'Like John Grisham and Patricia Cornwell, the author, a practising doctor from Florida, mines his professional life for clever plots and gruesomely convincing details' (DAILY MAIL).

A seizure has to be one of the most frightening conditions known to the medical profession, and ever since publication of COMA (basis of an outstanding film) Dr Cook has been scaring us with his visionary insight into the most alarming possibilities of his own profession.

Long recognised as the master of medical thrillers, Robin Cook once again combines a fascinating scenario with cutting-edge suspense and the bold strokes of everyday reality.
