After a tumultuous year in which her mentor is murdered and her estranged father comes back into her life, Pia Grazdani, the embattled medical student from Death Benefit, decides to take a year off from her medical studies and escape New York City. Intrigued by the promise of the burgeoning field of medical technology and the chance to clear her head, Pia takes a job at Nano, LLC, a lavishly funded, security-conscious nanotechnology insititute in the picturesque foothills of the Rockies. Nano, LLC, is ahead of the curve in the competitive world of molecular manufacturing, including the construction of microbivores, tiny nano-robots with the ability to gobble up viruses and bacteria.

But the corporate campus is a place of secrets. 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?

Quotes & Awards

  • “Excellent…a perfect protagonist for a thriller—gutsy, tenacious, expert in the martial arts and willing to take risks to get to the bottom of a mystery. Nano is one of Cook’s best.”

    Associated Press

  • “The scientific details are fascinating.”

    Booklist 

  • “A by-the-numbers thriller with no surprises but with the usual satisfactions.”

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Cory C. | 2/11/2014

    " Although we are given great insight into the main character of Pia and the protagonist, I found it difficult to develope any compassion for her. The ending falls flat ( and suggests a sequal?). Weighing the benifits and possible misuse of nano technology , was perhaps the 'throughline' of this book, an alert well founded. An alarm that might have been more successfully raised if we were to have any affinity to the characters within it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Julie Carter | 2/5/2014

    " I enjoyed this book more than the first book featuring Pia. I don't like her at all, but I did enjoy the story line in this book. The characters were much more interesting and by the end I was anxious to find out what happened. Unfortunately, I still don't know. It was disappointing that we were left hanging with a blatant set-up for a third book in the series. "
