"BAFFLING BINGO DAY"

I'M EXCITED TO ANNOUNCE THIS THURSDAY'S
"BAFFLING BINGO DAY"
MYSTERY BOOK CHOICE IS.....



 GIVEAWAY ENDED
BY ROBIN BOOK


ABOUT THE BOOK:


The New York Times-bestselling author and master of the medical thriller returns with another heart-pounding story of medical intrigue.

With her young son's potentially fatal neuroblastoma in complete remission, New York City medical examiner Laurie Montgomery returns to work, only to face the case of her career. The investigation into the death of CIA agent Kevin Markham is a professional challenge-and has Laurie's colleagues wondering if she still has what it takes after so much time away.
Markham's autopsy results are inconclusive, and though it appears he's been poisoned, toxicology fails to corroborate Laurie's suspicions. While her coworkers doubt her assassination theory, her determination wins over her husband, fellow medical examiner Jack Stapleton, and together they discover associations to a large pharmaceutical company and several biomedical start-ups dealing with stem-cell research. Laurie and Jack race to connect the dots before they are consumed in a dangerous game of biotech espionage.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:


Doctor and author Robin Cook is widely credited with introducing the word “medical” to the thriller genre, and thirty one years after the publication of his breakthrough novel, Coma, he continues to dominate the category he created. Cook has successfully combined medical fact with fantasy to produce a succession of twenty-seven New York Times bestsellers that have been translated into forty languages. To date, they include Outbreak (1987), Mindbend (1988), Mutation (1989), Harmful Intent (1990), Vital Signs (1991), Blindsight (1992), Terminal (1993), Fatal Cure (1994), Acceptable Risk (1995), Contagion (1996), Chromosome 6 (1997), Toxin (1998), Vector (1999), Shock (2001), Seizure (2003), Marker (2005), Crisis (2006), Critical (2007) and Foreign Body (2008).

In each of his novels, Robin Cook strives to elucidate various medical/biotech ethical issues. Dr. Cook says he chose to write thrillers as a way to use entertainment as a method of exposing the public to public policy conundrums such as genetic engineering, medical economics, in vitro fertilization, research funding, managed care, drug research, organ transplantation, stem cell research, concierge medicine, and M.D. owned specialty hospitals.

There have been numerous theatrical movies, television movies, and mini-series made from Robin Cook’s work. In addition to the successful feature film Coma, in December 1993, CBS-TV aired “Robin Cook’s Harmful Intent”; in November 1994 NBC-TV aired “Robin Cook’s Mortal Fear”; in May 1995, NBC-TV aired “Robin Cook’s Virus,” based on Outbreak; in February 1996 NBC-TV aired “Robin Cook’s Terminal”; in 1997 NBC-TV aired “Robin Cook’s Invasion”; and in October 2001 TNT-TV aired “Robin Cook’s Acceptable Risk”.

I have read several of Robin Cook's books, one of my favorites is Coma. There is another book that I will never forget and that is Outbreak. I read the book before I saw the movie. I almost fell off couch (saw it at home) when I saw the opening of the movie. The building used to represent the CDC was the Federal Building in Laguna Niguel, CA where I worked for 10 years. Whenever it is on TV I watch the opening, telling myself that I will juswt watch watch that part but always end up watching the full movie!

hendy said...

I want to win this book because who doesn't love a medical mystery? My favorite shows are CSI, Criminal Minds, Grey's Anatomy etc. so this is similar to these shows just in the written word. I found it interesting that author Robin Cook is credited with introducing the word “medical” to the thriller genre. Who knew ?

hendy said...

I haven't read any of his books but I would like to read "Coma" because it's described as a great thriller novel with a lot of suspense. Supposedly there is also a movie based on this book so I could watch the movie to supplement the book.
