This is another new bestselling medical-mystery novel of Dr. Robin Cook. Reality & clarity are the characters of his writing. We found both the things in this novel.
An underworld don Carlo Frankony killed in shootout. Someone stole his dead-body before post-mortem and police department confused by this. But one man, Dr. Jack Stepleton really eager to now how this happened.
After some days another dead-body found near a beach. But this time the identification is not easy job. Because that dead-body missing few things, i.e. one head, a pair of hands & a pair of legs. One more thing was missing & that was his heart.
But very soon Dr. Jack clears the things that the unidentified dead-body was of Carlo Frankony’s. But this was not enough. Who killed the Frankony was still an unanswerable question. They (Dr. Jack & his friends) followed the mystery and went to Africa’s forest, Congo. There they found that some people working on a mystic project which is far beyond of traditional technology of medical science and surgery (and also far long of moral human values.) which is that project? And who is the victim of that? Better is to read the book for the answers.
One more thing is the possibilities described in this novel will become reality in forthcoming days & this is shocking. A typical Robin Cook writing makes the novel attractive. He is much competent to fascinate the readers.
