In Night Shift, an exhilarating medical mystery-thriller by Robin Cook, fan favorites Jack and Laurie are lured into the dark underbelly of hospital dangers when a doctor is murdered.

Doctors Jack Stapleton and Laurie Montgomery are married and both work in the fast-paced metropolis of New York City. Juggling hectic schedules and family pressures, the last thing they need on their plates is a murder . . .

But when Laurie’s long-time friend Dr Sue Passero dies mysteriously in a hospital parking garage, an autopsy is required, which falls squarely under Laurie’s remit as newly-appointed chief medical examiner. So when Laurie asks Jack to take special care with the examination, he can hardly refuse.

Sensing foul play around Sue’s death having looked into the case more closely, Jack sets out to investigate on-site at Manhattan Memorial Hospital, even though it means defying the Office of Chief Medical Examiner’s rules. And what started out as an inquiry into Sue’s tragic passing soon turns into a deadly game of cat and mouse between Jack and a deranged killer who is ready to strike again . . .
