    Robin Cook nailed this one! I work in Health Care and the idea of an app that controls a patients care is not outrageous.

    If one thinks of the just how much technology is used in health care and the outrageous cost of care in this country coupled with the use of social media for communication it doesn't take a lot of imagination to see where things COULD go.

    I found merit in both the arguments of the insurance company and the protagonist.

    An EXCELLENT book and George Guidall is icing on the cake.

    George Wilson, M.D., a radiology resident in Los Angeles, is about to enter a profession on the brink of an enormous paradigm shift, foreshadowing a vastly different role for doctors everywhere. The smartphone is poised to take on a new role in medicine, no longer as a mere medical app but rather as a fully customizable personal physician capable of diagnosing and treating even better than the real thing. It is called iDoc. George's initial collision with this incredible innovation is devastating.

  • "gruesome at times"

    0 of 0 helpful votes

    good book, the story line was not at all what i expected but it kept me intrigued. i wondered though if the medical terminology may cause problems for readers with no medical back ground, but it seemed as though the author tried hard not to let that happen. it was gruesome at times especially the birth scenes but they were a necessary part of the story. i was a bit disappointed in the ending, it felt incomplete to me as far as solving the case was concerned and the finale' with the main characters.
    the narrator was great.

    Forensic archaeologist Ruth Galloway has excavated a body from the grounds of Norwich Castle, a forbidding edifice that was once a prison. She believes the body may be that of infamous Victorian murderess Jemima Green. Called Mother Hook for her claw-like hand, Jemima was hanged in 1867 for the murder of five children in her care. DCI Harry Nelson has no time for long-dead killers. Immersed in the case of three infants found dead, one after the other, in their King’s Lynn home, he’s convinced that a family member is responsible, though others on his team think differently.

For several years it was widely believed that the Countess had spontaneously combusted at her writing desk. Another popular theory was that her husband, Count Görlitz, a Privy Councillor and Chamberlain to the Grand-Duke of Hesse had murdered her - a charge which he vigorously denied.
