TIMELY AND TOPICAL: Robin Cook’s ability to seize on hot-button topics—such as emerging medical technology and the unknowns that come with reform—makes each new book fresh, timely, and irresistible. The market for medical thrillers is huge with the enormous followings of shows like “Bones” and “CSI” and writers like Tess Gerritsen, Jeffrey Deaver, and Patricia Cornwell. Cook’s ability to find the biggest trending topic is part of his genius and makes his books compelling.
NEWEST TECHNOLOGY: This particular book focuses on CRISPER/CAS9, the newest gene editing biotechnology, which allows genes to be removed and/or replaced in living cells with truly amazing precision and reliability.
AUTHOR OF THE ORIGINAL MEDICAL THRILLER: COMA was perhaps the first medical thriller, and year after year, Cook delivers the chills with ripped-from-the-headlines plots.
“Cook has been cranking out best-selling medical thrillers since the mid-1970s, and he long ago worked out a formula that works for his fans. [Charlatans] is no exception, proving once again that there is comfort and entertainment to be found in the familiar.” —Booklist
“Where Cook shines is in illuminating that combination of impersonal professionalism and potential terror haunting every hospital corridor. A return to form for the master of medical malevolence.”—Kirkus Reviews
