I haven’t read any of Robin Cook’s books in quite a while and I am sorry I picked this one up. I loved [b:Coma|85437|Coma|Robin Cook|http://d202m5krfqbpi5.cloudfront.net/books/1309286934s/85437.jpg|944350], [b:Outbreak|259538|Outbreak (Dr. Marissa Blumenthal, #1)|Robin Cook|http://d202m5krfqbpi5.cloudfront.net/books/1344166275s/259538.jpg|1176781], [b:Acceptable Risk|259523|Acceptable Risk|Robin Cook|http://d202m5krfqbpi5.cloudfront.net/books/1347976411s/259523.jpg|1970523] – I could go on but Nano was not his usual fare. While reading, although I don’t believe it is a series, I discovered the heroine, Pia was also in a previous novel. In this novel, [b:Death Benefit|10813117|Death Benefit|Robin Cook|http://d202m5krfqbpi5.cloudfront.net/books/1303675835s/10813117.jpg|15726721], Pia was kidnapped and I am sorry to say that I guess the ransom was paid because here she is again. I found her a very unlikable character. She is, of course exceedingly beautiful, athletic, and brilliant. Did I mention beautiful, so beautiful that every man that sees her has to have her. She gets kidnapped again and I skipped to the end hoping that she wouldn't get rescued. I closed the book and I don’t think I will reach for one of Robin Cook’s books for a long, long time, if ever. My advice is to skip this one but if you want to read about nano technology give Michael Crichton’s, [b:Prey|83763|Prey|Michael Crichton|http://d202m5krfqbpi5.cloudfront.net/books/1298436337s/83763.jpg|1258566], a try - that was a fun, entertaining read.
