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.

"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)
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.
The narrator did a very poor job of imitating accents.
Most disappointing is that I have never not enjoyed a Robin Cook novel until now. While this was a potentially great subject, this seemed more like Nancy Drew.
Why ever would I do that?
Not great,but okay. Probably 100% better on paper - so that's a consideration! Just a little too sing-song for me.
