FICTION / Mystery & Detective / General
Robin Cook is an esteemed doctor and a best-selling author. Combining his professional expertise and creative talents, he has crafted more than 20 widely popular medical thrillers. Each is an unforgettable journey into the darkest recesses of hospitals and laboratories. In exchange for a generous fee, Deborah and Joanna have donated eggs at the Wingate Fertility Clinic. Months later, the young women are still curious about what has happened to their eggs, so they disguise their appearances and get jobs at the clinic. But instead of answers, they begin to discover experiments in cloning that are more terrifying than anything they could imagine. Shock focuses on what can happen if scientific research is driven by greed rather than ethics. Resonating with the sharp medical details and nonstop action that have become Cook’s signature, this novel paints a disturbing vision of the future. Narrator C.J. Critt’s performance dramatizes the two women’s growing horror as they explore the bizarre, nightmare world of the Wingate Clinic.
