It's Gerald again.

I grabbed Fever off the Step 1 list.  I do remember reading that one and
that I enjoyed it.  I've been wanting to work on an easy one.  I copied down
your comments and will pass the information along when it's accepted.
Shouldn't take me long to read it, or too long to process it if you've
already done as much work on it as I expect.

Book submitted
Fever by Robin Cook to replace the "fair" copy in the collection. is a .rtf
file for validators. has been read, and new synopsies have been added.

Should be an easy validation.  Will probably stay away from these for a few
books, smile.  I have Shock, Blind Sight, and Abduction still to edit.

But we shall see, they are quite addicting.
From the book Jacket:

The man who created technohorror takes a bold leap forward with this
controversial and spellbinding thriller. Combining his own unique brand of
medical terror with a hero and heroine of exceptional sympathy and daring,
Robin Cook delivers in Fever a reading experience as gripping and plausible
as tomorrow's headlines.
When medical catastrophe strikes the family of physician Charles Martel for
the second time, the doctor turned researcher takes it upon himself to save
his daughter Michelle's life, even though he risks becoming an outlaw in his
profession and his community. Trapped by a medical-industrial system
insisting on treatments he knows to be futile, endangered in his own
research by professional rivalries and high-level corporate suppression,
Charles fights to track down the
source of Michelle's disease and then to cure it.
What Charles Martel finds in his quest for a cause and a cure will threaten
every aspect of his life, leading him deeper and deeper toward the heart of
lethal mystery, impelling him to acts of criminal desperation, driving him
apart from his new wife, Cathryn, herself caught between her love for her
husband and what she sees as her responsibility to her stricken
stepdaughter. Charles and Cathryn are two decent people, compelled by love
and crisis into a terrifying confrontation.
Brilliantly conceived, Fever is both a heart-pounding novel of suspense and
a work of serious and vital speculation.

Robin Cook, a graduate of Columbia University medical school and the best-
selling author of Coma and Brain, is currently on leave of absence from his
post at the Massachusetts Eye and Ear Institute. He lives in Waterville
Valley, New Hampshire, with his wife Barbara.
