Read Charlatans Online Free - "Charlatans is an explosive thriller from New York Times bestselling author and master of the medical thriller Robin Cook.
Noah Rothauser is the new super chief resident at Boston Memorial Hospital. Housing state-of-the-art medical facilities, it’s always been Noah’s dream to work for such an esteemed institution. But the pressures of the role become all too clear when a seemingly routine operation results in the tragic death of an otherwise healthy man. With potential malpractice suspected it falls to the newly appointed surgical doctor to investigate what happened.
Questioning those involved uncovers bitter feuds within the hospital’s surgical staff when Dr. William Mason, the egotistical, world-class surgeon who performed the operation, is quick to blame staff anaeshtetist Dr. Ava London for the disastrous outcome. However Dr. London, along with the nursing staff, point the finger at the surgeon.
When two more anaesthesia-related deaths occur, Noah is forced to look closer at the impressively competent, charming, yet mysterious Dr. London, and he quickly realizes there’s far more to her than meets the eye. With his own job and integrity coming into jeopardy, Noah must decide which doctor is at fault and who he can believe – before any more lives are lost . . ."

Was looking forward to this book, as I like medical mysteries. This book was disappointing. Superficial with an ending that was unsatisfying. Dave your money.

I did not enjoy this book. Can not believe it was released by Robin Cook. A good 3/4 of the book was drivel about hospital routines, pre operative guidelines, medical school, residents, anesthesiologists physicians..... Then cases gone wrong..what happened, present at M&M rounds.
The rest was...

This is a good medical thriller. It kept me engaged all the way until the end. Yet, I was majorly frustrated with Dr. Noah. He may be smart and a good doctor but when it came to people, he was not a good judge of character. Yes, Dr. Mason may have been egotistical and not a very likable man himse...

Can't believe that so many readers gave it such a high rating. This book is so unbelievable that it was hard to finish. Having worked in medicine for over forty years there is so much that happened in this book that would never happened in a real hospital. An anesthesiologist involved in three de...

since reading COMA, Robin Cook has been a great favorite of mine and have read many books by him. Another great read. He knows his way around hospital settings and is awesome with suspense.
Do yourself a favor and read one of his books. You may end up liking him.

I've always enjoyed Robin Cook's stories, especially when they touch on physician credentialing, which I was involved with for most of my career. However, I found this story implausible and disappointing. The characters were almost non-human, the dialogue was stilted in the extreme and the story...
