Really darned good--even having read many, many novels.

like most medical thrillers, and this one did not disappoint. Very relevant, I thought, in terms of the Ebola scare going on now, worldwide. A little unbelievable, in terms of curing the Doomsday germ, but hopeful. Would recommend, as a nurse.

"Just imagine the pandemonium that would result if domestic terrorists got involved in deadly germ warfare. That's just what happens in Resistant, when a right-wing extremist group accidentally releases flesh-eating bacteria completely resistant to any known treatments. While the terrorists kidnap a specialist to find a cure (they'd wanted to infect only specific victims), the FBI teams up with Dr. Lou Welcome, in his 3rd series appearance, to beat them to it. Fast-paced and compelling, this is most likely the last book by author Michael Palmer, who died in 2013."

Scary stuff. Reminds me of what is happening in today's political arena in regard to Medicare, Social Security and other human service programs as regards to the One Hundred Neighbors.
