Item description for The Medusa Strain by Robert Middlemiss Chris Holmes...

A gripping tale of bioterrorism that stunningly portrays the dangers of biological warfare in ways nonfiction never could. A story of personal courage in the face of terror and of lost love found. Mohammed Ali Osman is a bitter Iraqi scientist full of hatred for America. He breeds a deadly form of anthrax, which he calls The Medusa Strain, and a diabolical means to initiate the epidemic in the U.S. For Gil Martin, a divorced, burned out L.A. physician, Medusa sparks a lust for life and work again. And he is forced into contact with his ex-wife Tara, a top-notch CDC epidemiologist. Feelings both thought long dead are rekindled. The epidemic spreads. Not even the First Family is immune. Dave Gardner, America's premier anthrax researcher, devises a bioweapon to counter Medusa. But how to use it? The sudden illness of Gil and Tara's daughter Cassie provides an unexpected clue on how to halt the epidemic. If it can be tested and developed in time. . .

Reviews - What do customers think about The Medusa Strain?

A real page turner!l  Apr 10, 2006
This is a well written thriller that is only too relevant in today's world. It is as much of a what and how are they going to do it as opposed to a who did it. A lot of fascinating biology,written so that it is easily accessible to the non-expert is included.
Wrong On A Most Basic Point!  Jul 4, 2004
Novels, to me, are often a dramatization of real life, a condensed microcosm of the real world. Here, Chris Holmes writes of terrorists in Iraq, after the first Gulf war, developing a communicable form of anthrax via genetic engineering, and setting it lose on America. Also, Iraq is depicted as having an active germ warfare program after the first Gulf war. Does Holmes have this wrong, and does he contribute to the war hysteria that caused many of us to follow our errant leaders into an unnecessary war? Yes, I believe, as weapons of mass destruction were never found in Iraq afer the second Gulf war... and even if they were found Iraq nevertheless never threatened the United States, prior to the second war, anyway, except in defense of their country. Yes, Saddam is a bad guy, but bombing their country and killing thousands of civilians has created vast hatred towards the United States and bred countless new terrorists. So, I consider this novel to be wrong on a most basic level. As for the literary value of the book, it was interesting, though not a page turner, was well written, good plot, with excellent character development. Just keep the above reservations in mind as you read it.
So current it's scary  Apr 9, 2003
Picked up this book because the author was coming to book store. So glad I was willing to try a new author. This book was filled with so many similar problems we are facing. When SARS arrived and I'm seeing people with face masks on their nose and mouth sitting next to me at the Doctor's office I was living the book. It had the Doctor hero and all the agency's CDC, FEMA and such that we are listening to right now. This story didn't need SARS or the WAR to make it interesting. It's a good story and very suspenceful.
CHILLING-A MUST READ!!!  Mar 15, 2003
Critchton move over for competition! Congratulations Mr. Holmes on an excellent and well written mystery! It held my attention from the thought provolking title to the back cover.
DON'T MISS THIS ONE!  Mar 9, 2003
Chilling, plausible, thought provoking, all too real, yet fiction. This is one book you will not stop talking or thinking about.
