    Overall
    Performance
    Story

    I think this may be one of my favourite Robin Cook Books, although I can’t be entirely sure because I honestly don’t know which ones I may have read in the 90s!

    The intrigue in this one kept me enthralled throughout the story – it was a great mystery! If there are too many characters or story lines in a novel, I find it hard to follow because my mind wanders a lot. I need a story that sticks to the point and this one does.

    I’m looking forward to the next book starring the same protagonists “Cell” however I don’t think I’ll bother with the preceding one “Death Benefit”. There was so much exposition in this book that now I feel as though I’ve already read it! (Had I actually read it I would have appreciated the reminders, but now I feel like it’s pointless.)

    Overall: a fun ride!

    Pia Grazdani, the embattled medical student from Death Benefit, decides to take a year off from her medical studies and escape New York City. Intrigued by the promise of the burgeoning field of medical technology and the chance to clear her head, Pia takes a job at Nano, LLC, a lavishly funded, security-conscious nanotechnology insititute in the picturesque foothills of the Rockies. Nano, LLC is ahead of the curve in the competitive world of molecular manufacturing, including the construction of microbivores, tiny nano-robots with the ability to gobble up viruses and bacteria. But the corporate campus is a place of secrets.

  • Secret Thoughts: A Medical Thriller

    "Steady upward climb--brilliant thriller!"

    Overall
    Performance
    Story

    I think that it’s a gift for any writer to utilize technical knowledge into a gripping narrative that appeals to everyman. H.S. Clark succeeded in that respect in his book, Secret Thoughts: A Medical Thriller. Einstein supposedly said that if you can’t explain something simply, then you don’t know it well enough. Not only did H.S. Clark paint a very clear picture of the medical world and in a manner that even someone with no background knowledge about it will understand what he wants to communicate. He also managed to create a brilliant story line—an exciting plot that zooms off into action from the moment you start reading.

    As a fan of medical thriller, there are certain elements that I look for to get my attention. One is the sense of authenticity. There are so many novels that deal with topics that are clearly out of the author’s range of expertise, and sometimes, no matter how much they try to make the story sound accurate, there is still something amiss. With Secret Thoughts, Clark clearly knows what he’s doing—being an anesthesiologist himself—and just how much to use to fuel the story.

    Other elements I look for in a medical thriller are heartbreak and betrayal. Yes, it can’t be an effective thriller without it breaking your heart first into a million tiny pieces before the redemption in the end. And I remember telling myself when I started reading the prologue, “I swear, if Kayla dies, I will flip.” But of course, the child dies, because how else do you start a thriller apart from introducing a mother-child fiasco that ends with the little daughter convulsing and literally dropping dead before her mother’s eyes?

    On the one hand, the novel is fast-paced despite its heavy medical jargon. What’s even more wonderfully surprising is the ease with which you follow the story from page to page. On the other hand, although is brilliantly written, it really does leave me thinking how great this will be as a movie.

    When the phone rings in the middle of the night, child psychologist Alex Delaware does not hesitate. Driving through the dream-lit San Fernando Valley, Alex rushes to Jamey Cadmus, the patient he had failed five years before - and who now calls with a bizarre cry for help. But by the time Alex reaches Canyon Oaks Psychiatric Hospital, Jamey is gone, surfacing a day later in the hands of the police, who believe Jamey is the infamous Lavender Slasher, a psychotic serial killer. Wooed by a high-powered attorney to build a defense, Alex will get a chance to do what he couldn't five years ago.

    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.
