A resistant strain of falciparum malaria accounted for significant US casualties in Iraqi Freedom’s early years. A special research study to treat this type of malaria involved a CDC chief physician and two New York specialists. These three individuals induce, rather than treat acute malaria attacks with added delirium to obtain inside stock market trader information. Almost a billion dollars were made until collateral damage with death and attempted murders draw attention by the NYPD and the CIA. Senator Clement, Drs. Ganucci, Krantz and Bellini use three war returnee malaria patients to milk the stock exchange and use murder, intimidation and extortion to maintain their scheme.
Detective Furdis Nosh is a relentless redhead female sleuth who will not let go of the investigation. Former Special Forces Officer David Swanson is a malaria victim who wants out of the malaria study alive. He’s distraught over a colleague ending up comatose during one of his malaria episodes. The woman, Lisa Feldman, is kidnapped from the hospital as her memory of Krantz and Binelli returns. Swanson joins with CIA Agent Mallory Finder when Finder’s fiancée, Lisa Feldman is abducted.
Senator Clement uses all means at his disposal to thwart revelation of his malaria-stock market scheme. Snipers, contract killers and deadly healthcare workers reach out with their lethal tentacles to prevent exposure. Nosh and Fender are not enough to probe and disclose the stock market assault.
As a retired physician I’m devoting my time to writing novels, memoir-based fiction and short stories. My life as an author of fiction began in 2003 after a few years at Toastmasters International delivering captivating stories and speeches. I believe literature should be educational, fun, serious, full of feelings and always with a touch of fantasy and a thread of truth. Like all my novels true lifetime situations are interwoven with suspenseful and intriguing story lines. My 13 novels and short story book bear that philosophy out. Reviews of my books in Amazon.com have been 5-star. Comments for WHO WILL WEEP FOR ME such as “high school coming of age makes the story feel authentic and make the reader want more” is typical of reader satisfaction.
I live with my wife in San Antonio near my daughter and her family with four of my grandchildren. My goal as an author is to publish several novels a year with my novel portraying terrorism in the US, - OCEAN CITY HQ - recently published..
Bacteria, viruses, and parasites can be used as a weapon or a tool for financial gain and advancement of power. Blackwater Fever is a tale of returning US Middle East Soldiers who have malaria from Iraq. The US spent 2-billion dollars to control malaria so far during the current conflict. Several US physicians and politicians now see an opportunity for using the malaria parasite via these infected soldiers to control the stock market. Today's headlines and reading Blackwater Fever will make you shudder as you read each page and experience the same possibilities with the coronavirus.
The falciparum organism in its human host didn’t know how old it was. It could have been a few years old or from a reproducing strain a few linear centuries old. Right now it was nestling in the organ called the liver. From past experience it knew a chemical would be coming to temporarily stop it from being allowed to live in the red blood cells. That was okay. If its host died, the organism would die also unless a mosquito bit into it and injected it into another human. As far as the falciparum knew, this was its definitive living environment and it was content until the next chemical would release it. The falciparum was unaware that it had produced myriads of siblings living snugly within the sick and dying red blood cells.
