Blessing or Curse
A Brier Hospital Novel
Lawrence W. Gold, M.D.
Sara, a young, previously healthy woman, and a missionary, arrives at Brier Hospital with a rash and low grade fever. In minutes, the rash erupts into destructive skin lesions and Sara goes into shock.
Is this an un-diagnosed deadly disease, or is Sara the victim of a biological weapon?
When the police discover the dead body of a teenage missionary, and Sara's sister, Lori, also a missionary, develops this deadly disease, the use of a biological weapon comes to the fore.
What is it? Who did it? Why did they do it? Can anyone stop it?

Many time, people who are in the missionary field or people who visit other countries and even other states, go home with bacterial infections that sometimes end in death. What is going on? Does the government have something to do with this? Is it part of the Biological weapons research here and in other countries? Could a mistake or mistakes been made that they don't know how to handle? Good and evil lurk everywhere, even in our government. True, much good is done but isn't it in the choice of doing good or just doing whatever can be done? A choice always has to be made. But are the right choices being made?
