Smallpox Virus as Terrorist Bioweapon: New Thriller “Deadly Pages” by Dr. Leslie Norins Blends Riveting Fiction with Chilling National Security Warning
Date:6/9/2016

Start with 100-200 hundred million U.S. citizens – or 30-60 percent of the population -- dead or dying. Add a dwindling group of terrified survivors. And make this diabolical nightmare a foregone conclusion if one patriotic man of science doesn’t stop terrorists from using the smallpox virus as a devastating bioweapon. These are the elements that masterfully intertwine in “Deadly Pages”: the new novel by Dr. Leslie Norins, M.D., Ph.D., with contributions from Thomas Hauck.

The terrorists’ plan in Deadly Pages is as insidious as it is ingenious: contaminating the ink used to print the New York Times, in order to spread the lethal smallpox virus to readers as they handle their morning newspapers. The only person who can stop this devastation is retired US Army and CDC officer Dr. Martin Riker. He sets off on a perilous trek from New York City to Syria in a frenetic attempt to trace and infiltrate the terrorist cell behind the plot. It’s a gripping page-turner in the best tradition of thrillers that blur the line between riveting fiction, and chilling national security warning.

“The U.S. Government ended the routine smallpox vaccination of all children in 1980,” commented Dr. Norins, who has over 50 years of experience in medical research and medical publishing. “Now, more than 35 years later, our population no longer has that protection against smallpox. Many experts theorize that terrorists can exploit this vulnerability -- including a high level government official who, on condition of anonymity, revealed that his department spent a great deal of time wrestling with this very possibility.”

“[Deadly Pages is] a masterly suspense novel with a credible scenario related by a medical scientist who really knows what he is talking about,” commented Sir Gustav Nossal, Professor Emeritus at the University of Melbourne. “It’s a compulsive must read.”

Deadly Pages is published by Medvostat, LLC, and available now in bookstores and from Amazon.com (paperback and Kindle).
