"Epidemic" by J P Choquette

I thought I'd give a little more about what this book is about.  I have ordered it and can't wait to start reading it.

Imagine you’re a physician faced with a problem you’ve feared only in your worst nightmares: A hot virus, one that infects hundreds within days. Or imagine you are the CEO at a small, but fast-growing pharmaceutical company, and need just a little push to make it to the major leagues. What if you were the reporter, looking for a link between these two seemingly unrelated groups, and find information that puts your life in mortal danger? Everett James, a reporter in the sleepy state of Vermont, finds himself in the middle of the most important story of his life. When a deadly virus, H1N2, outbreaks in the small town of St. Albans, James takes the story. But his investigation turns up more questions than answers. What’s the link between Vermont’s largest pharmaceutical company, BeckePharm, and Palmer Laboratories, a New York-based upstart drug company? How did the virus, a mutated strain of the Avian Flu, end up in such a rural village? Will the vaccines released protect the people they were created for, or will more deaths occur? And will James find the answers before running out of time? Epidemic is a fast-paced thrill ride, culminating in an unexpected, show-stopping finale.
