To uncover the secrets of a superdrug, a doctor must go undercover and risk it all . . .
When a Hell’s Angel is thrown from his bike at 110 miles per hour, he should probably end up in the morgue. But this Angel survives his crash without a scratch, and ends up sleeping peacefully in the hospital. When Dr. Roger Clark inspects him, he finds only one defect: blue urine. Similar reports start to trickle in from hospitals upstate. It seems that a strange new drug is sending people into comas, and only Clark can unravel its mystery.
His search for answers takes him on the strangest trip of his life, into a place called “Eden,” which looks like paradise, but feels like hell.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
A quick read with fast-paced action based on a fear still prevalent today - doctors, and the conglomerations they hide behind, who care more about money and power than the humans they treat. Crichton was one of those authors/screenwriters who had the ability to scare the bah-jeezus out of me which made it interesting to see his early work and how he evolved as a writer. I thought the story held up well in the decades that have passed since this book was first written. The one downside is that the book has become a pot-boiler in today's time and it's easy to guess what happens next. That statement probably wouldn't have held up back in the seventies, when this book was initially released. I received a free copy of this book from Goodreads First Reads in exchange for a review.
I received this book from Goodreads first reads.Considering this book was first published in 1970..The future descriptions in the story make it very eerie.I couldn't put it down.Enjoyed it very much.It was the first time reading one of his books under the name John Lange..Will have to look into reading more of them.Thank You for the opportunity to do so.(less)
