New York Times best-selling author Robin Cook enjoys a well-earned reputation as the master of the medical thriller. Cure presents medical examiner Laurie Montgomery with the case of her life. Having just returned to work after her son's illness, Laurie investigates the mysterious death of a CIA agent. Toxicology fails to corroborate her theory that the agent was poisoned, but after a little digging, Laurie and husband Jack Stapleton find that there are biomed companies that will stop at nothing to prevent further snooping.

"Robin Cook's thriller focuses on global corporate espionage in the field of medical research. Its most valuable asset is a cultured reading by George Guidall. Treating each character as an individual, he puts careful stress on single syllables, allowing his accents to vary and remain dignified while never descending into stereotype. Much of the book deals with the Yakuza (organized crime--Japanese style), and Guidall frequently delivers the narration in a rhythm that suggests Japanese intonation. His delivery of dialogue, regardless of nationality, is highly animated, and, fortunately, there's quite a lot of it. An overabundance of medical details often interferes with the story, so Guidall's voice brings welcome humanity to the numerous characters and credibility to the many action scenes. A.Z.W.
