Since I like books having to do with a virus or bacteria strain gone amok, this one sounded up my alley. Sure enough, I was soon into the storyline and turning pages to find out what would happen. The story developed quickly and kept my interest. Imagine being in a position of being the personal physician of an ex-president who then develops a fatal illness. That is untreatable. Except perhaps by an experimental drug that was not approved by the FDA and thus discarded, so only a small amount of it remains. And another person, who is also your girlfriend, is affected with the same illness and you only have a small amount of the drug to administer. Do you give one dose to each and hope it works? Or two doses to one for that person to have a better chance? Not an easy position to be in and one that the main character faces in this story.
For those who like mysteries, particularly with a medical theme, this was an interesting and quick read. I read it within a day.
