Rated 4 out of 5 by from Engaging Good rhythm to the story. Kept me engaged in the progress of the characters all the way along. Only one thought or observation is that the story ended rather abruptly. Just when I was getting ready for the plot twist, it was over, but at least it didn't leave me hanging.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Good Book, Bad Ending I thoroughly enjoyed this book until I reached the end. It was one of the poorest endings that I have ever read. It leaves the reader hanging, as if there will be a sequel. But, there is no indication that the author, Robin Cook, plans to do a sequel - as I indicated in my title for this review, the book is a good read with a very disappointing ending.
