A MEDICAL THRILLER OMNIBUS.

A Life for a Life
When Dr Fraser Callan claims that Alkovin, the new 'wonder drug' for leukaemia, has dangerous side effects, his boss, Connie Flint sends him to America for three months to shut him up.

No one's listening to his concerns and Fraser's starting to wonder if someone's pulling strings to hush up Alkovin's problems.

There's no love lost between Fraser and Connie, so when Fraser returns from America to discover that Frances, his fiancee, has contracted leukaemia and Connie is treating her with Alkovin, there's bound to be trouble...

Under threat of dismissal and desperately worried about Frances, Fraser takes his troubles to Department of Health Inspector Tom Jones.

But before Tom can get to the bottom of the Alkovin problem, Fraser finds himself imprisoned for murder...

Bed of Nails
Chris Randall has returned to Oxford, after several months living the nomadic life.

Back in the same research lab at St Frideswide's hospital, he reprises his role as a locum laboratory worker. Surrounded by familiar faces, some, such as Sally Wytham, are happy to see him; others are more hostile.

But where is the most hostile of them all, his old friend, the Glaswegian John Devlin?

After several days of no-show, Sally and Chris begin to worry... that is until they remember the top-secret project John was working on, a cure for AIDS.

As the duo join forces to try and uncover the truth about John's project and his location, the more sinister the situation becomes.

Then, there is a sudden change of pace, as we tear around England with Chris in a race against time to uncover the truth.

Changing alliances, car accidents, a man on the run... will justice ever be served?

Going Viral
A threatening letter sent to the Prime Minister puts the British people in grave danger.

The terrorist group John Amend-all are demanding that the government increases its aid to Africa, or they will release a deadly smallpox virus provoking a national epidemic.

The Smallpox Containment and Reaction Unit (SCRUB) operation is launched. Dr. Herry Smith is called away from his day job as Medical Director of Public Health to help.

Teaming up with Detective Inspector Rebecca Hale, the pair combine their medical and investigative skills in a bid to crack down on the culprits.

But time quickly starts to run out, and before they know it hospitals start to fill with victims of the deadly virus.

Can the SCRUB team track down the terrorists?

'Going Viral' is a gripping bio-terrorist thriller.

Praise for Andrew Puckett

'Concise, fast-paced ... thoroughly enjoyable.' Financial Times

'Pacy, well written and a chillingly believable premise.' The Times

'Another briskly diverting knowledge-ridden entertainment set in an offbeat milieu.' Oxford Times

'Murder and sabotage at nuclear power station as protestors gather at gate and official nerves twang over tarnished safety image. Sober start with runaway early-movie finish.' The Guardian
