Coma is the breakthrough novel from author and master of the medical thriller Robin Cook.
It began with two patients undergoing routine 'minor surgery' in Boston's greatest hospital but Nancy Greenly, Sean Berman and a dozen others – all admitted to Boston Memorial Hospital for routine procedures – were victims of the same inexplicable, hideous tragedy on the operating table.
They never regained consciousness.
Up against the scorn of the medics and the hostility of the establishment, one girl medical student starts to probe the coma cases, steadily uncovering something unbelievably hideous . . .
