The explosive new thriller from New York Times-bestselling author and master of the medical thriller, Robin Cook, takes readers back to where the genre began, and the questions posed in Coma: what happens when innocent hospital patients are used as medical 'incubators' against their will? Lynn Peirce, a fourth-year medical student at Mason-Dixon University, thinks she has her life figured out.
A Labour politician who believed that foreign policy must have an ethical dimension, Robin Cook was Foreign Secretary throughout Tony Blairs first term as Prime Minister, from 1997 to June 2001. In 2003, as Leader of the Commons, he resigned from government in protest against the Iraq war. John Williams, who was Cooks press secretary at the Foreign Office, gives a behind-the-scenes account of a politician whose career illustrates the difficulty of reconciling principles with the compromises of government.
