Four Stars

This is another Robin Cook spellbinder that gives a doctor’s insight into the medical profession. The main plot centers around two fourth-year medical school students who find out that some in the hospital complex where they study are doing nefarious things. It shows how the author believes the pharmaceutical industry is in business for money and not the care of its patients. There are several twists and turns to the story that involves prospective take-overs, bad doctors, and naive students. The story moves and remains interesting throughout. If like mysteries and are curious about how a doctor feels about the medical industry, it’s worth your time.
