In this twist of Cook¿s signature ¿doctors-gone-wild¿ plotline, unsuspecting patients of a rural hospital are plagued by sudden unexplainable deaths as a duo of doctors digs up the dirt. Literally. Although many of Cook¿s plots are quite similar, his style is fast-paced suspense that will have the readers guessing at the bad-guy until the last turn. I¿m generally not a fan of redundant plotlines or recycled characters, but I¿ve recently noticed Cook¿s works embody a gigantic medical ethics course. Each book explores a new ethical dilemma. Fatal Cure suggests to the reader that although America¿s medical system needs to be renovated, we may be driving it down an even more dangerous superhighway¿one with very few exits. This is not one of Cook¿s best works. His introduction to the hospital backdrop limps through a few administrative meetings. I¿m already having nightmares about administrative meetings, thank-you, I don¿t need to read about them at bedtime. Once the readers zone out (or check their blackberries) through this sludgy beginning, the plot quickly picks up pace. I recommend this book to any avid Robin Cook fan.

Pretty much most of Robin Cooks books are the same, with slightly different situations and characters. If you are a fan of his then you would also like this one. If you aren't, then you probably won't like it. For me Robin Cook is a good, quick read for when I don't want to think too hard.

This was a pretty good book, not Cooks best though. It leaves you hanging at the end (some things it doesn't cover). Other than that it is a page turner and scares you what hospitals try to do. But Cook finds some way to show you these things in many of his books.

This book was very good. This was the first book I ever read by Robin Cook and I've been a fan of his every since. I was looking for a new author to read at the time. I was looking around the bookstore and almost didnt pick this book up. But I'm glad I did. I've enjoyed this book more than once. The story kept me guessing till the end
