“Given the current state of the world, it is relevant now more than ever to inform individuals on how serious diseases can change our culture. With ‘The Lethal Elixir,’ readers will be both entertained and gain some insight surrounding infectious diseases.”

Author of “The Perfect Match,” Dennis Ross brings readers a riveting new medical mystery novel that follows life-saving medical specialists, ruthless international spies and determined FBI agents in “The Lethal Elixir.” Taking place in Chicago, Alex Williamson, a quiet Deaconess Hospital Laboratory employee, falls ill with a highly contagious and lethal infection.

The story unfolds as hospital employees panic and fear of the outbreak begins to spread. Dr. Maggie Hamilton, the infectious diseases specialist at Deaconess Hospital, takes on Mr. Williamson’s case and is astounded by how the hospital employee could have come into contact with such a serious virus. After medical scrutiny, Dr. Hamilton, with help from the CDC, find that Mr. Williamson is suffering from a “weapons-grade” strain of the Ebola infection that could potentially spread and become a worldwide lethal epidemic.

The plot thickens as more cases begin to appear. Due to the virulence of the virus and the urgency to control it, the FBI gets involved and they work with the medical specialists to track down the outbreak’s source. As more evidence surfaces, Dr. Hamilton and her newfound FBI confidant, Mack Johnson, find themselves traveling across the country to locate the perpetrators responsible for the outbreak before the elixir is unleashed upon the world.

“During my lengthy career as a physician, I have seen many infectious diseases,” said Ross. “Given the current state of the world, it is relevant now more than ever to inform individuals on how serious diseases can change our culture. With ‘The Lethal Elixir,’ readers will be both entertained and gain some insight surrounding infectious diseases.”

Throughout the novel, the author explores three different romantic relationships and their developments as the story evolves. Readers will find themselves rooting for Dr. Hamilton as she sets out to save the public along with her developing FBI love interest.
