Not too believable but readable I will give it 2 star A weak offering by Cook who never bothers to really develop characters nyway this implausible tale moves pretty fast The Tahiti Syndrome-Hawaiian Style and is incredibly predictable Moreover the ending which I will not reveal is perhaps MORE stupid than themusingcomedic defeat of the Curso De Redaccion aliens in Evolution the movie with Duchovnynd that guy from the 7 up commercials whassisname Orlando Jones where they use Selsun Blue to knock out the blubbery The Legacy of Luna: The Story of a Tree, a Woman and the Struggle to Save

Robin Cook a pseudonym of Robert William Arthur CookDr Robin Cook born May 4 1940 in New York City New York is an American doctor novelist who writes about medicine biotechnology and topics affecting public healthHe is best known for being the author who created the medical thriller genre by combining medical writing with the thriller genre of writing His books have been bestsellers on the New York Times Bestseller List with several at #1 A number of his books have also been featured in Reader's Digest Many were also featured in the Literary Guild Many have been made into motion picturesCook is a graduate of Wesleyan University and Columbia University School of Medicine He finished his postgraduate medical training at Harvard that included general surgery and ophthalmology He divides his time between homes in Florida New Hampshire and Massachusetts where he lives with his wife Jean He is currently on leave from the Massachusetts Eye and Ear Infirmary He has successfully combined medical fact with fiction to produce a succession of bestselling books Cook's medical thrillers are designed in part to make the public aware of both the technological possibilities of modern medicine and the ensuing ethical conundrumsCook got a taste of the larger world when the Cousteau Society recruited him to run its blood gas lab in the South of France while he was in medical school Intrigued by diving he later called on a connection he made through Jacues Cousteau to become an auanaut with the US Navy Sealab when he was drafted in the 60's During his navy career he served on a nuclear submarine for a seventy five day stay underwater where he wrote his first book 1Cook was a private member of the Woodrow Wilson Center's Board of Trustees appointed to a six year term by the President George W Bush2edit Doctor NovelistDr Cook's profession as a doctor has provided him with ideas and background for many of his novels In each of his novels he strives to write about the issues at the forefront of current medical practiceTo date he has explored issues such as organ donation genetic engineeringfertility treatment medical research funding managed care medical malpractice drug research drug pricing specialty hospitals stem cells and organ transplantation3Dr Cook has been remarked to have an uncanny ability to anticipate national controversy In an interview with DrCook Stephen McDonald talked to him about his novel Shock; Cook admits the timing of Shock was fortuitous I suppose that you could say that it's the most like Coma in that it deals with an issue that everybody seems to be concerned about he says I wrote this book to address the stem cell issue which the public really doesn't know much about Besides entertaining readers my main goal is to get people interested in some of these issues because it's the public that ultimately really should decide which way we ought to go in something as that has enormous potential for treating disease and disability but touches up against the ethically problematic abortion issue4Keeping his lab coat handy helps him turn our fear of doctors into bestsellers I joke that if my books stop selling I can always fall back on brain surgery he says But I am still very interested in being a doctor If I had to do it over again I would still study medicine I think of myself as a doctor who writes rather than a writer who happens to be a doctor After 35 bookshe has come up with a diagnosis to explain why his medical thrillers remain so popular The main reason is we all realize we are at risk We're all going to be patients sometime he says You can write about great white sharks or haunted houses and you can say I'm not going into the ocean or I'm not going in haunted houses but you can't say you're n
