Dear Librarians,

As chief of surgery at Tampa City Hospital, life is good for Dr. Laura Nelson. But it all changes when a highly resistant bacterial infection ravages the surgical intensive care unit and patients are dying. When Laura's daughter is exposed to the bacteria and begins to show symptoms, Laura calls her friend Stacy Jones for help. Stacy, an infectious disease specialist at the CDC in Atlanta, arrives in Tampa unaware that in her own city, a covert white supremacist cell is about to unleash a bioterrorism attack on a massive scale.

The year is 1985 and the AIDS epidemic is beginning to spread to America's cities. The period details and the medical details are pitch-perfect, the pace relentless, the concept intense. A winning combination for readers who love thrillers.
