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.''

    Game of life and death played by some sick, twisted people

    I've read Robin Cook books since I was a teenager and this really reminds me of those great vintage Cooks I used to gobble up back then. Once I discovered him I was completely immersed in the world of medical thrillers, surprisingly they make for great reads, if you like books, have a bit of interest in science that is easy to understand, no worries about fancy jargon, then look no further, once you start this genre it's hard to stop.

    The main character is a good guy with a bit of bad luck that turns against him in the worst way possible. Anesthesia isn't fast or easy, but when a healthy, young pregnant patient suffers from a grand mal seizure and dies, all eyes are on you. Jeffrey was having one of those days, the worst thing possible happens on a day that sends shock waves through all the layers of his life, in a moment everything seemed to collapse and not only is there a death, but punishment that will follow, both leave Jeffrey a man on the run. He decides to do the opposite of what is supposed to happen, he goes out to prove his innocence and earn back his freedom. Taking a huge risk, he dodges the law and in turn is followed by a nasty bounty hunter who gives him the worst chases of his life but only to find an enemy so weird, evil and cold hearted that his freedom suddenly seems a higher price to pay than he could have imagined. The book starts and doesn't stop, the thrills, chases, close calls, some funny moments and plenty of suspense kept me glued to the story, it was hard not to read it, once started it begged to be completed.

    Reading this book was a lot of fun, just when I thought that Jeffrey had it hard, something else would come barging in, shaking up everything making me say things out loud. Fast and fun, it really is what good reading is all about, taking a trip somewhere, being taken prisoner and left breathless until the ending finally releases you exhausted but ready for more.

    Couldn't Put Harmful Intent Down

    Harmful intent was amazing I couldn't put it down. I'am in the healthcare field and I found it amazing how the storyline in the book could relate to something that could really happen in real life. It was a shocker and an eye opener. The main character amazed me with his intelligence the whole way through. Definitely a great weekend reader.

    good reading

    I have always liked Robin Cook's 'delivery' of his work. This ebook was no exception.

    I could hardly put this book down. I finished it in two nights, when books usually take me several weeks. I found myself holding my breath at times... This was my very first Robin Cook novel and surely not my last. Highly recommended!
