Nu weet ik waarschijnlijk het antwoord, maar dat is nooit uitgelegd in het boek. Languages Italiano Nederlands Suomi Edit links. If it was the father, why would he do that to his own children? But the corporate campus is a place of secrets. That affluence is directly attributable to his controversial "concierge" practice - his patients pay a hefty up-front retainer that buys them special attention and a higher degree of direct, personal care because of their "membership" in a lower volume practice.
I feel that he is preachy, redundant, and an over-user of medical terminology which laypeople cannot comprehend, perhaps without having first read many of his other novels or being a previous medical student. It was hard to keep focus, and it took me a lot longer to read than it should have for its size.
I kept putting it down, out of boredom.
As thrilling as his fans claim his writing is, I couldn't help but feel like I was reading one big chronology of the Bos I dislike Robin Cook as a writer. As thrilling as his fans claim his writing is, I couldn't help but feel like I was reading one big chronology of the Boston cityscape and the difficulty with which the main character traversed the town's confusing surface streets.
Also, the end was unpredictable, but not in a suspenseful twist kind of way. It ended completely out of left-field, and the author gave very little insight or reasons for the way he ended the story. I would not recommend this book to anyone. Wish me luck. Jan 15, Michael rated it liked it Shelves: Well I have to admit that this book kept me turning pages.
But ultimately it dragged on quite a bit, the dialog was a little silly, and the ending didn't really answer all my questions. In fact I'm not sure it was even logically consistent with the rest of the book.
And, oh In fact, one case is immediately forgotten and never mentioned again. There is no connection, the entire novel is about only one of the cases, and there seems to be no point to the section at the beginning detailing the second case. The impression I get is that Cook shifted gears to focus on only one case but that due to poor editing the section introducing the other case and this statement remained. Pretty sloppy.

Jun 09, Denise rated it did not like it. Crisis Hardcover This book was implausible and boring. Lots of errors that editors should have found -- I'm too uninterested even to bother pointing them out because fixing them won't improve the book anyway.
Dumb premise -- stupid characters -- unanswered questions -- bad ending Where is the "medical" in this thriller? I am even tired of Jack and Laurie and basketball and unrealistic chase scenes 1.
I am even tired of Jack and Laurie and basketball and unrealistic chase scenes that have absolutely no bearing on the climax of the story or the rationales the doctor provides. Nothing at the end made sense and I didn't like this book at all. View 1 comment. Nov 13, Mike rated it really liked it Shelves: Quite possible the best Cookbook I've read. I think this is my fourth??
Still a great performance by narrator George Guidell. The pacing here was much faster and the subject more interesting. I was concerned for a second at we'd spend this entire novel in the courtroom but gratefully that wasn't the case.
My only complaint of any would be that I am actually still unclear as to the ending. I mean, what happened? Aug 11, Beth bibliobeth rated it it was ok. I usually enjoy Robin Cook's medical thrillers, this one however had a lot more court-room drama going on in it and read a bit like a poor mans John Grisham. The storyline was good and some characters had a lot of potential but it was never really developed. The small cliffhangers at the end of every chapter a la James Patterson didn't work at all for this style of story.
Please see my full review at http: Oct 20, Barbara Whittaker rated it did not like it Shelves: Wasted several hours of my perfectly good life on this huge disappointment. Dreadful, trite descriptions, incongruent ending - Cook must have been having a crisis of his own to throw this together so poorly.
Have read other titles by Cook and enjoyed them - don't know what happened to him here. Nov 16, Lynn Orser rated it it was amazing Shelves: Fast read because the book was very exciting.
I enjoy novels about trials because of the two competing sides both have an agenda and use all the tricks to win. This is the 6th in the Jack Stapelton and Laurie Montgomery series and I look forward to the rest of this group of novels. Jan 12, Deanna rated it it was ok Shelves: This book took me about 2 months to finish!
It was VERY slow for much of it, picking up about 5 chapters or so from the end. I thought the ending was crappy. Wouldn't recommend this to anyone. De flaptekst beloofde drie slachtoffers. Knap waardeloos als je het mij vraagt. Ik snap de toevoeging van die slachtoffers ook niet.
Waarom plaatste Cook die in het verhaal terwijl ze helemaal niets met de huidige zaak te maken lijken t Personages: Waarom plaatste Cook die in het verhaal terwijl ze helemaal niets met de huidige zaak te maken lijken te hebben? Het verhaal sleepte zich maar voort en er gebeurde nauwelijks iets spannends. Hou toch op zeg. Nou, als we het dan toch over de rechtszaak moeten hebben: Niet alleen bleef de eiser op de achtergrond terwijl die een grotere rol zou moeten spelen, de advocaat van de beklaagde was ook niet echt denderend goed en maakte een incompetente indruk.
Over de advocaat van de eiser gesproken: De bedreigingen naar Jack toe hebben uiteindelijk zo blijkt uit de ontknoping alleen maar te maken met geld en het winnen van de zaak. Wie heeft die idioten ingehuurd om de kinderen vast te binden op de bank? Nu weet ik waarschijnlijk het antwoord, maar dat is nooit uitgelegd in het boek. Bovendien, wat is er met de andere twee slachtoffers gebeurd die in de flaptekst worden genoemd: Wordt daar ooit nog over gesproken?
Al met al rammelt het verhaal aan alle kanten. De dialogen waren erg onnatuurlijk en de personages ook. Jack ging trouwen over vijf dagen nota bene! Daarbij wist hij niet eens zeker of hij wel wilde trouwen, maar waarom is dit niet verder uitgewerkt? Over Tony en Franco kan ik kort zijn: Over Craig weten we ook niet zo veel, behalve dan dat hij een arrogante, onuitstaanbare kwal is — dat is het.
Voor mij voorlopig geen Cook meer.

It was perfect for listening while driving. I haven't delved into medical thrillers so enjoyed it for what it is - entertainment. He gets slapped with a medical Another audio book passed to me to listen to in the car narrated by George Guidell. He gets slapped with a medical malpractice law suit for the death of problem patient, Patience Stanhope, who died from a heart attack, or did she? Alexis also a psychologist reaches out to her brother medical examiner Doc Jack Stapleton in NYC to try to help her estranged husband.
He's about to marry his long time love Laurie so has less than a week to 'help' with the case.
Though I had not read any other books in this series, I had no trouble getting to know the characters and settings. I found the book very drawn out and repetitive. The conclusion was certainly a non sequitur and left many unanswered questions. Who hired the thugs who intimidated and threatened the girls?
If it was the father, why would he do that to his own children? Lacking conclusive proof, Laurie refuses, fearing it would trigger widespread panic. Shock by Robin Cook. Two graduate students decide to solve their financial problems by becoming egg donors at an exclusive, highly profitable fertility clinic on Boston's North Shore.

Fever is a novel by Robin Cook and is in the category of medical thriller.
Set mainly in the Boston area and in rural New Hampshire , its main characters are a year-old girl, Michelle Martel, with leukemia and her father, Charles Martel, a former allergist turned cancer researcher, as well as her stepmother Cathryn and her two older brothers, Chuck and Jean-Paul. After falling ill one winter morning, Michelle is hospitalized, diagnosed with acute myeloblastic leukemia , and given experimentally high doses of chemotherapy , to which her father objects, since it has no effect on her leukemia and weakens her with side effects.
Cathryn, a former receptionist at the fictional Weinberger Institute in Cambridge, Massachusetts , where Charles has worked since turning to cancer research, has little medical knowledge and only wants what is best for her stepchildren, and feels torn between her husband and Michelle's well-meaning but conventional doctors. Charles then traces Michelle's leukemia and a neighbor boy's fatal aplastic anemia to benzene dumped into the river flowing past their house by a local rubber and plastic recycling plant owned by the same corporation that owns the Weinberger Institute and the pharmaceutical company that makes a cancer drug he is being forced to study, and discovers that he is surrounded by corruption, as family, colleagues and the authorities turn against him.
He ends up valiantly trying an experimental treatment based on his own research on Michelle, desperately trying to save her life, while barricaded in his own home, sought by the police, and fighting off attacks by thugs hired by the recycling plant and its parent company which are condoned by the local authorities.
