Item description for The Gore Experiment by H. Jay Scheuermann...
William Gore is not a mad scientist: he is a dedicated medical researcher working on G.L.X.-14, an AIDS serum. He is on the brink of a major breakthrough and seeks to force the pace, spurred on by his knowledge of the suffering to be spared, if he is right, and the millions of lives of AIDS victims to be saved. But as things begin to go askew, how far dare he go? What level of risk is warranted? What, and who, is he prepared to sacrifice? The answers become worse than you can imagine as William Gore treads a path to horror.
The Gore Experiment may be fiction, but it addresses real issues in the world of experimental vaccines, disease-busting drugs and genetic engineering. Is science unknowingly exposing us to risk through overconfidence in ever narrowing fields of expertise, ignorant of ramifications? Or is the red tape of bureaucracy signing the death warrants of the terminally sick? Well, William Gore at least is confident. He is convinced of what he must do. Should he do it?
This is not a book for the faint-hearted. H.Jay Scheuermann adds a new high-tech dimension to the traditions of vampires, Jekylls and Hydes as William Gore paves his own road to hell. But there is a twist....

Pattrick Brian Miller writes: This story takes every cliche you know about vampires and transforms them into gripping, edge-of-your-heartrate reality. Check your blood pressure between chapters because you're in for the most suspenseful medical thriller of your life! H. Jay Scheuermann's masterful first delve into the world of medical thriller fiction will literally keep you up at night. Don't be surprised, while reading this novel, if you find yourself looking over your shoulder at the slightest sound or keeping a watchful eye on the shadows that seem to be creeping up from behind. Scheuermann blends his years of research into the AIDS virus with his pulse-pounding craft as a novelist. We've all faced pressures in our lives, and we all tend to rationalize our actions based on those pressures. But how far would we go? Find out how far Dr. William Gore goes when he faces one of the most incredible pressures that could face anyone: having the lives of millions in his hands.

A CHILLING MEDICALTHRILLER Jul 27, 2003
This story takes off at a fast pace right from the start and doesn't stop. The Author's style reminds me of Dean Koontz or John Saul. It is excellent.
