A notorious underworld figure is gunned down and his body suspiciously disappears from the city morgue before it can be autopsied. Days later, the mutilated body turns up missing its head, hands, feet and, more curiously, its liver. Determined to get to the bottom of the mystery, forensic pathologist Dr. Jack Stapleton soon finds himself being led down a grisly trail that leads him to the steamy jungles of equatorial Africa where he uncovers a sinister medical conspiracy. Chromosome 6 is a page-turning medical thriller from Robin Cook.
