Death Benefit (English) (Paperback) Price: Rs. 190

This book by Robin Cook is another medical thriller, and the medical theme explored in this book is stem cell research and organ transplant.


Summary Of The Book

Pia Grazdani is a fourth year medical student. Dr. Tobias Rothman, who is a molecular biologist, picks her to be his research assistant. The research work involves growing whole human organs from stem cells.


Meanwhile, there are others with vested interests who would not like to see this happen, especially a couple of financial whiz-kids who hope to make a good deal of profit out of insurance policies acquired from critically ill patients. Due to the research, when it seems that these patients could have a chance of recovery, trouble crops up.


Dr. Rothman and one of his main research colleagues die suddenly due to an infection. They are believed to have been infected by the strain of Salmonella they were using for purposes of research. Pia, who knows the two researchers, refuses to believe that they would be so careless with lab samples and decides to investigate.


Helped by her friend George Wilson, Pia decides to trace back the events that led to the death of Dr. Rothman and his colleague. Their investigation reveals secrets that place their own lives in danger. Apart from the issue of stem cell research, its potentials, and the ethical aspects of the insurance industry, this book also delves into the darker side of foster care through the story of Pia.

Death Benefits hence makes yet another thrilling medical fiction.

Great story

As always Robin Cook has come up with some innovative story. The story line is superb and is well written. It isn't as fast paced or intriguing as some of his other earlier books. Over all a good read. Will recommend this one :)

Interesting!

Robin Cook has delivered a novel medical thriller. The story line is good and engrossing. Good theme. Only negative is, the ending is abrupt and many questions remain unanswered. On the whole, a good read.

Too abrupt

The book written in various parts made very good reading. Quite fast paced. The biggest problem (that is why my rating is 1 instead of 4 or maybe even 5)is that the ending is too too abrupt. The 400 odd page book is hastily finished in the last 3 pages. Lots of loose ends and many questions still unanswered. Cook should have devoted a few more pages to close all the loops.

A MUST READ! :) I loved it!

Death Benefit by Robin Cook reinstates the widely accepted fact, that Mr. Cook is perhaps one of the best mystery writers in the world of today.
The plot of the novel is thrilling throughout & the characters very likeable. When I brought this book, I had really high hopes of it, and surely it didn't fail to deliver.

The story, is an excellent blend of the seemingly diverse and unconnected worlds of regenerative medicine and life insurance; talks about how two affluent whiz kids, in a bid to defend their affluent business, get involved in a notorious, high profile crime against two very succ

The way Cook makes medical thrillers for non medical readers is simply superb.It is almost scary to think of such parallels in real life. Great service fro Flipkart as always and looking forward to Cook's next one

Death Benefit by Robin Cook

A different plot, not like the normal Robin Cook books which keep me glued to it. Readable - yes. Some may like it but I did not quite enjoy it wholeheartedly. Looking forward to more good books from him.

Very contemporary

Awesome pace, robin cook delivers exactly what is expected of him- medical thriller !! quite fascinating as recent world economic conditions have been roped in seamlessly with biotechnology and some of the instruments described are nothing short of science fiction, yet makes one think-what if its true !! I am happy I read him.
