Dr. Laura Nelson has a good life. She has well-adjusted kids. A research project she's been working on is progressing nicely. She is the chief of surgery at Tampa City Hospital. What more can one ask?

Until, that is, a diagnosis is made on the first case of HIV/AIDS in the Tampa area. A few days later, a highly resistant bacterial infection appears in the surgical intensive care unit. Laura's daughter is exposed to this new bacteria and is already showing symptoms. Fatal symptoms.

A specialist friend, Stacy Jones, arrives to help. The two doctors uncover a covert white supremacist cell plan of an attack of huge proportions ready to be launched on Atlanta. Weapon of Choice by Patricia Gussin, while written as fiction, could happen in real life. Our lives. Not a happy thought. Gussin is a physician, which is evident from the book she has written. She writes with authority while producing a work of fiction that will haunt you.

Working against time, the two doctors determine that there could be a connection between the threat to Tampa and the virulent strain of bacteria facing Atlanta. This is a compelling story that will have you flipping pages well into the night. Don't miss Weapon of Choice.
