This book is a series of two Medical Examiner's in New York that alway seem to get into some sort of trouble as they solve the most unique crimes while still finding time to sort through their private lives.....Can't say more about Laurie Montgomery and Jack Stapleton. Several books are currently available in this series: Vector, Marker, Chromosone 6 and Crisis which is the latest in the series. You will throughly enjoy them....once you start reading you can't put them down plus you learn so much about the medical field and the scary things that truly go on inside their quiet walls where they don't necessarily want the public to know about.

Another book by Cook that I found very hard to put down. The plot is well written which makes it an easy and quick read. I have say that I did not see the ending coming.

In Cook's numerous best-selling medical thrillers, the nasty microbes and lethal diseases are never as loathsome as the greedy villains who spread illness for profit. Here, a cynical forensics doctor suspects that a for-profit medical firm is murdering its more costly subscribers.

How easily could someone start an epidemic?

A typical Cook page-turner. Much of the story line is fairly predictable but there are a few surprises. A fun read.

This was one of my favorite Robin Cook books. The main character, Jack Stapleton, is wonderfully irreverent.

Cook is slow to set up the story, it takes a few chapters for the plot to unfold. Once it's underway - this medical thriller keeps your attention.

Love these medical mysteries by Robin Cook! Not the same as the movie "contagion" if thats what you are looking for. This book nevertheless was about spreading microbes intentionally for the selfishness of a few fortune seekers. Good Read!
