The Jihad Virus Under Re-Construction

The Jihad Virus coverNext up, another Peyton McKean medical thriller. Actually, this was my first thriller, published ten years ago. I’m revamping it a little to bring the writing style up-to-date and to adjust the timeframe to modern realities like Osama bin Laden’s death and other global changes.

Nonetheless, the story remains the same. Terrorists have crossed the border from Canada into the US, and the only clue is a Customs agent who comes down with smallpox. Not just any old strain of smallpox, mind you, but something new and deadly.

Call in Dr. Peyton McKean, “The Greatest Mind Since Sherlock Holmes.” Maybe he can trace the lethal microbe’s whereabouts and create a vaccine to contain it, before it breaks out into a plague the likes of which have not been seen since the Middle Ages.

I’ve begun a revision of the manuscript in anticipation of releasing the novel as an ebook and paperback sometime within the next several months.

Stay tuned.

Meanwhile, if you’re itching to get your hands on a Peyton McKean thriller, try The Neah Virus, already available in ebook and paperback formats.
