Soliloquies. When Robin Cook talks to himself in his novels, is anyone listening? His latest novel, Intervention, is filled with long explanations of what Cook is trying to convey, and the tedious dialogue to deliver his messages became overwhelmingly frustrating at times. On the positive side, the return of protagonists Jack Stapleton and Laurie Montgomery provided some entertainment. A trip to Rome added to the excitement, since Jack in New York can be more than a little manic. Readers who love medical thrillers may find some reading pleasure here, as will returning fans of Jack and Laurie. Other readers can find much better books to read.
Rating: Two-star (Mildly Recommended)
