From the author of Welcome Home From Vietnam, Finally: A Vietnam Trauma Surgeon’s Memoir comes a groundbreaking medical thriller featuring five Vietnam veterans who feel helpless to treat a fatal infectious tissue destroying disease first observed during the Vietnam War before becoming global.
It begins in the 1971 Vietnam wartime jungle and follows five Vietnam Veterans and people touched by it in their stateside journey to define and irradicate this fatal gruesome disease. The veterans feel helpless to treat this disease first encountered in soldiers during the mid-1960s, peaking globally in the early 1970s, and essentially disappearing by 1975. A talented plastic surgeon, Claire Ferrier, tragically succumbs to this dormant illness after returning to the US from Cameroon in 1986. With great effort, dedication and original thinking the brotherhood of Vietnam Veterans spearheads the discovery of the disease's causation and eliminates this vile occurrence. Corrupt activities of Big Pharma in collusion with an influential US Senator are at the root of the causation of the disease.
