Rated 1 out of 5 by from Intervention, by Robin Cook This was the stupidest book, the plot was simple, the story lame. It was a waste of time and money. I am beyond disappointed.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Horrible Read When reading a thriller I expect to be "thrilled." Unfortunately I was not. Robin Cook's Novel, "Intervention" is about Dr. Jack Stapleton and his wife, Dr. Laurie Montgomery who are New York Medical examiners. They have a new child and the child has acquired a serious illness that leaves Jack in a constantly depressed state. Leaving Laurie to take care of their child while Jack constantly stays away from home and enveloped in work. This novel was seriously depressing. The constant attention and battles between outside characters were long and cumbersome. Especially since these fights were about religion. Most arguments were repeated between the outside characters and in the end, the story seemed short and cut off. The main characters had little to do with each other. Each moment in the novel felt tense and you literally wished to tell the characters to be quiet or get a new topic. *Warning a little spoiler* The two "thrilling" sequences in the novel were short and the final thrilling sequence was overly rushed. The creator of the "bad situation" in the novel is not even punished and all the fighting and arguing becomes moot when the main character agrees to a plan which destroys all the hard work that was completed. Making you wonder "Why did I read this?" I would not recommend this book to anyone. The story is slow, sad and leaves you with more questions then answers.
