Behind the headlines on cloning--Dr. Robin Cook blends fact with fiction in one of his most terrifying bestsellers...

Chromosome 6 is a prophetic thriller that challenges the medical ethics of genetic manipulation and cloning in the jungles of equatorial Africa, where one mistake could bridge the gap between man and ape--and forever change the genetic map of our existence...

About the Author:

Robin Cook, M.D., is the author of more than thirty books and is credited with popularizing the medical thriller with his wildly successful first novel, Coma. He divides his time among Florida, New Hampshire, and Boston. His most recent novels include Host, Cell, and Nano.

From AudioFile:

A medical examiner in New York worried by some odd autopsy findings and a scientist in equatorial Africa performing genetic experiments that could dramatically alter life on earth are drawn together in Cook's latest medical thriller. Boyd Gaines's dramatic reading, accented by sound effects and musical bridges, establishes the characters and the emotional reality of the frightening situations. But it's hampered by scant character development and sudden leaps in the narrative. Despite these weaknesses, Gaines's easy style and an intriguing premise make this abridgment worth a listen. M.A.M.
