As a pharmacist, I stayed up until 4 am to finish this book. I loved the way Dr. Goodman figured out the mechanism of action of Jandramycin. Once I knew the mechanism I guessed correctly at the class of drugs that would be used as an anecdote. This was the most exciting pharmaceutical thriller I have ever read. I think it is definitely helpful to be a pharmacist or someone in the pharmaceutical industry to be able to get all the nuances but I think anyone in the medical profession esp interested in infectious disease will love it. Dr. Mabry even starts out with the realistic irritation by Dr. Wolfe that he isn't as respected because he is a PharmD. I think the introduction of characters leaves definite openings for further books in this series. Loved it.
