A vast improvement compared to the prior book in the series.

This time around Laurie & Jack are up against an organised crime conspiracy attempting to corner the patents on a specific type of stem cell therapy.

Starts off a little slow but builds nicely and has a decent ending. ( )

I liked this book as much as all the books by Robin Cook. It's a part of the series involving Laurie Montgomery and her husband Jack Stapleton, both Medical Examiners. The book was intense and moving; the only negative being that Montgomery plays too big a role.
The story as always talks waxes eloquent with even 'family' members like Louie saying "in this business sometimes you need to use violence to keep the peace." Laurie as always, bemoans the marriage of medicine and business. ( )

Very mediocre. Same characters involved in a stupid, international crime plot, along with done again outstanding lab work, and yadayada. Title has precious little to do with wacky plot. A real disappointment. ( )

In Cure, the plot centers on stem cells and the highly profitable potential of such discoveries. I loved the other Laurie Montgomery and Jack Stapleton books but this one was a bit convoluted and overly complex. Cook tried to fit too much into a medical mystery book (did not need a 3 page list of characters). None of the characters were very well developed. ( )

In Cure, the plot centers on the current medical topic of stem cells, the theory that they may cure every know ailment, and the highly profitable potential of such discoveries. After a mid-life crisis, in the name of greed, a doctor attempts to corner the market on promising research. Due to a lack of capital, he uses New York based mob connections to fund his new company, there by setting himself up for disaster. Through those mob connections, he has a Japanese man, Satoshi Machita, and his family moved to New York, while personally stealing Satoshi’s research from a Japanese University and abetting in the murder of a guard. After Satoshi and his family are murdered, ME Laurie Montgomery, a key player in Cook’s other novels, begins the investigation initiating problems with the New York mob.

Though I have read and enjoyed other Robin Cook novels, I enjoyed only a small portion of this one. The list of characters is several pages long, and includes several names in Japanese that prove difficult to recall. Cook includes many pages of the activities of both the New York and Japanese mobs that are expendable, and a rant about the necessity of government to control medicine to prevent corruption in the medical arena. Between the expendable mob pages and the rant, the few pages of decent story were not worth the time necessary to read the rest. ( )
