Synopsis

A heart-stopping tale of medicine gone mad and the abuse of power, Godplayer is a medical thriller from the master of the genre – Robin Cook.

The first moment pathology resident Cassandra Cassidy met brilliant cardiac surgeon Thomas Kingsley, she knew they were meant to be together. Forced by a deteriorating eye condition to switch from her chosen field to psychiatry, Cassandra needs the support that the charismatic doctor so passionately offers.

But while Thomas continues his meteoric rise, what should have been fairytale happiness begins to disintegrate as the solidity of their marriage begins to crumble. And the dependable security of the hospital world around her seems equally menaced: Cassandra is convinced that someone is killing terminal patients – someone who holds the power of life and death in their hands.

Against her husband’s furious objections, Cassandra takes it upon herself to stop the killings even as she fights to save her marriage. Little does she know that her search for the truth will open the floodgates of an unimaginable horror . . .

The master of the medical thriller.
