That is the way it ends. But in his next book, Seizure, the girls are referred to and we go to the offshore Wingate Clinic... It is abrupt but there is nothing missing.

The book ends adruptly at page 472 or 474 with the security chief telling the doctors that they would be moving their operations offshore sooner than they planned. Then my Victor reader locks up and I have to do a Alt-Ctrl-Del to get out of it. I don't remember Doctor Cook ending his stories like this and we never find out what happens to the two women. I am wondering if this is another book in which the last few pages are missing? Has anyone else read this book? This topic has come up before and I believe most agree that it is annoying to read a 400 page book and not get the ending. If I am correct about Shock missing the ending then one of the following should be the problem: 1. The original computer file from the OCR program is missing the last few pages. Could the person who scanned this book originally please check this? 2. The program that converts the files to Daisy format is cutting off the ending. 3. The compression program that inserts our name and passwords into the file and compresses it into the .bks format is cutting off the ending. 4. The upload program on Bookshare's end or the download program in my Internet Explorer is chopping off the ending (unlikely since it is now a compressed file.) 5. The unpak program on my computer is lunching the end of the book (if so, why does it only do this on some books and not others?) Or is there some other cause? Could someone at Bookshare please look into this problem. I don't want to be a complainer and I'm willing to help track the problem down if given instructions, but the missing pages at the end is irritating. And I apoligise in advance if page 472 is actually the end of this book.
