2007: #1 – Acceptable Risk (Robin Cook)
Time to kick off 2007!
Book #1 was Acceptable Risk by Robin Cook. Back of the book reads:
A research scientist discovers a mood-altering, enhancing drug and involves himself and other researchers in a deadly experiment. Blended with this story of greed and laboratories gone awry is a woman’s relationship troubles and her increasingly troubled conviction that something has gone wrong.
This book surprised me. I wasn’t feeling very optimistic about it as I neared the climax, but I was pleasantly surprised by how it ended. This book wasn’t 100% medical — there was a nice side-story about the Salem witch trials. I only give it 3 stars because I’ve decided I don’t like how Robin Cook writes women. They always seem to be indecisive and overly-emotional and rather irrational.
