The New York Times- bestselling author and master of the medical thriller returns with a top-notch fusion of groundbreaking medical science and edge-of-your-seat suspense. George Wilson, M.D., a radiology resident in Los Angeles, is about to enter a profession on the brink of an enormous paradigm shift, foreshadowing a vastly different role for doctors everywhere. The smartphone is poised to take on a new role in medicine, no longer as a mere medical app but rather as a fully customizable personal physician capable of diagnosing and treating even better than the real thing. It is called iDoc. George' s initial collision with this incredible innovation is devastating. He awakens one morning to find his fiancEe dead in bed alongside him, not long after she participated in an iDoc beta test. Then several of his patients die after undergoing imaging procedures. All of them had been part of the same beta test. Is it possible that iDoc is being subverted by hackers-- and that the U.S. government is involved in a cover-up? Despite threats to both his career and his freedom, George relentlessly seeks the truth, knowing that if he' s right, the consequences could be lethal.

"Narrator George Guidall captures the suspense of this high-tech medical thriller. iDoc, a smartphone app and microchip replacement for primary care doctors, is under medical trials when patients and friends of Dr. George Wilson die unexpectedly. Dr. Wilson and an insider at Amalgamated Health Care, the conglomerate behind the virtual physicians, work to expose iDocÕs role in the untimely deaths. Listeners are propelled through the story with GuidallÕs expert pacing and emphasis as he depicts each plot twist with skill. However, his lackluster treatment of some dialogue segments doesnÕt keep the characters distinct. This weakness aside, CELL is an exciting story, with a matching performance.
