Book Description

~ It looks like Carolyn and Mark are in deep, deep shit ~
Mark and Carolyn live in an alternate 1989 where Ronald Reagan is on his fourth presidential term. The USA has a rigid, long-standing caste system and abortions were never made legal. Being homeless is a crime that is punishable by imprisonment in an internment camp the inmates call Tent City. Most of Mark’s ER patients are inmates at this camp and are victims of a new disease these illegals call the Transient Flu. This deadly and rapidly spreading disease mutates with each new host, collecting information, changing code. The disease evolves lightning quick, spreading like pond ripples and infecting everyone. No one is safe. Mark and Carolyn dig too deep and uncover the brutal truth: Transient Flu was purposely made and is one hundred percent fatal. Carolyn’s employer, Hudson-Smythe Pharmaceuticals, discovers the chain of evidence. It traces the pharmacide back to Hudson-Smythe and the crime of the century. Cost is no object and deadly force is authorized.
Yes. Carolyn and Mark are in deep, deep shit.

3.0 out of 5 stars Solid story, little or no editing March 28, 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Compelling characters and a thriller-type plot make this a good read. It's not quite as fast-paced as a thriller, but the dystopian alternate USA is both vivid and scary.

The book needed both an editor and a copy editor. The author doesn't quite pull off all the tense changes and there are a few annoying misused words. Weird and truly annoying was the overuse of italicized words. It was distracting. I subtracted 1 star for these problems.

5.0 out of 5 stars A slower burning trip, but a trip nonetheless December 5, 2012
By Craig
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
If you read Pharmacide AFTER Nelson's other works such as "You Morbund Westfall", you'll feel a bit out of sorts at first. The trip comes on slower and seems more like normal reality at first but the destination is just as wonderful.

The character development is there in spades and the fireworks and tracers are spectacular. You'll enjoy this quite a bit, I do believe. :)

Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
One of the best books I've read in a very long time. If you want to read a book in one day, grab this one and be prepared for a sore back from the long time it takes to finish this book. As soon as I can get to a Wi-Fi, I will order more by this author.
