Publisher's Summary

After a tumultuous year in which her mentor is murdered and her estranged father comes back into her life, 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. She's warned by her boss not to investigate the other work being done at the gigantic facility, nor to ask questions about the source of the seemingly endless capital that funds the institute's research. And when Pia encounters a fellow employee on a corporate jogging path, suffering the effects of a seizure, she soon realizes she may have literally stumbled upon Nano LLC's human guinea pigs. Is the tech giant on the cusp of one of the biggest medical discoveries of the 21st century - a treatment option for millions - or have they already sold out to the highest bidder?

    "You can hear the train coming off the tracks"

    Death Benefit is the first book I had to return that because the audio was horrid, I went and picked it up at the library and listened to it and it was enjoyable.

    Nano sounds like its turning into a train wreck and I'm stopping at 4 hours in character development is just terrible and feels like a rewritten Death Benefit. Reading the descriptions of the other Robin Cook books it sounds like Cell is possibly a third book.

    Would be nice if Audible got the entire Jack Stapleton series which is why I picked up robin Cook, in the meantime I'll just go pick them up at the library and save my credits for something else.

    "A winner"

    Excellent read and entertaining science fiction without being completely unbelievable. I hope there's a sequel in the works!

    "Not happy with the ending."

    I love audible books. The performance was great but the end just ended. I hope there is another book on the way for the characters sake. There has been a lot of character development and now I feel like I know them.

    "great sequel!"
    Where does Nano rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    very high


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Nano?

    It is all good


    Any additional comments?

    this was a great sequel to Death Benefit, taking Pia Grazdani to a new level of her hair brained and very dangerous investigations.

    "NO ENDING"

    It's like Robin Cook just quit the story. I don't think I will read/listen to another Robin Cook novel.

    "This book is a CHEAT"
    What disappointed you about Nano?

    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.


    What was most disappointing about Robin Cook’s story?

    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.


    What does George Guidall bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    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.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Nano?

    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.


    Any additional comments?

    This book is a complete waste of time.

    Story
    "Typically Cook = GOOD!"

    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!

    "Be warned! This book ends in a cliff hanger!"

    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.

    "12 plus hours of listening for what?"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Not sure.


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

    NO


    Any additional comments?

    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.

    "What's up with this new formula?"
    Would you try another book from Robin Cook and/or George Guidall?

    I've read all of Robin Cook's novels and was dissappointed with this product.


    Any additional comments?

    Robin Cook should remain true to his brand and formula. This books departure left me wanting and dissapointed at the end.
