My Kind of Mystery Reading Challenge 2017 February - January 2017-8



Comments for Marker

MarkerMarker: 08/19/07

Marker is the last of the Robin Cook books I read for the Medical Mystery Madness challenge. It was also a disappointment, thought not as much as Chromosome 6 and Abduction.

The book suffers from a slow and predictable plot with a ridiculous motivation for the villains behind the mysterious deaths. The cause of the deaths was easy to figure out and frankly better done in a more entertaining fashion in "The Curse of the King Kamehameha Club" (Magnum P. I. season 1, February 18, 1981). Both versions have mysterious deaths by heart failure of otherwise healthy people and a rivalry over property motivating the deaths. But one has tropical camp and the other is just an otherwise dry and uncreative medical thriller that fails to thrill.

Fortunately now I have managed to read through my back log of Robin Cook novels. I have released them through BookCrossing and can use the free shelf space for more interesting books.

I think that's the book I left for my 100th Raven's Quest release. I left it on top of the Berkeley Campanile, I think :)"
