    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.

    Any additional comments?

    Don't get me wrong, I really like Robin Cook, but I can't imagin how this got published (I know $$$). The theme was intended to be exciting, fast paced and all that, but it really fell flat. I feel that the actual story could have been told in about 30 minutes without all the fluff knitted in the mix. I will continue reading Cook, but I think before I waste any credits, I will wait for some reader reviews to come in.
    The story starts out slow and boring, so I kept "reading", waiting for all the action and suspence to grab me and put me in the mix as only a fine author like Cook can do. Unfortunately, it just never happened.
    Bottom line, unless you have a heart condition and can not take a lot of excitement, or maybe you have a hard time getting to sleep at nights, you could spend your hard earned credits on bigger and better reads.

  • Jolie Blon's Bounce

    • UNABRIDGED (14 hrs and 23 mins)
    • By James Lee Burke

    Return to James Lee Burke's "timeless, parallel universe" with detective Dave Robicheaux, as he investigates the murders of two women, tries to prove one man's innocence, and faces an enemy unlike any he has ever known. Gothic, dense, brutal, touching, and always compelling, Jolie Blon's Bounce is classic storytelling from a writer who has been dubbed "the Faulkner of crime fiction."

    JD. says: "Sorry I was wrong"
    "Well Done Mr. Burke"
    Overall

    This is my 5th reading of this excellent work, and not my last. Mr. Burke has a very great gift of placing the reader "in" the story. You can almost see, hear and taste everything he describes - and without the Stephen Kingish long winded details. And what a great narrator, Mark Hammer. I think he nails the box shut with his charactors. All around, you will love this book and I am sure it will quickly become one of your favorites.
