The FIRST time that Robin Cook scared the crap out of me. All of Robin Cook's books essentially follow the same formula, so in a sense, if you've read one, you've read them all...but if you're like me, you keep reading them because of his dedication to exhaustive research and fact-checking. There is just enough NON-fiction in his novels to make the stories absolutely terrifying. And the way he writes those cautionary, "This may not have actually happened...yet...but it could at ANY time," prologues and epilogues--those are usually the most terrifying parts of the books; the parts where he says, "I wasn't making that part, or that part, etc., up."

(For a minute, there, I was crediting Cook with "Andromeda Strain," but that's Crichton. Very similar forumlas, those two.)
