A Medical Thriller
This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.
A lavishly funded, security-conscious nanotechnology institute in the foothills of the Rockies, Nano is ahead of the curve in the competitive world of molecular manufacturing, including the construction of microbivores, tiny nanorobots with the ability to gobble up viruses and bacteria.
But when Pia Grazdani takes a job there, she’s shocked by the secretive corporate culture. She’s warned by her boss not to investigate the other work being done at the gigantic facility, nor to ask questions about the source of the seemingly endless capital that funds the institute’s research. And when Pia encounters a fellow employee on a corporate jogging path suffering the effects of a seizure, she soon realizes she may have literally stumbled upon Nano’s human guinea pigs. Is the tech giant on the cusp of one of the biggest medical discoveries of the twenty-first century—a treatment option for millions—or have they already sold out to the highest bidder?

Robin Cook has written many excellent books over the years, and I fully enjoy his plots.
However, while the story line in Nano is interesting, the ending
was terrible !! Can't suggest buying it. sorry.
Part One of How Many?
I knew I was in trouble when there were only about fifty pages left. It was either going to be one of those hastily thrown together endings where the hero suddenly rides in pulling together all of the loose ends while saving the day or.... the rest is left for the sequel. If this was part one it should have stated so. I personally have no interest in slogging through another book to find out if the heroine is saved or not.
I have always enjoyed books by Robin Cook. He has a way of combining new science with an exciting plot. This book had very little science or excitement. I kept reading thinking that something would happen but almost nothing does.
