Miracle Cure - the book
Harlan Coben has done it again. This intriguing thriller is an extraordinary story of gay killings aimed to stop research into a new cure for AIDs. Sara the beautiful television news reporter and her celebrity model sister Cassandra team up with Mike a basketabll hero in helping Harv their researcher doctor friend find out whose behind the rash of gory deaths. The motive at first seems plain to Max Bernstein the pencil chewing New York detective but as doctors and nurses die and healthy people go missing there's much more at stake. Especially when the sleazy televangelist is raising money saying Aids is todays plague of Egypt. Chemistry and sociology mix with Coben's endearing characterizations. I couldn't put it down. But then I've read all of Coben's books. He's a heavy hitter against anti semitism and any kind of discrimination that makes a person miss seeing the truly entertaining human in all of us.
