Can there be a magic bullet?
The quest for a magic bullet is to find a drug which can cure disease and do no harm. Microbiologist Adam Knight finds that the new antibiotic, Floracillin, he has discovered can cause cancer. He falls in love with a young talented singer, the daughter of the head of a pharmaceutical company who wants to acquire the commercial rights to Floracillin.
But he becomes responsible for other bullets. Those that come from Kalashnikov automatic rifles and can shatter lives.
Amazon has it listed as a medical mystery, but that is really a minor thread in the overall fabric of the story. Adam appears to be surrounded by conspiracy of unknown dimensions and spends much of his time unraveling the many mysteries holding him back. It becomes very difficult to tell who is friend and who is foe.
I enjoyed this story, but was interrupted by dozens of spelling errors. They should all be fixed now, providing a smoother read for you, the next reader. I give Magic Bullets 3.7 stars. The score would have been quite a bit higher except for all the spelling errors.
Make no mistake, this is a good story!
