i'v jst finished 'MINDBEND'. all that i want to say that it's plot is great...& all the characters quite do justice to their roll given..but actually what i want to say that the ending is pretty much guessable to the readers...that's what when you'v jst ended the book;you might say that oow! this was obvious..& another thing..is it possible that arolen is unaware of the fact that dr. smith is in hospital though adam took the disguise of dr. smith & went straight to the cruise...the main thing i want to ask is how can a person hide his own voice & imitate someone for a long time when it was really a challenge to him to remember even the person's name?? i'd like to have an opinion from the reader's viewpoint...as well as from the author.

why was an autopsy on franconi a possible problem for taylor chabot and gensys?

I have just finished Acceptable Risk. The parallel between Elizabeth and Kim was fascinating.
As I read the epilogue I found myself totally absorbed and filled with empathy for Kim as she "poked into the rubble of the castle." On page 297 I was stunned by an editor's oversight that read as follows:
"They stood for a time gazing at the askes. Finally Kinnard stuffested they move on. Elizabeth nodded." ELIZABETH? Yikes! It should have, of course, read, "Kim nodded." I got chills! Cook's storytelling is so powerful. I read and reread the sentence just to be sure I wasn't mistaken.
Perhaps someone else noticed this. I just had to find a place to tell someone.

In "Toxin" it seems like Dr. Reggis is ready to punch everyone out all the time. Can't he control himself?

I just read Foreign Body; I was HORRIFIED by the ending, suggesting that any nurse who actually planned how & then executed the murder of a patient (and was allowing the murders of others) would be able to turn like a State's witness, avoid any punishment for the crime, and then it's suggested she'd be rewarded by "forgiving & understanding principles" of the story, and aided to further a career in medicine! Boy, have you been away from a real hospital setting for that long? As an RN for over 30 years I am SO disappointed! I have always enjoyed your stories before, but surely not this one.

I would say the subject of the book loosely relates to the life-cycle of a lemon.

I am doing a book report on Cook's Toxin. I am supposed to say how this book relates to biology using specific text examples. Except I can't really find anything like what its asking for. Would any body here know? I would really appreciate it.

I came to this site to look for answers. What I found out, is everyone that read Crisis has the same questions. Read the book in 1 day but was very confused / disappointed by the ending. Why did he do it? Are we supposed to believe in the coincidence of Jack and Craig going to same resort in Cuba? Who tied up the girls and why? If Craig was responsible, why was he hiding in his bedroom near then end when he hit Jack the bat? He would have known there was no real threat.
