作者:Michael Palmer.

Dr. Eric Najarian. He's young, talented, and ambitious. He has all the qualities they're looking for at White Memorial Hospital. He doesn't know he's being watched. Judged. An elite clique of medical professionals thinks he has what it takes to join their secret club. All the young doctor has to do is agree to play by their rules.

But Eric has already seen too much. A missing corpse. An unspeakable mutilation. A brutal abduction. It's only the beginning of a plot of terrifying evil. A sinister plan the group will stop at nothing to hide. And if Eric refuses to become their colleague--he will be their next victim.

作者:Tess Gerritsen

如果當時我認識你,如果當時我看著你躺在床上奄奄一息,而喬許.奧戴就躺在另外一張床上,那麼,你們兩個人,我會選擇救哪一個呢?我不知道。

多年來,十一歲的耶可夫一直在莫斯科街頭流浪。他有一頭燦爛的金髮,湛藍的雙眼散發出一種超乎年齡的睿智神采。那些奇怪的叔叔都迷戀他稚嫩的臉蛋,好像都不在乎他少了一條左手臂。他希望自己快點長大,因為長大了就可以不用再受這種蹂躪,就可以跟那幾個同樣無家可歸的大孩子一樣,靠神不知鬼不覺的扒竊技藝謀生。對未來,他的期待也只有這麼多了。

有一天,一對美國來的年輕男女看上了耶可夫。他們說,他們到俄國來,是為了尋找像他一樣健康聰明的孩子,帶回美國送給好人家收養。就在莫斯科西邊九百公里,拉脫維亞的里加港,有一艘老舊的貨輪已經生火待發。就在那片茫茫未知的大海彼岸,美國,幸福夢幻的國度,美好光明的前途......

波士頓的貝賽醫院有全美國最頂尖的心臟移植小組。艾貝是一位靠貸款苦讀出身的年輕醫師。對她來說,不可思議的美好前途突然降臨了,因為,才擔任兩年住院醫師的她即將成為心臟移植小組的新成員,再過幾天,她即將參與第一次移植任務......器官等候名單上第一順位的原本是一個十七歲的年輕人,沒想到,醫院卻臨時下令將心臟移植給一位大富豪的夫人。在良知的驅使下,艾貝違抗院方的命令,擅自將年輕人轉送他院,並奪回了那顆心臟......

沒多久,移植小組的核心成員亞倫醫師卻離奇自殺了。有人在閒置的醫院頂樓發現他的屍體,被自己的皮帶吊死在衣櫃的掛勾上......

《Marker》

作者:Robin Cook

Cook's twenty-fifth medical thriller revisits medical examiners Jack Stapleton and Laurie Montgomery, whose romantic relationship has hit a major bump. Approaching her forty-third birthday, Laurie wants a family and has grown impatient with Jack's reluctance to commit. She walks out on Jack, but she can't avoid him at work. She soon finds herself absorbed in a puzzling case: 28-year-old Sean McGillan has landed on her table, and she can't determine what killed him. Sean had just undergone routine knee surgery, but she can't find any reason why he went into cardiac arrest in his hospital bed. When another young, seemingly healthy patient dies, she suspects foul play. She finds an ally in Dr. Roger Rosseau, the chief of the medical staff at Manhattan General, who takes a personal interest in Laurie, who has medical problems of her own: she might be carrying the genetic marker for breast cancer. When the death toll at Manhattan General increases, Laurie and Jack are consumed with the mystery even as their continued involvement in the investigation places them in peril. Fans of Cook's previous thrillers will be happy to see the return of two popular characters.

《Silent treatment》

clip_image002

 

作者:Michael Palmer

Dr. Harry Corbett is one of a dying breed in the medical community: a general practitioner (and decorated Vietnam vet) fighting for his professional life in a world of flashy specialists. Soon ...更多 enough, however, his battle to stay alive takes a literal turn when he crosses paths with Anton Perchek, a hired syringe whose specialty is interrogation for the highest bidder. Following his wife Evie's suspicious death, Harry learns that the woman he had been disappointingly married to was leading a shadow existence as an investigative writer. While researching a book about escort services, she inadvertently stumbled across a health-insurance conspiracy known as the Roundtable, whose members sent Perchek to eliminate her (in between murdering big-ticket insurance-policy claimants). Appalled, Harry receives little sympathy as a new widower: He's promptly accused of murder by a rival physician who had been having an affair with Evie. The only person who can clear Harry's name -- by proving that Perchek visited Evie's hospital room the night before she was scheduled to undergo brain surgery -- is Maura Hughes, an alcoholic whose recollection of events is clouded by the DTs. Gradually,….劇情至此想知道結局,請至圖書館預約唷!

《Foreign Body》

clip_image002

 

作者:Robin Cook

Bestseller Cook (Critical) stumbles in this formulaic thriller about the timely subject of medical tourism, the trend in which U.S. citizens seek to save costs on expensive surgery through treatment overseas. At the center of the drama is Jennifer Hernandez, a fourth-year medical student at UCLA, whose grandmother has died in a New Delhi hospital following hip replacement surgery. Suspicious about the circumstances, Hernandez immediately flies to India to investigate. There she not only discovers a number of similar deaths of U.S. citizens but also runs into the one-two punch of a desperate Indian medical industry struggling to block all publicity about the deaths and a huge American HMO that wants nothing more than the widest exposure of the apparent medical missteps in the Third World. Implausible plot twists, unconvincing villains, silly dialogue and a convenient, all-too-happy ending make this one of Cook's rare weak efforts.

《Critical judgment》

clip_image001

 

作者:Michael Palmer

Abby Dolan, a young, hot-shot emergency room physician, has left the big city environs of San Francisco to follow her fiance to a small town where he has taken a job with Colstar?the main source of the town's economy. In her work, Abby quickly comes across several patients with vague but troubling symptoms that she believes are caused by environmental poisoning and may be linked to Colstar. Palmer's success in the more gripping Silent Treatment (LJ 2/15/95) is not equaled here. Slow pacing, an awkward writing style, and an uninteresting and unbelievable plot make for a dull medical thriller. Still, Palmer's works are popular, and this novel will no doubt receive a lot of hype.?Patricia Altner, Information Seekers, Bowie, Md.

《State of fear : a novel 》

clip_image001

 

作者:Michael Crichton 

「彼得,每一個獨立主權的國家如果要控制人民的行為,使他們安分守己、溫馴聽話,使他們開車靠右、乖乖繳稅,最好的方式就是恐懼。……儘管某個特定的恐懼原因改變了,我們依然離不開恐懼的糾纏。恐懼滲透到我們社會的每一個角落、生活的每一個層面。我們自以為住在不同的國家──法國、德國、日本、美國──其實我們都生活在同一個國家:恐懼國。」

這本書是克萊頓範圍最廣的懸疑小說,《恐懼之邦》將讀者從冰島的冰原帶到南極的火山,從亞利桑那的沙漠帶到所羅門群島的熱帶叢林,從巴黎的街上到洛杉磯的海灘。這本小說好像帶著你坐摩天輪,高潮迭起,使你的大腦一直在換更高的檔。它使你透不過氣來,同時卻使你深思。
