Publisher's Summary

Two graduate students decide to solve their financial problems by becoming egg donors at an exclusive, highly profitable fertility clinic on Boston's North Shore. But second thoughts and curiosity prompt the two women to find out more about their donated eggs. Obtaining employment at the clinic under aliases, they soon discover the horrifying aims of its research, immediately putting their lives, and their sanity, irrevocably at risk.

Posited on up-to-the-minute science, Shock is a spine-tingling novel of medicine run amok by the best-selling master of medical suspense.

What the Critics Say

"As Burton provides a skillful narration, with on-target age and gender changes, the listener is drawn into the complex plot. The story is exceptionally well done." (AudioFile)

    "yawn"

    This had a good plot line, but was terrible to try and follow. There were just too many key pieces that weren't in place. I kept wanting it to be over with. This is the first I've read/heard from this author and hope that maybe it's just the book and that there are others more interesting.

    "Okay Robin Cook book"

    Not great,but okay. Probably 100% better on paper - so that's a consideration! Just a little too sing-song for me.

    "Think Twice"

    A very good book. I found it very engaging. It may be a little far fetched, but when it comes to Robin Cook all things are possible in the medical field.
