Crisis by Robin Cook
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Dr. Craig Bowman was served with a malpractice lawsuit for making a house call on one of his patients in his concierge medical practice. The lawsuit charges that he should have called an ambulance instead of going to the patient’s home. Dr. Bowman has spent his whole life as an overachiever and especially in his medical practice. A workaholic, he sacrificed his marriage and relationship with his children to his patients and he is bewildered at the charges.
His brother-in-law, medical examiner, Dr. Jack Stapleton, has come to the aid of his sister’s husband on the eve of his wedding to see what he can uncover. This novel has several twists and subplots and the reader is carried away with the rush to find an answer before Jack is due at the altar. Will he make it, or is this another subliminal attempt to avoid the commitment of marriage?
The book did have some problems and some stereotyping. Many of the characters were one dimensional and overly simplified. I found the conclusion to be a little disappointing, but there was a lot of action and suspense. This isn’t Robin Cook’s best, but is still a good read.
