A book in the Jack Stapleton, Laurie Montgomery series, 2007. This is a work of fiction

A book in the Jack Stapleton, Laurie Montgomery series, 2007. This is a work of fiction. Names, characters, places, and incidents either are the product of the author's imagination or are used fictitiously, and any resemblance to actual persons, living or dead, businesses, companies, events, or locales is entirely coincidental. Jean E. R. Cook, MSW, CAGS, psychologist. LLM, superb tax and estate planning attorney.

The main problems I had with this book: I guess the gangsters annoyed me the most. I'm not sure what they were doing in a medical thriller in the first place. It seems a huge part of the middle of the book was taken up by these incompetent, 2-bit, hack small-time gangsters with the cheesiest dialogue ever.

Great story that holds your attention until the very end. As always, tons of detail but never boring. Thanks Robin Cook!
  • Eta
Robin Cook again skillfully touches many areas of Medical Ethics while telling a captivating story. It would be great to meet him and learn about his process of research for his books. He clearly has mastered the medicine part, but demonstrates equal command and detail in the elements of Business and Law touched on in this book. Can also glean some insight into his thought process through his characters. Dr. Cook also does a great job referencing prior books in the series. Fantastic read.
  • Vikus
This book continues the story of two medical examiners with investigative minds. The plot is well thought out, character development (and consistency across the series) is good and the story is captivating. A fast page turner!
  • Bliss
The book starts off talking about several different people so you are a little confused at first but keep reading it all comes tigether.

I may be predjudiced because Robin Cook has been my favorite diversion for many years, but I was surprised by all the bad reviews this book got. I particularly like the Laurie and Jack books and thought this was at least as good as any before. As, a chemical engineer (doctor) / wannabe MD (REAL doctor), I also read Cook to learn something more about medical technology. I wonder if the bad reviews come from people bored by such things. Anyway, what I liked most about this one is that all the characters, good and "evil", had some good qualities that we could get interested in. We see a picture of healing being distorted by greed and the disasterous train of events it often puts in motion. I was never quite sure how it would turn out - a fairly complicated tale, in which Laurie, the heroine gets herself in quite a pickle, as she has before, and again Jack is not quite available to save her, but Lou does it. Anyway, according to me, at least a 4 - I liked it. I am waiting eagerly for the baby episode; at Laurie's age, it should be fraught with medical perils.
