Plague Ship by Frank G. Slaughter (eBook)


Product Description

From the Author of Code Five, Doctor's Wives and Doctor's Daughters

High in the Andes Mountains of Peru, an archaeologist stumbles upon an an­cient tomb, unwittingly releasing the germs from a civilization doomed by a plague over 5,000 years ago. What happens when this deadly organism, for which there is no antidote, reap­pears, forms the basis of this sensational novel by the author of Code Five 

This is the story of one man in par­ticular—Dr. Grant Reed and the dedi­cated crew of the international hospital ship Mercy, as they set about the task of quarantining the first victims of a hideous plague. Set adrift by frightened Peruvians, the aging and crippled ship faces a hurricane, mutinous patients, and even a pair of great white sharks, grisly mascots of a ship of death. . . .  

Frank Slaughter here takes on one of the most important and exciting subjects to be found among his novels—the complex, high-stakes world of interglobal medicine, taking us behind the public deeds to the private people whose courage can make the difference between today's flus . . . and tomor­row's headlines. 

This is one of Frank Slaughter's fin­est medical suspense stories, a super­bly thrilling tale based on some all-too- real possibilities.
