Editorial Reviews

Los Angeles Times
A real grabber.
Associated Press
Truly exciting.
Linda Lee
In the past, Dr. Cook's novels have been capable of inspiring a pleasant level of reader anxiety. ''Harmful Intent,'' however, induces only mirth with occasional bouts of nystagmus, a rotary motion of the eyes that results from trying to follow a sequence of objects rapidly passing by. In ''Harmful Intent'' no character achieves even the lifelike animation of a robot....How ghastly is the book? The conclusion involves a bursting bag of decomposed entrails used successfully as a weapon. Which leaves us with the real question this book elicits: is there such a thing as malpractice insurance for writers, and if so, what would Robin Cook's premiums be? -- New York Times
Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
An anesthesiologist, blamed for the deaths of a mother and her newborn infant, discovers that he has been framed for murder. ``This is a fast-paced, albeit improbable, story'' until ``a sudden twist . . . reveals an evil conspiracy that snaps belief,'' wrote PW. ``Cook . . . may be asking for more credulity than many readers are willing, or able, to provide this time out.'' (Feb.)
