    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.

    Story
    Would you try another book from Robin Cook and/or George Guidall?

    I will never read another Robin Cook book about Pia Grazdani. The first Pia book was interesting but one of Cook's weaker novels. This last book was a total waste of time and obviously designed to get you to read his next one. No chance!

    George Guidall is an excellent narrator and I have no complaints about him.


    Has Nano turned you off from other books in this genre?

    Not necessarily.


    Have you listened to any of George Guidall’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    George did well; it was the book itself that was weak.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    It was interesting to learn something about nano technology. That was the only redeeming quality because the story line was non-existent.


    Any additional comments?

    I've read almost every one of Robin Cook's novels. The previous Pia novel, Death Benefit, was the weakest of his books up until this one. The character of Pia is difficult to believe or understand and her boy friend, George, is equally difficult to believe. Nano is obviously leaving the door open to a third Pia novel. I won't consider reading it.

    It appears that Robin Cook is spending all his time researching and writing about interesting new medical technology at the expense of character and plot development. Well, it just won't sell books! Robin, give it up.
