I continue to read Robin Cook's novels because they are always suspenseful, with clearly drawn characters, some of whom are the goody-goodies, and others who are the villains. Also he brings something a little different to the thriller by writing about medical situations, an area he knows about as he is a physician. Fatal Cure, insofar as all of this is concerned, is no exception. I read it in only two days so clearly it is a suspenseful story.

He divides his time among Florida, New Hampshire, and Boston. His most recent novels include Host, Cell, and Nano.

Fatal Cure Robin Cook.

Описание: From Publishers Weekly. If Cook's skills as a writer were as finely tuned as his sense of timing, his 14th medical thriller (after Terminal) would be a lot more rewarding. Current political events guarantee that a suspense novel centering on health care management will be topical and at least potentially fascinating. From Library Journal. Recent medical school graduates David and Angela Wilson find the perfect setting for both their careers and family in rural Bartlet, Vermont.

Public health care is one of the most important issues in America today. Now Robin Cook, the bestselling master of medical suspense, confronts this controversial subject with an all-too-possible scenario as powerful--and terrifying--as his groundbreaking blockbuster, Coma...With its state-of-the-art facility and peaceful Vermont setting, the Bartlet Community Hospital seemed like a dream come true. It offered doctors David and Angela Wilson new career opportunities, a chance to work within an enlightened system of "Managed care" --and a perfect place to raise their daughter, who suffered from cystic fibrosis. But then, one by one, their dreams turned to nightmares. And day by day, their patients began to die...

Another great story by Robin Cook. This one incorporated the social issue of managed care and how it can negatively affect both doctors and patients. It had a good amount of intrigue with a murder thrown in and also one of the characters went on to another of Cook's novels What I liked most about the story was that I could easily identify with the main characters - they were just out of medical school and trying to decide what to do next with their lives. They made the decision to move to what appeared to be an idyllic little town only to find that it wasn't what they thought it would be. It incorporated several story lines including their personal disappointment with the medical industry, their sick child, sexual harassment, corporate greed and bad bosses, and a murder to boot! The only drawback about this audio book is the narrator. Barry Bostwick is just really hard to listen to.

This is another gripping medical thriller by Robin Cook.
The story revolves around married couple David and Angela who relocate to a small town hospital in Bartlett to further their careers in the medical profession. They are accompanied by their daughter Nikki who is a cystic fibrosis patient and needs constant medical attention.
Things look rosy for a while but bizarre events start occurring, which starts unnerving the couple. They discover a corpse in their home. This is followed by unexplained serial deaths of David's patients, without any medical reasons. Angela takes it upon herself to investigate by hiring a private detective. This step turns out to be a life and death question for the family.
Can David and Angela come out of this crisis unscathed? Who was behind the patient deaths? Why would they be doing it?
To get the answers, sit back, relax and enjoy reading this book.

I am surprised at some of the negative reviews I read on this title. I found it interesting and in some ways plausible. Fiction, to be sure, but . . . .
While not the best read ever, I think 4 stars is about right.
  • WOGY
It can get boring at times with too many characters introduced. The language is fancy and you may need to think at times about the quality of English. It's awesome. As the plot thickens the typical Robin Cook style is visible.

This mystery kept me guessing right to the end. The author is very knowledgeable and it is a scary read!
  • Micelhorav
Excellent read. Interesting topic about managed care going wrong.
  • Reemiel
In Fatal Cure, David and Angela Wilson are young doctors who have relocated to Vermont to work in a state of the art medical facility while raising their daughter, who suffers from Cystic Fibrosis. All is not as happy as it seems in this little small town Nirvana. The hospital is in financial trouble due to a contract with an HMO. Patients are dying unexpectedly, and the people at the hospital don’t care.

This novel is very heavy handed in its approach. It’s more about making political statements than telling a good story. This is something that Robin Cook suffers from. He often has good ideas, but his prose and storytelling is weak, as evidenced in this story. Ultimately the story is really about the current situation with healthcare and medical insurance, and not a tale of intriguing fiction. This was a weak novel, one that I would recommend skipping.

Carl Alves – author of Blood Street
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 <gag!> 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.
