Robin Cook's latest plot--the threat of an anthrax [bacterium] turned loose in a New York government building and in Central Park--is ripped straight from the headlines, and as such it may be charitably described as having a certain lumpish quality in the prose and an overabundance of cuteness in the lead characters.

Jack Stapleton and Laurie Montgomery, the dueling forensic pathologists who bounced off each other in Cook's Hardcover edition.



Reader Reviews
Good... but not great, October 17, 2003 Reviewer: John Green from West Hills, CA United States Yuri Davydov is a disillusioned cab driver in NYC with unused skills in biotechnology. He's decided that the "American Dream" is all a bad joke and he'd rather return to Russia and take his chances there. He teams up with some white supremacists to unleash bioweapons (anthrax and botulism) upon the Zionist citizens of New York City. Dr. Jack Stapleton is a medical examiner with a sad past who stumbles upon some unusual cases and becomes wrapped up in trying to prevent the impending disaster. I enjoyed the story quite a bit, some parts of which were rather tense and exciting. The romantic subplot between Jack and Dr. Laurie Montgomery was a bit tiresome, however, and some of the wording sounded downright "cheesy." And while the white supremacist characters were thoroughly despicable and constantly spouting rote propaganda lines, I found myself feeling sympathetic toward the Russian cab driver (even though he was plotting an attack!). The surprise ending was quite satisfying, however. I listened to this book on CD and was rather impressed with the many accents and voices the reader used (I may have misspelled some names above because of that). And while I wasn't totally impressed with this book (I think it's the first of Mr. Cook's books that I've read) I'll probably read another by the author. It wasn't perfect but it was kind of fun. --This text refers to the Audio Cassette edition
