The book Crisis seems to have a few loose ends: (SPOILER ALERT?) Are we to understand that it was Craig who hired Renaldo and Manuel to terrorize his daughters so as to prevent the autopsy? It was never explained, but there was a tantalizing clue found after the incident, which the detective was "not at liberty" to divulge. I was sure this would be clarified but it wasn't. Did I miss something?

For years i have enjoyed reading Robin Cooks novels, and will continue to read them. Perhaps Dr. Cook is just getting older and his writing style has changed.

I enjoy dr robin cook's books,but this novel was quite dissapoinring! Where are the high speed chases such as in marker? The end,like the last 4 or 5 sentances we're confusing! Was the person that lokked like Craig,craig or not? Please shed some light on this for me!

I am wading through "Intervention". I hadn't read a Robin Cook book for a long time and won't read another in the future. The story has some merit but the characters are dreadful. They are shallow and boring. I suspect he has a teenage daughter that does some of his writing for him.

The dialog is a flat and unnatural as the characters in this novel! I was very disappointed in the ending and not a little confused. I am not uneducated nor did I need a dictionary to help me understand the medical terms or legal jargon. I happen to be a middle school library tech with many hours of reading good literature and (if truth be told) many more hours reading mind candy. This book is regrettably neither!

I don't think it is a lack of education that is keeping people from enjoying Crisis. Just because someone is an MD and well educated, does not make them a good writer. Cook is usually a fairly good writer, but Crisis has a muddled plot with myriad threads left loose and leaving the reader feeling very unsatisfied. The fault lies with the writer, not the readers...and some of us are "medical people" too!

First, I believe you should understand that these books are written by a very well educated individual, so if the words are too big for you get a dictionary, or an education. Sometimes it is a little hard to talk about the grim subjects in DR.Cooks books, and make them fun and enjoyable. As a fellow medical person, I have no problem with Dr.Cooks writting or content.
