Cook (Coma) is back with another medical thriller. When Dr. George Wilson, a radiology resident at a big L.A. hospital, takes a short break to attend an investors' meeting of an old classmate's company and learns about the biggest medical breakthrough of the past thousand years, IDoc, he is in awe. This simple cell phone app will essentially provide a customizable personal physician for diagnoses and treatment 24–7. George then does a little digging and walks into a cover-up of murder. While the concept is intriguing, Cook takes the story a bit slow in spots and wraps it up a bit too easily.
VERDICT George Guidall's narration is superb. Recommended.
