A lavishly funded, security-conscious nanotechnology institute in the foothills of the Rockies, Nano is ahead of the curve in the competitive world of molecular manufacturing, including the construction of microbivores, tiny nanorobots with the ability to gobble up viruses and bacteria.
But when Pia Grazdani takes a job there, she’s shocked by the secretive corporate culture. She’s warned by her boss not to investigate the other work being done at the gigantic facility, nor to ask questions about the source of the seemingly endless capital that funds the institute’s research. And when Pia encounters a fellow employee on a corporate jogging path suffering the effects of a seizure, she soon realizes she may have literally stumbled upon Nano’s human guinea pigs. Is the tech giant on the cusp of one of the biggest medical discoveries of the twenty-first century—a treatment option for millions—or have they already sold out to the highest bidder?

Dr. Robin Cook is the author of thirty-one previous books and is credited with popularizing the medical thriller with his wildly successful first novel, Coma. He divides his time between New Hampshire and Florida. His most recent bestsellers are Death Benefit, Cure, and Intervention.From Booklist:
Pia Grazdani, the heroine of Cook’s previous thriller, Death Benefit (2011), has relocated from New York to Colorado, where she’s taken a job at Nano, a cutting-edge nanotechnology company. Though Pia thinks she’s found a safe haven there, she begins to suspect that Nano might not be as transparent as the charismatic CEO, Zachary Berman, makes it out to be. While jogging on her lunch break, Pia stumbles across a Chinese man in cardiac arrest. She revives him and rushes him to the hospital only to have Zachary and Nano security guards spirit him right out of the ER. Wondering what the company could be hiding, Pia resolves to gain access to a secure building at Nano, even if it means having to get close to Zachary, whose infatuation with her borders on obsession. As in any Cook novel, the scientific details are fascinating, but here the characters are underdeveloped, and the constant objectification of Pia by almost every man who crosses her path wears thin. --Kristine Huntley
