Foreign Body by Robin Cook

In Foreign Body Robin Cook takes the reader through many suspenseful twists and turns. With medical surgery costs so high in the U.S. many people without insurance are opting for surgery in other countries and India is one that has taken advantage of offering lower costs and a tourist-like experience. Losing patients to another country is much frowned upon by the U.S. hospitals and in an effort to stem the flow, a plan is concocted so that outcomes of medical tourism is not smooth sailing. Throw in CNN news, who often seem willing to take on controversial stories with little research, and the plan looks like it is becoming successful in deterring patients from leaving the U.S. That is until Jennifer Hernandez, a fourth-year medical student discovers her beloved grandmother has died in an Indian hospital and she has believes the death is suspicious.
