Jack Stapleton is never mentioned in this book yet so this book centers around the young forensic pathologist, Dr. In this book, she begins to take notice of an unusual number of deaths of young professionals who seemed to be succumbing to an overdose of cocaine. But they are not known drug users.
Because of the si This book is the first medical thriller series of Jack Stapleton and Laurie Montgomery. Because of the similarities in their deaths, Dr. Montgomery begins to suspect that something is amiss and begins to blinvsight the mystery. He does not initially share her concerns over these drug induced deaths because he was more focused on a number of mob related killings.
Despite their different opinions on the deaths of these young professionals, Lou has the hots for Laurie, but timing is everything. I found myself blindsighf Dr. Montgomery and Lou very much! The flow of events in this book is so smooth. The author weaves a fine plot that will keep the reader eagerly turning the pages of this book, even though the discerning reader will probably solve the mystery before Laurie and Lou do so.
I found the story interesting rogin if you want a good quick read this book should do very well. I bought this book new when it was on clearance and it has been sitting on my bookshelf for 18 years or so.
So, I finally decided to try and get some of the older books off the bookshelf, and started with this one. This book was fantastic! It combined a pathologist, opthamologist, police detective, and some organized crime thugs into a very interesting and page turning story. I entered the military only a I bought this book new when it was on clearance and it has been sitting on my bookshelf for 18 years or so.
I entered the military only a few years after this book was published and I can remember countless hours in classes on sexual harassment and discrimination.
This book shed a little light onto why it was such a hot topic at the time. The main character, Laurie Montgomery, was an attractive young woman and would often get chastised or harassed for being a forensic pathologist for the office of the Medical Examiner.
Men would treat her more like a model, than give her credit for being a medical doctor. I just found it interesting to get an idea of how things were just before I entered into the professional world. Coo, 24, Jaspreet rated it it was ok. I read this book to fulfill the medical condition category of a reading challenge blindskght wish that I had not wasted my time. One of the most frustrating things about this book for me was that it was recommended to me by a librarian. I visited the public library in my new home town for the first time and decided to ask for a recommendation.
I was a little skeptical when I picked up the book, but I thought that I should be open minded. Turns out that it is possible to be so open minded that your brai I read this book to fulfill the medical condition category of a reading challenge and wish that I had not wasted my time.
Turns out that it is possible to be so open minded that your brains fall out. The review that I posted above sums up some of the issues that I had with the book. The characters were weak!
Also, I found the book filled with some racist undertones. As I was reading the book, I started making a list of each racist or stereotypical comment I encountered. Since so much time has passed and I misplaced the paper, I am going to go from memory. I found that annoying not only because the description usually also contained something negative, but I found myself wondering about the ethnic background of all the other characters.
Are we to assume that if the author does not describe the characters that they are white? One of the main characters of blinesight novel is Dr. I did appreciate the attempt at having a strong, female bllndsight. However, I got annoyed with all the descriptions of her beauty and her strange dating antics.
I just felt like it did not move the plot forward. Instead, I found her dialogue whiny and her approach to matters of the heart trite.
Finally, the worst part about this book is that I figured out the mystery with at least a third of the book remaining. The ending tied together a little bit too neatly. I did not care much about any of the characters and I felt angry with the lack of character development. I would not recommend this book to a friend.

Mr robin must have idea about all the drugs and its effect ,you can conclude that from his imaginary lead star actress ,Mrs Laurie Montgomery,who was playing role of medical examiner ,spy and responsible citizen by putting her professional job in danger to accomplish her noble cause to aware citizen of Manhattan about murder series due to overdoze of drug called cocaine.
She did her best ,even worked on sunday even after being fired ,to resolve the mysteries It taste good for all mystery lovers. She did her best ,even worked on sunday even after being fired ,to resolve the mysteries death series which was published lately with containing truth about deaths due to drug. Her main goal was to prevent more deaths due to heavily absorbed cocaine ,she actually had seen her brother’s death in front of her own binoculars due to same overdose.
In between Dr jorden,the ophthalmologist, and Mr spy lou also helping him to take her away for dinner in order to win her heart ,healthy competition was there between them.
Superior of laurie ,the organized crime unit due to political pressure all were tried to keep as secret and showed all the deaths as natural but at last laurie was successful in her life saving journey. Rich people are not always lucky I had previously read Vector in this series, which I picked up because I have a weakness for infectious disease outbreaks in fiction.
I liked the characters so much I thought I’d go back and try the rest of this series. This is the first book, though Jaqck Stapleton does not appear in this one, and is the first one to showcase Dr Laurie Montgomery. It isn’t as good as Vector, but I did like the story of corruption in the organ donation field. I really enjoyed the detective aspect to it. Eh, you know, it’s ok. It’s like lots of Robin Cook’s books – half medical text book and half scripted tv drama.
I really believe his writing improved over time, but this being one of his earlier books, my reading was constantly interrupted by myself saying, “Nobody would do that,” or “Nobody would react that way,” or “Has he ever met a woman before? I bought my copy of this book at Cok Price Books I think. I did not notice that the former owner had written inside the front cover Eh, you know, it’s ok.
I did not notice that the former owner had written inside the front cover “Ok, but Dumb ending”. Comparing the writing to Robin Cook’s signature on the front cover I would swear that the inscription was written by Robin Cook.

Jul 05, Carrie rated it really liked it Shelves: I always enjoy Cook’s books for a bit of escapism. Quick but page-turning read. Robin Cook is a new name for me blindeight the thriller genre. Reading the synopsis and learning that it was medical thriller had me hooked. I really loved how much detail Robin put in his books. For example the autopsies done, you get to know every little detail from making the Y-insection to the fluid in the intestines. And it is so vivid!
That is why I gave it three stars. The story itself isn’t particularly bad but I found it too much.
