George Wilson, M.D., a radiology resident in Los Angeles, is about to enter a profession on the brink of an enormous paradigm shift, foreshadowing a vastly different role for doctors everywhere. The smartphone is poised to take on a new role in medicine, no longer as a mere medical app but rather as a fully customizable personal physician capable of diagnosing and treating even better than the real thing. It is called iDoc. George's initial collision with this incredible innovation is devastating. He awakens one morning to find his fianc©♭e dead in bed alongside him, not long after she participated in an iDoc beta test. Then several of his patients die after undergoing imaging procedures. All of them had been part of the same beta test. Is it possible that iDoc is being subverted by hackers-and that the U.S. government is involved in a cover-up? Despite threats to both his career and his freedom, George relentlessly seeks the truth, knowing that if he's right, the consequences could be lethal.… (mehr)

As usual, once I start a Robin Cook book, I'm utterly hooked and don't want to stop reading until I finish, and then I'm ready for more.

Highly recommended. Relentless.

George Wilson, M.D., a radiology resident in Los Angeles, is about to enter a profession on the brink of an enormous paradigm shift, foreshadowing a vastly different role for doctors everywhere. The smartphone is poised to take on a new role in medicine, no longer as a mere medical app but rather as a fully customizable personal physician capable of diagnosing and treating even better than the real thing. It is called iDoc.

George’s initial collision with this incredible innovation is devastating. He awakens one morning to find his fiancée dead in bed alongside him, not long after she participated in an iDoc beta test. Then several of his patients die after undergoing imaging procedures. All of them had been part of the same beta test.

Is it possible that iDoc is being subverted by hackers—and that the U.S. government is involved in a cover-up? Despite threats to both his career and his freedom, George relentlessly seeks the truth, knowing that if he’s right, the consequences could be lethal.

I want a sequel!

Includes a sneak peek look at Host. ( )

The author had a pretty interesting story going up until the end. With two or three chapters left, I thought there was no way he could wrap the story up in the space he had left, and he didn't. He either got tired of the story, or he couldn't think of a plausible, satisfying ending. ( )

Best spannend verhaal over George Wilson, een assistent radiologie. Verschillende mensen, waaronder zijn verloofde n zijn bevriend buurman doen mee aan een testprogramma van een telefonische app die een revolutie in de gezondheidszorg gaat betekenen. Mensen hebben 24/7 toegang tot een arts, makkelijker tot medicijnen, die via een geïmplanteerd reservoirtje worden toegediend. Helaas oordeelt de app ook over het moment dat de patiënt maar beter kan sterven, door een terminale ziekte of situatie of wanneer de organisatie achter de app vindt dat iemand te duur wordt. George gaat op zoek naar de ware toedracht en uiteraard verliest hij het en wordt ook nog vermoord, of opgesloten in een psychiatrische inrichting. Als ultiem lichtpuntje voorziet hij zijn einde en stuurt de gevonden gegevens aan een oude studievriend.. ( )

I did this for my dear Mom, who has been passed since Dec 2007, but who was a die-hard Robin Cook fan from minute one. EVERY YEAR Mr. Cook came out with a book, Mom was there at Waldenbooks [I know, I know...extinct city and...I am seriously "age-ing" myself here], Barnes & Noble [when it wasn't B&N of online fame] and Borders, etc. etc...picking up the newish Best Seller...IN HARDCOVER!. yeah, she was that much of a fan, from back in ye olde COMA days. Mom was a 31 yr Registered Nurse, who retired in PACU, which [if you don't know] stands for Post Anesthesia Nursing Care.

I loved watching Mom read these because she wasn't often a lover of ALL THINGS MEDICAL. She used to tell me that "Why do I wanna watch this, I work in THAT every damn day!?" and I saw her point. But there was always something special...sort of otherworldly surreal about Mr. Cook's writing that spoke to her, made her devour his books in a single day, or two. She'd finish and gush, somehow awash herself in the manner the story was told in a reality she envisioned daily. She didn't think Mr. Cook was too far off the real honest truth. There is an authenticity here she couldn't pass on...and now I see why she fed off these novels every publication year. Thanks, Mr. Cook...for showing me a minor way back to memories of my Mom. It brought me a weird joy despite the pure terror at every turn of the page.

Okay...this book effing scared me to bits. Not because everything Mr. Cook writes borders on such stunning realism, but because not too long ago...I was "caught" in the medical system that would consistently give me the literal shivers. It reminded me of how close I came to being sucked into The Void of not just terrible insurance but of the visceral trap sick customers can get stuffed into and without those random people who DO care who work for the conglomerated insurance companies...would rather watch the ill or sick get sicker draining more money into their pockets out of innocent folks like me. And thank God I had a hyper-aware family member who WANTED me to get better and see me back home...no matter what means necessary to get me there.

I wouldn't have read this book IN THERE...the hospital or the rehab/nursing home care facility I was sent to prior to coming home nearly 2.5yrs later. I would not have read this because I think...even around the time this book came out 2013-1014...we were close to such things as iDoc and implanted medical devices existing in this very scenario. It just hits too close to what can happen to the sick or terminally ill who DO NOT have the family members or a legal guardian who DOES care about them and wants what is best. Letting folks fester where they don't belong is never the answer because some of those so-called helpful places can sometimes manifest a sense of "this is the end"...or worse, "This is where I die"...patients can be found to not just become physically sicker but mentally and emotionally sink deeper into a blacker nothingness.

It's scary...and Mr. Cook comes so close...in each of those individual characters/patients who were part of the beta testing of iDoc depicting that restless energy...that instant loss of autonomy...the way insurances and people who don't know what it's remotely like take for granted for the all-mighty dollar...to feel stripped of everything that makes us human and humane. To eventually give yourself up to the inevitable Death knocking at your door because there is no fathomable way to stop it...poor, poor Sal tried and he seriously had the worst outcome of the five deaths connected to George. Jesus...on...a...cross...

I have to say, with any other book, the ending would have upset me, but not here. I want to imagine my own outcome. I like the ending we were given because endings don't always have to be happy or final. Sometimes we simply have to let them be...
