3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By David on June 24, 2004
Format: Paperback
This is a great book by a *very* good author. It's about a rabies outbreak in New England. A new strain of rabies virus is discovered that can be transmitted directly from person to person (not just from animals to people). Some animal rights activists "rescue" some infected animals from a lab, releasing the virus into the wild.
I can't give a more detailed description of the plot without flipping through the book to refresh my memory. I don't want to do that. I'm looking forward to re-reading the book cover-to-cover because the book is so good and more than ten years have passed since I read it.
Read this book -- especially if you're a fan of Dean Koontz, Stephen King, or Michael Crichton.
It will probably appeal to fans of the movie "28 Days Later".
I also recommend "Limerock", "Dream House", "Nightflyer", and "Eternal Bliss". ("Nightflyer" is the best of the group.)

4 of 5 people found the following review helpful By David on August 2, 1998
Format: Mass Market Paperback
The Lyssa Syndrome is a great book, a real pageturner. Fast paced, engrossing, and clever. It is so good that I still think about it eight years after reading it. The Philadelphia Library lost the copy I read so I hunted down a used copy at a flea market just so I could lend it to other people.
It's been eight years so I can't give a detailed description of it without skimming through my copy. I don't want to do that. I'm *glad* I'm forgetting the story. It will make it more fun to read again.
It's more of a medical thriller than a horror novel. There is nothing supernatural in the book.
If you can find a copy, read this book. It should have been a bestseller. The only thing I didn't like about it was the original cover.
Horror or medical thriller fans will love it.
