BOOK REVIEW

SHOCK by Robin Cook
MYSTERY THRILLER
Released: Sept. 1, 2001

"Administers more of a routine physical than a real shock, but lots of fun anyway, with Deborah a great sidekick. The girls' masterful verbal swordplay is quite enough to keep the pages singing."
Bestselling Cook (Vector, 1999, etc.) lets loose another infectious medical thriller, this one a delightfully readable though oddly girlish effort that could well be titled Nancy Drew and the Missing Ovary. Read full book review >

BOOK REVIEW

HOST by Robin Cook
FICTION & LITERATURE
Released: Oct. 20, 2015

BLINDSIGHT by Robin Cook
MYSTERY THRILLER
Released: Jan. 6, 1992

An ironically revealing title for ophthalmologist Cook's fuzziest novel in years—an awesomely inept medical/crime thriller about a forensic pathologist up against the mob. Read full book review >
