I was very disappointed with this book. I read over a hundred pages and couldn't figure out why I was continuing. He used to be my favorite author...don't know what happened?

I've read many of Robin Cook's earlier books and I've always been impressed by his writing. This book, however, was a huge disappointment. The dialogue between the characters was stilted and the narrative was poorly organized. In several chapters I got the impression he meant to include a piece of information about the story line or one of the characters, but forgot and was too lazy to do a re-write. I didn't even finish 'Critical', it was so bad. Don't waste your time (or your money) on this one!

At the beginning of the book I had no sympathy for Angela Dawson and her specialty hospitals. When she wanted something she was rude, shrewd, and manipulative. Things fell apart and it was boo hoo, poor Angela. Disliking one of the main characters is a suicide read. Robin Cook spent way too much time explaining his BIG medical words. We get it Robin and if we don't there's always a medical dictionary.

If you like complex mysteries, this is for you. Good characters, complex plot, full of surprises.

The plot was a bit slow in developing but, the pace of action was up there with Cook's standard story. Coming from a hospital career I was amazed that Cook was so knowledeable about the drugs, procedures and such in the arena of pathology. If you like intrigue, death, morgues and suspense you can't do better on a cold, snowy evening.

This is another series with Drs. Jack Armstrong and Laurie Montgomery. This time Jack needs surgery on a leg injury and the hospital where he wants it done has had strange outbreaks of MRSA. Laurie has an uneasy feeling about this and is frantically trying to find more about the MRSA to talk Jack out of the surgery. Meanwhile, this hospital is going to have the initial IPO and wants to keep this quiet in order to not bring any bad publicity. Of course, organized crime has a hand in this since they are one of the investors. I really love Robin Cook's medical thrillers - the current topics are always covered, the stories move quickly, and the characters come alive, especially in this series. I only have issues with the organized crime/Mafia figures. They get too predictable, and that happened with this story. Right down to the "cement shoes." Keep them out of this, and it would be a FANTASTIC book. With them, it is merely a good book. Still worth the time.

Yet another medical thriller from Robin Cook. Loved this book. A little slow in the beginning, but the plot and the suspense build to a great ending!

Good story with lots of action. Too far out on the severity of injuries and ease of recovery.
