I usually end up comparing Robin Cook to any other author who writes medical thrillers. Robin Cook is very sedate compared to Neil McMahon and 'Blood Double'.
The story: Carrol Monks, M.D. is the fictional doctor for this story about the human genome and the good that would come from computer manipulation. Unfortunately, (depending on your point of view) it points up the many truly horrific things that COULD happen with such manipulation also.
Mr. McMahon has crafted a relatively short, but very intense story here and I have requested several more of his books. Very entertaining. Good job.
