Editorial Reviews

Dave Barry
Basically, ''Mindbend'' is the traditional giant-evil-corporation-tries-to-take-over-the- world suspense novel....I had a real problem with this book, because the victims of the giant evil corporation, instead of the traditional innocent citizens, are doctors. The result, of course, was that I found myself rooting for the giant evil corporation. New York Times
Grand Rapids Press
A mind-boggling page-turner...Robin Cook has another sure bestseller.
Associated Press
A storyteller of the most daring imagination...chillingly entertaining and thought-provoking.

This book is a nice glimps of how the medicine industry, covers up its decieving acts of how they use their medicine. This book amazes me on how well it was written! The irony of this book is also great

This is one of Robin Cook's finest. You will find the pages flying by. Cook has created one of his best heroes in Adam, a young medical student soon to be cought up in a large-scale conspiracy. Mindbend contains enough thrills and chills you will be reluctant to get to the end.

This thriller that will amaze you, thrill you, and keep your eyes reading. One of Cook's most exciting climax yet. This electrifying novel is one that you won't regret reading! Fast paced suspense that will bend your mind.

I have read all of Robin Cook's novels and this was one of my favorites! Focusing on the Pharmaceutical industry, it keeps you on the edge of your seat, as you frantically turn the pages wondering what will happen next! Cook is a superb storyteller. He can't write them fast enough, if you ask me!

Adam and his wife are both pretty unlikable characters. It was not easy caring if they saved their marriage or their baby. The book is fun but unbelievable and even juvenile in places.

Most of this book was great, but the ending was too abrupt, and didnt touch on the consequences to the bad guys, and what exactly they were doing, and the purpose of it. I was disappointed, Robin Cook usually does a much better job.
