Product Description

Forensic pathologists and doctors-turned-detectives do battle against epidemics, lethal illness and drug-related deaths, the causes of which are far from natural . . . You’ll find yourself completely hookedLikeable heroes, a compelling medical mystery and growing suspense – the result is a highly entertaining read. Commercial fiction, at its best, is pure entertainment. But Cook, like Michael Crichton, offers readers a smart dissection of contemporary issues that affect us allRobin Cook virtually invented the medical thriller in the 1970s with ComaGripping . . . TerrifyingA medical mystery thriller from the master of the genre, Robin Cook.

New York Times bestselling author Robin Cook takes on the ripped-from-the-headlines topic of using DNA tracking to catch a killer in Genesis, an unforgettable medical thriller.

When the body of social worker Kera Jacobsen shows up on Chief Medical Examiner Laurie Montgomery’s autopsy table, it appears at first that she was the victim of a tragic drug overdose. But for Laurie and her new pathology resident, the brilliant but outspoken Dr. Aria Nichols, further investigation reveals an alarming discovery. The young woman was ten weeks pregnant when she died, but nobody seems to know who the father was – or whether he holds the key to Kera’s final moments alive.

While Laurie faces a personal crisis with the support of her husband, forensic pathologist Jack Stapleton, the impulsive Aria investigates a controversial new technique to progress the case: using DNA databases to track down those who don’t want to be found. Working with experts at a genealogy website based in New York, she plans to trace the foetus’s DNA in the hopes of identifying the mystery father.

After Kera’s closest friend is found murdered days later, the need for answers becomes critical. Because someone out
there clearly doesn’t want Kera’s secrets to come to light . . . and if Aria gets any closer to the truth, she and Laurie face becoming targets for a ruthless killer.

Doctor and author Robin Cook is widely credited with introducing the word ‘medical’ to the thriller genre and, decades after the publication of his 1977 breakthrough novel, Coma, he continues to dominate the category he created. Robin Cook has successfully combined medical fact with fiction to produce more than thirty international bestsellers, including Outbreak, Terminal and Contagion.Robin Cook’s bestselling series of medical thriller novels feature pathologists Jack Stapleton and Laurie Montgomery as they attempt to solve mysteries that cross their paths in New York City. The darker side of scientific advancement is at the core of this gripping series which begins with Blindsight. Robin Cook has been described by the New York Times as ‘the master of the medical thriller’.
