Featured Author of the Week

This month we are featuring Robin Cook. Cook is an American physician and novelist who writes about medicine and topics affecting public health. He is best known for combining medical writing with the thriller genre. Many of his books have been bestsellers on The New York Times Best Seller List. Several of his books have also been featured in Reader's Digest. His books have sold nearly four hundred million copies worldwide. Cook’s novels combine medical facts with fantasy. His medical thrillers are designed, in part, to keep the public aware of both the technological possibilities of modern medicine and the ensuing socio-ethical problems which come along with it. In Cook’s latest novel, Manner of Death, two fan favorites, Dr. Jack Stapleton and his wife, medical examiner Laurie Montgomery, are inadvertently drawn into a dangerous vortex of a series of homicides that have been cleverly staged as suicides.
