Summary:We all know where the path of good intentions leads, and it is clearly illustrated in the newest novel by Derek Armstrong. Hoping to cure his son, Dr. Gies has engineered a virus to cure violence in psychopathic patients. When Dr. Ada Kenner of the CDC notices a sharp increase in violent rampages conducted by seemingly “normal” citizens, she suspects a Rabies type virus is to blame. Hmm. Could Dr. Gies’ genetically altered virus be to blame? With the help of Alban Bane (who brings to mind the cranky Dr. Gregory House), and a host of unconventional characters, Ada must find the source of this new virus and find out why Braxis, a shady pharmaceutical company, conveniently has enough serum to vaccinate millions of people and make billions of dollars.
This novel is filled with suspense, humor, adventure and satire. If you’re looking for something a little offbeat with colorful characters, you’ll want to read this.
Who will like this book? People who like medical thrillers and also want to crack a smile or two while reading them.
