Review of Robin Cook’s Critical


When I first opened this book, I wasn’t sure I’d like it. There was a fifteen-page prologue to slog through. I cringed, because I’d never seen one so long. But once I got through it, I had enough back story to understand what was to come. And really, it wasn’t so bad.

Angela Dawson, M.D. founder of start-up, Angels Healthcare, holds controlling interest in three New York City specialty hospitals. After living through a troubled childhood, a painful divorce and bankruptcy, Angela now feels comfortable with her life. Until patients at her three hospitals begin dying of drug-resistant staph infections. These deaths cause a serious cash-flow problem, along with doubts she begins to have about her investors. Vowing to keep her business afloat, Angela puts all she has into saving what she’s built.

New York City medical examiners Laurie Montgomery and Jack Stapleton are curious about these staph-related post-procedure deaths at the three hospitals. There is a personal stake, as well: they are newly married, and Jack is facing reparatory surgery at one of the hospitals. Laurie won’t give up investigating, despite Jack’s protests, and as she comes closer and closer to the truth, not only is her livelihood threatened, but also her and Jack’s lives.

This book moves so quickly I didn’t realize when I was approaching the end. I was sorry to see that happen, but that’s a good thing. If you invest in Critical, you won’t regret it.
