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.

Meet the Author

Robin Cook

Doctor and author Robin Cook is widely credited with introducing the word “medical” to the thriller genre, and thirty one years after the publication of his breakthrough novel, Coma, he continues to dominate the category he created. Cook has successfully combined medical fact with fantasy to produce a succession of twenty-seven New York Times bestsellers that have been translated into forty languages. To date, they include Outbreak (1987), Mindbend (1988), Mutation (1989), Harmful Intent (1990), Vital Signs (1991), Blindsight (1992), Terminal (1993), Fatal Cure (1994), Acceptable Risk (1995), Contagion (1996), Chromosome 6 (1997), Toxin (1998), Vector (1999), Shock (2001), Seizure (2003), Marker (2005), Crisis (2006), Critical (2007) and Foreign Body (2008).

In each of his novels, Robin Cook strives to elucidate various medical/biotech ethical issues. Dr. Cook says he chose to write thrillers as a way to use entertainment as a method of exposing the public to public policy conundrums such as genetic engineering, medical economics, in vitro fertilization, research funding, managed care, drug research, organ transplantation, stem cell research, concierge medicine, and M.D. owned specialty hospitals.



There have been numerous theatrical movies, television movies, and mini-series made from Robin Cook’s work. In addition to the successful feature film Coma, in December 1993, CBS-TV aired “Robin Cook’s Harmful Intent”; in November 1994 NBC-TV aired “Robin Cook’s Mortal Fear”; in May 1995, NBC-TV aired “Robin Cook’s Virus,” based on Outbreak; in February 1996 NBC-TV aired “Robin Cook’s Terminal”; in 1997 NBC-TV aired “Robin Cook’s Invasion”; and in October 2001 TNT-TV aired “Robin Cook’s Acceptable Risk”.

    Action-Packed Thriller

    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.

    Robin Cook-Truly the Master of Medical Suspense!

    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!

    Ending was awful

    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.
