The ever-popular and prolific Cook (Fatal Cure, Audio Reviews, LJ 9/15/94) sets his latest medical thriller in Equatorial Guinea, Africa. Dr. Kevin Marshall worries that he has traded his ethics for a gleaming futuristic lab. Meanwhile, stateside, Dr. Jack Stapleton, a forensic pathologist, is deeply troubled by an unidentified body that is missing various parts. Jack and his colleague, Laurie, identify the corpse as that of a Mafia kingpin, and their investigation leads them to Africa. Narrator Boyd Gaines is superb. The producer, however, would do well to abandon the tiresome and distracting sound effects that serve only to lend an old-time radio feel to the production. Missing are end-of-side cues prompting listeners to flip or change tapes. For popular fiction collections.?Terrill Persky, Naperville, Ill.

The harrowing new bestseller from the master of medical thrillers, written with the bold strokes of reality that are RobinCook's trademarks.
Definitely a "keep you in your favorite chair for hrs." read.
When notorious underworld figure Carlo Franconi is gunned down, his mafioso competitors become prime suspects. Suspicions are fueled when Franconi's body disappears from the city morgue before it can be autopsied - much to the embarrassment of the chief medical examiner and the mayor, but to the amusement of the morgue's resident cynic, forensic pathologist Dr. Jack Stapleton.
one of Robin Cook's BEST!!!!!!
Cook always does an excellent job of walking you through what should be a difficult to understand situation. Remembering that, just think about the idea of growing donor organs in another host for use when they are matured.....Yep, that's right, this one will keep you turning the pages into the wee hours of the night and you may even skip dinner :)
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, Contagion 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.
