Legend of Parzival

Legend of Parzival

Author: Robin Cook Format: eBook Release Date: 17/05/2018

Enter the extraordinary world of Arthurian legend in an adventure overflowing with knightly chivalry, the danger of jousting and the warmth of true love. But the Legend of Parzival is more than the tale of one knight's epic journey to find the elusive Holy Grail; along the way Parzival faces a challenging journey of self-discovery. He must conquer his ignorance and pride, and learn humility and compassion before he is finally worthy of becoming a Grail Knight. This accessible prose retelling of the medieval German epic brings the wonderful story of the Arthurian knight (known variously as Parzival, Parsifal and Percival) to life for today's readers, while faithfully preserving the story, characters and tone of Wolfram von Eschenbach's thirteenth century narrative poem. In Steiner-Waldorf education, Parzival's quest is seen as a metaphor for the difficult journey through life, which speaks strongly to the adolescent, and its study is at the heart of the Class 11 curriculum. As a hugely experienced Steiner-Waldorf teacher, Robin Cook's engaging retelling will provide valuable inspiration for other teachers and students, as well as enjoyment and enrichment for all readers.

George Wilson, M.D., a radiology resident in Los Angeles, is about to enter a profession on the brink of an enormous paradigm shift, foreshadowing a vastly different role for doctors everywhere.

Vital Signs

Vital Signs

Author: Robin Cook Format: eBook Release Date: 11/09/2014

Where life begins, terror lurks... Only Robin Cook, acknowledged master of the techno-medical thriller, could have written this supremely chilling novel about the passion to create life-and the power to destroy it. Millions of readers met crusading epidemiologist Marissa Blumenthal in the pages of the bestselling Outbreak. Now Robin Cook brings back his feisty heroine in a gripping new tale, Vital Signs-a roller-coaster ride into the unexpected and the utterly unconscionable. In the eyes of her envious peers, Marissa has it all: a superb professional reputation, a flourishing pediatrics practice, even a fairy-tale marriage with the man of her dreams-Robert Buchanan, an entrepreneur involved in health-care administration and research. But there is one thing Marissa does not have: the child she desperately desires. And when tests confirm that her sealed fallopian tubes have rendered her infertile, her perfect world begins to crumble. Obsessed with becoming pregnant, Marissa barely even notices the disastrous effect her idee fixe is having on her marriage and career. When a little medical sleuthing points to suspicious origins of her infertility, Marissa boldly challenges the law. Along with Wendy, a new friend with a similar infertility problem, she breaks into a fertility clinic, travels to Australia, a center of in-vitro fertilization, then on to Hong Kong. The two women's exploration of the brave new world of reproductive technologies takes a shocking turn when Wendy is violently killed-and Marissa's own life is mysteriously threatened. But personal danger does not deter her, and she allows herself to be drawn into the dark vortex of the baby-making business, where a woman's dearest dream turns slowly, agonizingly to dread... Timely, top-notch suspense that will grip the reader from the very first page, Vital Signs proves once again the unique and compelling genius of Robin Cook.

Outbreak

Outbreak

Author: Robin Cook Format: eBook Release Date: 11/09/2014

Outbreak is Robin Cook at his hair-raising best. Blending a premise of consummate public concern with a galvanizingly suspenseful plot, he has perhaps created his signature work. When the director of a Los Angeles health maintenance clinic succumbs, along with seven patients, to an untreatable-and virulently contagious-virus, Atlanta's Center for Disease Control goes on red alert. Unless the virus is isolated and checked, mankind may be facing its gravest medical crisis since the Black Death. Assigned by the CDC to investigate the disease, Dr. Melissa Blumenthal is soon caught up in the ultimate nightmare. The California case is merely the first in a burgeoning series of outbreaks that occur in unrelated geographical areas but with puzzling commonalities: The locations are always health-care facilities, and the victims are only physicians and their patients. As her investigation takes increasingly bizarre turns, Melissa finds that behind the natural threat lurks a far more sinister possibility: sabotage. Before she discovers the truth, Melissa must overcome her superiors' fury, her colleagues' doubts-and the wrath of a powerful cabal, sworn to achieve its aims, no matter what the cost in human life-including Melissa's. Brilliantly imagined, fiendishly compelling, Outbreak is superb Robin Cook-the kind of speculative chiller that will reverberate in the reader's awareness long after the final page is turned.

Mutation

Mutation

Author: Robin Cook Format: eBook Release Date: 11/09/2014

He sought to create the son of his dreams-and invented a nightmare. Robin Cook's techno-medical thriller probes every father's greatest fear. Drawing on a horror theme as old as Frankenstein, as fresh as tomorrow's headlines, Mutation is a chilling cautionary tale of the perils of genetic engineering. When ob/gyn and biomolecular researcher Dr. Victor Frank learns of his wife's infertility, he initiates a bold-and dangerous-experiment. Unbeknownst to everyone, including her, Dr. Frank has adapted the methods of animal husbandry and molecular genetics to human reproduction. Fusing his wife's egg and his own sperm, he sets in motion the production of a superior being, his child. The result of this experiment, a son, VJ, is born to a surrogate mother and legally adopted by the Franks. To their delight, their son is physically perfect, and by the age of three, displays the complex problem-solving abilities of a prodigy. Victor Frank is a happy man. He has produced a flawless human being, and that success-plus the subsequently healthy births he has covertly engineered through his obstetrics practice-bodes well for a dazzling professional future. Then, without warning, VJ's intelligence level plunges to a point appropriate to his age, but stabilizes. For the moment, Frank can breathe a sigh of relief: Even if VJ is no longer the genius he was, at least he will be normal. But that relief is tragically short-lived, for all too soon VJ begins to change again. And this time, there is no cause for comfort-only terror. Mutation is both the spellbinding chronicle of a father pitted against his son in mythic battle and a timely warning to us all. Here is blue-chip Robin Cook, destined to be as controversial as it is compulsively readable.

Mortal Fear

Mortal Fear

Author: Robin Cook Format: eBook Release Date: 11/09/2014

The man who invented medical techno-horror takes you on a startling and chilling odyssey into the origins of life-and death. When an eminent biomolecular geneticist dies violently before his eyes, a doctor must use more than his medical knowledge to explain what he comes to believe is murder, and to stop a scientific breakthrough from becoming a curse instead of a miracle. There was a lot that internist Jason Howard didn't know about Dr. Alvin Hayes. But when the scientist met his sudden end, it all came out with a vengeance-for the academically respected geneticist had led a double life, and the private side was damning. Dismissing official police reports linking Hayes's death to his associations with the sordid side of society, Jason believes Hayes was silenced to keep him from revealing the results of his research, and the secret lies not in the back streets of Boston's erotic underworld, the Combat Zone, but in the high-tech genetics laboratories of the Good Health Plan clinic. Overcoming his own personal emotional problems, Jason turns his powers of diagnosis to deduction, vowing to solve the mystery no matter who tries to stop him. His search will take him from gleaming modern labs to seamy sex clubs, from Beacon Hill drawing rooms to the wilds of the Pacific Northwest and back, before the pieces of the deadly puzzle fall into place. By then, Jason has unearthed the scientific breakthrough Hayes was killed to hide-and has himself become the target of a malevolent cabal, bend on using the origins of life to create a hell on earth. With this disturbing story, DNA research is shown to have a fearful potential, not only through possible mistakes and accidents, but ironically even through success. Splendidly researched and intricately plotted, Mortal Fear is Robin Cook at his prophetic and galvanizing best.

Hard-up student Jason Schonberg abandoned his scruples to join Arolen, undisputed giant of the pharmaceuticals industry. Yet the more he discovered about Arolen, the less he liked. Then came the new baby. And the launch of a new wonder drug - which his wife's own doctor wants to prescribe. A coincidence. Too much of a coincidence . . .Utterly chilling. Frighteningly plausible. A classic of medical horror that could come only from Robin Cook. When young dancer Jennifer Schonberg becomes pregnant by accident, her feelings are mixed-but her husband, Adam, is far more ambivalent. For Adam, a third-year medical student already in financial straits, the loss of Jennifer's income and the cost of the coming child mean he must drop out of medical school-on the eve of becoming a doctor. Against the advice of his teachers, his colleagues, and his wife most of all, Adam takes a job as a salesman for the vastly powerful drug company Arolen Pharmaceuticals, whose influence is known to penetrate deep into the physician's world. But just how awesome Arolen's control is over the medical profession Adam is yet to discover. It will become all too clear in a series of increasingly terrifying revelations: corruption old as greed itself; bizarre brutality searing as a futuristic vision of hell; the preservation of life turned to a deadly purpose. And awaiting him at the end of his violent odyssey is a confrontation grave beyond imagining, in which the survival of Jennifer's unborn child hangs in the balance as Adam fights to save his family-and the soul of medicine-from the overwhelming evil that is Mindbend. Moving from gleaming hospital corridors that shelter dark secrets to luxurious cruise ships that are not what they seem, from action-packed chases to scenes of spell-binding scientific terror, Mindbend will draw all those who read so much as a page into its web of irresistible suspense-and hold them fast.

From the consummate master of techno-horror comes a spellbinding novel of medicine gone mad. It starts as the marriage of true minds-two gifted young physicians burning with the will to heal, soul mates as well as lovers. From that first moment in the medical centre when pathology resident Cassandra Cassidy meets brilliant cardiac surgeon Thomas Kingsley, she knows they are meant to be together. Forced by a deteriorating eye condition to switch from her chosen field to psychiatry, Cassandra needs the support and approval the charismatic doctor so passionately offers; and Thomas, privileged only child of banker-industrialist, finds in the beautiful and vulnerable girl the boundless devotion he so desperately requires. But as Thomas continues his meteoric rise, what should have been fairy-tale happiness begins to disintegrate. Saintly to an adoring public, Thomas is something other to the woman who loves him-an erratic and hostile stranger whose inexplicable rages and bizarre behaviour are increasingly disturbing. As the solidity of Cassandra's marriage begins to crumble, the dependable security of the hospital world around her seems equally menaced: Cassandra is convinced that someone is killing terminal patients-someone who holds the power of life and death in his hands and who wields it like the angel of death. Against her husband's furious objections, Cassandra takes it upon herself to stop the killings even as she fights to save her marriage. Only after she stumbles onto a terrifying discovery is she forced to realize that her dreams have metamorphosed into nightmares and that her search for the truth has opened the floodgates of unimaginable horror. Godplayer is a chilling confrontation of personalities in a hospital setting where the innocent too easily become the victims-and a powerful indictment of medicine's tragic inability to police itself.

Acceptable Risk

Author: Robin Cook Format: eBook Release Date: 11/09/2014

From the roots of an ancient witchcraft ... a new terror to destroy. With billions of dollars at stake, every scientist in America is fighting to discover the next Prozac, the latest 'feel good' drug. Edward Armstrong believes he has hit the jackpot. He has isolated a stunningly effective anti-depressant from a bacterial mould first uncovered over two hundred years ago. But there is more to the drug than anyone could have imagined. When Edward turns violent and the corpses of mutilated animals appear near the laboratory, his girlfriend decides to investigate the truth about this new 'miracle' drug. Before it claims any more innocent lives...From the best-selling doctor whose high-voltage thrillers regularly quicken readers' pulses comes a harrowing tale of greed, abandoned ethics, and ambition run awry in the newest area of medical intervention: cosmetic psychopharmacology. Prozac-like drugs are being prescribed not only for their original purposes but increasingly to alter individual personalities to currently valued norms. With dead-on accuracy and the pre-science of tomorrow's headlines, Robin Cook explores the perilous intersection where fame and unfathomable lucre waylay and seduce the very best and brightest of those sworn to do no harm. When neuroscientist Edward Armstrong begins dating Kimberly Stewart, a descendant of a woman who was hanged as a witch at the time of the Salem witch trials, he takes advantage of the opportunity to delve into a pet theory: that the "e;devil"e; in Salem in 1692 had been a hallucinogenic drug inadvertently consumed with mould-tainted grain. In an attempt to prove his theory, Edward grows the mould he believes responsible from samples taken from the Stewart estate. In a brilliant designer-drug transformation, the poison becomes Ultra, the next generation of antidepressants with truly startling therapeutic capabilities. Acceptable Risk is a story of quest: a researcher's quest for the ultimate drug and a woman's quest for self-understanding. Unbeknownst to either person, the two seemingly separate quests collide with devastating consequences. Once again, the writer who invented high-tech horror has created a tantalizing medical thriller enriched by the disturbing ring of truth.

But her feelings turn to anger and frustration when she attempts to autopsy the bodies and investigate the deaths, only to find herself at odds with her superiors, the police department, and the relatives themselves. The reason for the opposition range from political expediency to religious belief, but Laurie senses that something far more menacing links the so-called random deaths. Jeopardizing her professional future, Laurie Montgomery sets out to uncover the truth-which leads her to a distinguished New York hospital and, beyond that, to nightmare. Robin Cook's Blindsight creates a chilling, haunting aura of terror and suspense, where fact and fiction imperceptibly merge.

Whitby Through Time

Whitby Through Time

Author: Robin Cook Format: Paperback Release Date: 15/03/2013

Famous for its attractive scenery, abbey, trademark jet jewellery and Dracula, it could be argued that Whitby needs little introduction. But as this volume sets out to show, there is far more to Whitby. The Abbey, of course, is the best-known and loved building here, but perhaps fewer people know of the important role it played in shaping the development of the church in England. And while the jet industry has a long history, boatbuilding, fishing and whaling were the lifeblood of Whitby before it became a popular tourist destination from the Victorian period onwards. That is not to say that Whitby's picturesque aspect and gothic influences are not to be celebrated. Indeed, the beauty of Whitby is that it has retained all these elements of its past and more, and that the town remains relatively unspoilt - as this colourful collection of images captures in vivid detail.

From the undisputed master of the medical thriller comes the story of a deadly epidemic spread not merely by microbes but by sinister sabotage--a terrifying cautionary tale for the millennium as the health care giants collide. After he loses first his Midwestern ophthalmology practice to a for-profit medical giant and then his family to a commuter airline tragedy, Dr. John Stapleton's life is transformed to ashes. Feeling less the golden boy than a jaded cynic, Stapleton retrains in forensic pathology and relocates to find an uneasy niche for himself in a city that suits his changed perspective: the cold, indifferent, concrete maze of New York. Stapleton thinks he is past pain and past caring, but as a series of virulent and extremely lethal illnesses--capped by a particularly deadly outbreak of a rare strain of influenza--strikes the young, the old, and the innocent, his suspicions are aroused. When the apparent epicentres of these outbreaks are revealed to be hospitals and clinics controlled by the same for-profit giant that cannibalized his old ophthalmology practice, Stapleton fears he has stumbled upon a diabolic conspiracy of catastrophic proportions: Could the for-profit giant be engaged in the systematic elimination of its more costly subscribers? Getting at the truth leads to Stapleton's unlikely pairing--both professionally and personally--with Terese Hagen, an art director at a hot Madison Avenue advertising firm. Together they discover that the real explanation behind the killer contagions is even more Machiavellian than could be imagined. Contagion anticipates some of the uncharted consequences of managed health care, in an age when even the wariest consumer may be at risk. It is Robin Cook at his unerring best.
