On a special night out, a father/son outing for burgers and fries turns into tragedy as the boy becomes fatally ill and dies within hours as a result of E. coli poisoning. Taking a leave from his practice, Dr. Kim Regis is determined to find out who is responsible for his son's death. Not only does he hit a brick wall of silence, he soon meets with violence as thugs attempt to stifle his inquiry. With his trademark pulse-pounding flair, Robin Cook delivers a cutting-edge thriller borrowing from today's fears and tomorrow's technology.

I thoroughly enjoyed this page turner, except it was a father/daughter outing that starts the story, not father/son.

A physician's worst nightmare comes true when his child dies from eating tainted meat in a fast food restaurant. Vowing that this will never happen again, the physician investigates the meat industry supplying the fast food chain and uncovers unethical cover-ups between meat producers and governments sworn to monitor food safety standards.

While Cook's ability to translate science into readable fiction is far less effective than someone like Michael Crichton - this is a fast, well reviewed read for lovers of medical fiction.

The usual - very good idea and plot but poor character development and dialogue.
