I have to second all reviews so far. If there is not a free part 2 to this, I'll never buy, or read another Robin Cook novel. He cheated readers out of any conclusion-an English teacher would give this work an F.
The book just ends, everything is hanging. George is wandering around London, her father leaves the house where he thinks she is being kept-to find nothing, and the bad guy gets on his plane to go home thinking all is well. I could have just stopped anywhere in the book, and gotten just as much out of it.
George Guidall is an excellent narrator, up to this point I might have tried anything he was narrating. I have no problem with the performance.
I wouldn't have cut anything, I would have finished the book. Next time I will definitely read the reviews before spending my money on this.
This book is a complete waste of time.

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!
I pretty much enjoyed this story but was quite disappointed when it ended with many loose ends and no conclusion. As a stand alone story it wobbles badly.
I was enjoying the plot of this book, but obviously Robin Cook couldn't think of a good ending so he just stopped the story.
I've read all of Robin Cook's novels and was dissappointed with this product.
Robin Cook should remain true to his brand and formula. This books departure left me wanting and dissapointed at the end.
Not wasting time giving constant time. date, place updates. implausible story line.Book has no ending. It just stops and goes to short epilog.
Would have given it a "0" if it was a choice.
I don't think anyone wants a book without an ending!
I always enjoy him.
A good story, a bit slow in places, but good concept.
I should have paid attention to the reviews. I have never been so let down by a book. I even cued back to see if I missed the ending somehow, but no, there simply is no ending. If you want to avoid frustration, DO NOT order this book.
This is the first book by Robin Cook I thought was boring and not worth the money. They characters are flat no emotions and you just are trying to find someone to care about. The book just ends. Terrible listening you were glad when it was over.
Love to read and listen to books
The ending was terrible. It was like the author tired of the story and didnt finish it leaving George and Pia's father just hanging. It is like the author was just transitiioning to a sequel.
kids, people working on bio-science, physicians, hospital workers, anyone associated with the future science of disease
villain gets away with it
it was ok, nothing outstanding
i still like Robin cook
