseller Cook (Critical) stumbles in this formulaic thriller about the timely subject of medical tourism, the trend in which U.S. citizens seek to save costs on expensive surgery through treatment overseas. At the center of the drama is Jennifer Hernandez, a fourth-year medical student at UCLA, whose grandmother has died in a New Delhi hospital following hip replacement surgery. Suspicious about the circumstances, Hernandez immediately flies to India to investigate. There she not only discovers a number of similar deaths of U.S. citizens but also runs into the one-two punch of a desperate Indian medical industry struggling to block all publicity about the deaths and a huge American HMO that wants nothing more than the widest exposure of the apparent medical missteps in the Third World. Implausible plot twists, unconvincing villains, silly dialogue and a convenient, all-too-happy ending make this one of Cook's rare weak efforts.

Foreign Bidy

I have to rate this book 5 stars. Dr. Robin Cook had done it again! He is the master of Medical mysteries. The stories is mystifying, exciting scenes, good twists at the end. I love it.

One of the best!

Foreign Body may very well be one of the best works of Robin Cook.

Mediochre in comparison of the other booksbout

The story starts out quite slow and didn't leave much interpretation to handle. Even though, Robin Clark is by far my favorite author of all time and I will continue to read his art,
