Dr. Stapleton is a forensic pathologist in New York City. He has come across quite a few unusual cases but the ones he starts are getting are quite weird. A series of lethal and virulent diseases-capped by a rare strain of influenza, start to arouse his suspicions. To find the truth, Dr. Stapleton teams up with Terese Hagen, a art director at a advertising firm. Is it a conspiracy or just a person with a vendetta?
I was looking through the library shelves when Contagion caught my eye. I read the blurb and decided to give it a shot. I enjoyed Robin Cook's writing style. It reminded me a bit of Dan Brown. I also enjoyed the way Robin Cook created his main character. I liked Jack Stapleton, the cynical-sarcastic man. Some of the medical terms went over my head, but other than that it was a great book. I will warn you there is a major twist, I never ever could have predicted. I will give the book 4 stars.
