With Brain, Robin Cook returns to the world of medical horror that he literally created in Coma.  Now he has exceeded even his own previous achievement with a thriller of serpentine suspense and truly chilling speculation.

A young girl arrives at Hobson University Medical Center to obtain her medical records and is never seen again . . . .

Inexplicably, another young woman dies a horrible and agonizing death during brain surgery while under local anesthesia . . . .

Hidden in a drawer deep in the hospital morgue lies a female cadaver whose organs are in tact, but whose brain is missing . . . .

When Assistant Chief of Neuroradiology Martin Philips and Denise Sanger, the beautiful young resident who is his lover, find themselves thwarted in their research by these bizarre events, their inquiries are dismissed surprisingly lightly by the hospital authorities.  And when they persist in their investigation, they are sucked into a maelstrom with a secret that is far more awesome in scope than their wildest paranoid fantasies.  It is a secret that will turn Martin Philips into a fugitive, and Denise into the helpless captive of a conspiracy that wants much more from her than her life.

From the dark, demonic terror of Coma, Robin Cook moves into the gleaming nightmare universe of techno-horror and science gone mad.

The result is Brain, a new kind of thriller and natural bestseller, which hundreds of thousands of men and women will be unable to put it down.
