Excellent16 April 2018 - Published on Amazon.com
Great story that holds your attention until the very end. As always, tons of detail but never boring. Thanks Robin Cook!

Consistently enjoyable story with annoying characters and obvious explanations but I will re-re-read the Jack and Laurie series over and over
Root of all evil vs. Laurie, Jack, and usual cast17 June 2008 - Published on Amazon.com
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.

Great book.30 August 2016 - Published on Amazon.com
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.

Fun and interesting26 August 2017 - Published on Amazon.com
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!
