Author Bio

A best-selling author of medical thrillers, Robin Cook graduated from both the Columbia University Medical School and Harvard University, and has worked in prestigious hospitals including the Massachusetts Eye and Ear Infirmary. His interests range from real estate to basketball, skiing and tennis.

He married his wife, actress Barbara Ellen Mougin, on July 18, 1979.

Praise

New York Times
"Can an intelligent reader possibly believe all this stress and turmoil?...Dr. Cook ... has the storytelling skill to seduce us away from intelligence....By the time 'Fever' began to deteriorate into absolute absurdity, I was having too good a time to be willing to notice." - Christopher Lehmann-Haupt

Washington Post
"...the horrible revelations about the medical establishment ...are the real payoff for reading his books...What makes you start reading Cook is the expectation of horror and a glimpse behind the scenes at the medical establishment. Cook discovered some time ago that for the average person an active, well-lit modern hospital is infinitely spookier than a dark old abandoned house...it will be hard for all but the most dedicated literary purist to put [this novel] down once they have begun." - Joseph McLellan
