Reaparece en todo su esplendor el inolvidable Jack Stapleton, el forense neoyorkino protagonista de las mejores novelas de Robin Cook. En esta ocasión tendrá que sacar de un grave apuro a su insufrible cuñado, un afamado y prepotente médico de Boston acusado de muerte por negligencia. Cuando, a petición de Stapleton, se practique la autopsia, la historia dará un giro sorpendente... ( )

Jack Stapleton and Laurie Montgomery return in Crisis, whilst there had been some wavering level of quality from Robin Cook in the last few books (Chromosone 6 I'm looking at you) the good news is that Crisis is back on track.

Whilst less medical than some of the others in the series it nonetheless is a page turner with all the right ingredients: Dr Craig Bowman the rich doctor separated from his wife living with a young hussy, the rich patients, a sudden death, a sleazy lawyer pushing a malpractice lawsuit.

The story primarily revolves around said malpractice lawsuit and Jack's sister Alexis asks him to fly out from New York to Boston on the eve of his wedding to see if he can aid in saving her marriage, and husband.

Looking forward to reading the next installment. ( )

After reading a few of Robin Cook's novels, I have come to the conclusion that he is not a very good writer. From a technical standpoint, his prose is very flawed. His dialogue is weak and doesn't resemble real conversations. In this novel, his characters are exceptionally weak and not remotely believable. Their actions don't match their motivations. The worst of the characters is Dr. Craig Bowman, who is sort of the main character in this novel. Not only is he inconsistent as a character, but he is also not at all likeable. None of the characters in this novel are likeable, even Dr. Jack Stapleton, who I think is supposed to be the most sympathetic of the characters.
The novel starts off with a patient of Bowman who dies of an apparent heart attack. Bowman is then sued by the patient's husband. Stapleton has had no contact with his sister, who is Bowman's wife, for over a decade, yet when she calls him to help out with the malpractice lawsuit against Bowman, he drops everything and goes to Boston to help even though he is getting married in less than a week. That is so preposterous and unbelievable, yet is very typical of all the characters' inconsistencies. Bowman, who had left his wife for another woman at the time of the patient's death, is now back with his wife. She is supporting him even though he dumped her and they don't seem to like each other at all.

The only redeemable aspect of this novel is that the storyline following the malpractice trial is fairly interesting and entertaining. On that basis, it was a readable novel, but it wasn't very good and got progressively worse as it went along.

Her main handicap from Craig's perspective was her Revere, Massachusetts, accent and syntax. Particularly grating was her tendency to pronounce every word ending in "er" as if it ended in a short but harsh "a."
Boston was not a city that was at all kind to a visiting driver. Nor were the Boston drivers.
