It was intriguing - characters were interesting... good guys were good, bad guys were bad lol. Ending was a little flat. Almost like- OH NO... I've made this book too long so BOOM. DONE.

Neat idea - happy for part of the ending. Well this review kinda sucks hahahah. ( )

The story was ok, nothing great, but the end wrapped up so fast that I felt like I had whiplash. A poorly executed ending ruined completely for me. ( )

From Library Journal 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.

work was much slower than expected yesterday and today and so i had a lot more time to read than i thought i would - still, i flew through this book. it was fun, interesting, and while not great literature, much better than i expected. i liked the science, most of which was simply explained and actually plausible (except, i think, for the *spoiler* rapid evolution of the bonobos, which, even with the chromosomal help, seemed a bit too speeded up).

*end spoiler* i like that robin cook seems to be one of the only thriller writers that i've read (and i haven't read that many, i suppose) who is completely able to write his books with no sexism, with no gender stereotyping of his characters, with strong, leading, flawed women and equally strong, flawed, and non threatened men. also i really like that what he does with the medical and science stuff is generally to make it a moral or ethical issue, wrapped up in the thriller. i last read two of his books probably 15 or 20 years ago (the year of the intern and coma and remember liking them, remember strong women, remember them factoring into my decision (or backing up my decision, i can't remember which) not to go to medical school, but remember thinking they were pretty strong books. in spite of a couple of cheesy parts in this book, and the overuse of the word "quipped," i would be quite happy to read him again.

An odd book, in the last episode (Contagion) Dr Jack Stapleton was a cynical & sarcastic risk taker whose banter I quite enjoyed, in the opening of this book suddenly he has the appetite for risk of a 90 year old with osteoporosis, then suddenly he decides to flit off to Africa, with his own money, and 5 additional people, 2 of which were complete strangers he's just met. It all was a bit ramshackle.

On the medical side of things, the areas of the book which dealt with forensic pathology and transgenics were interesting but the overall impression was a handful of narratives grouped together where there were holes in the plot line. It wasn't a bad book, but I definitely preferred the other Robin Cook books where realism takes a higher priority compared to sensationalism. ( )
