Although Robin Cook has written many books, this is the first I have ever read.

The cover says it was made into a TV movie and somehow I missed the movie as well, but after reading the book, I would like to see the movie.

A meteor falls to the earth, landing in a plume of dust and debris. This smooth, black, disk-like meteor suddenly extends an arm and collects samples of the earth to verify that it has indeed landed on the right planet. Once this is confirmed, the plan is put into action.

As an unsuspecting Beau spots an unusual small, round, black disk and picks it up to further inspect it, he suddenly drops it and proclaims it "stung" him. Within hours, a virus is turned loose one the inhabitants of earth...a virus that is destined to change earth-life as we know it.

I liked this book, although there were enough medical/technical terms to irratate me, but also convince me that Robin Cook know medicine enough to make the story more plausible.
