I enjoy Robin Cook's books, but did not care for this one. There's at least as much courtroom drama in this one as there is medical, so be warned. There are huge plot holes. Someone you think is a bad guy just kind of goes away at the end. Oh, and the end? Rushed and contrived. Big letdown after Marker.

This was a good book with an unexpected ending. Not a bad story but still a little graphic. I found it an interesting read.

The story is sort of interesting, but the book doesn't move at the frenetic pace of some of Cook's other stories. It certainly isn't scary or edge-of-your-seat. But it does offer an interesting look into the recently developed idea of "concierge" medicine and the potential pitfalls thereof.

Not his best. Started slow, but over all I liked it.
