|Plot Summary of Chromosome 6|
|"The book has so much action and suspense that makes it
impossible to tell what really happens on this story.
Be aware only that this is the best book Robin Cook ever
wrote. It makes the reader love the reading, and the
characters are just wonderfully developed. Amazing book!
Marco Aurelio, Resident Scholar
|"This is Dr. Cook's follow-up to Contagion. Jack is back with his friend Warren and they find themselves in quite a mess. Jack's uncanny ability to find trouble is met with his desire to be an ethical doctor. This is a must read for anyone interested in genetics or the human genome project research."
Scott Pickle, Ph.D., Resident Scholar
|"A medical researcher "oversteps the bounds" and creates a species of protohumans. A search for the truth by two medical examiners from New York leads them to Africa, where what they find scares them..."
Patti, Resident Scholar
