Just when you thought it was safe to eat a hamburger again, Robin Cook – master of medical mysteries, deadly epidemics, and creepy comas – returns with an all too likely villain drawn right from current headlines: the American meat industry.

If you've ever wondered where the E. coli bacteria comes from, and exactly how it can ravage the human body, destroying everything in its path, this is the book for you. As usual, in Toxin, Cook delivers solid information, well-researched medical arcana, and a scathing indictment of managed health care.

The master of the medical thriller.
