Keith has taken a rather intellectual approach to the ordinary crime thriller. Providing very detailed scene-setting, the pace of the story is far from frenetic.

Adam does a fair amount of traveling and those scenes are captured very nicely as well.
Amazon has it listed as a medical mystery, but that

Magic Bullets: The Perfect Medicine by Keith Jahans is not your typical crime fiction. Jahans has an interesting background and this is not his first writing endeavor, however it is one that has been in development for quite a while. With a medical slant, the book takes on a more serious tone, one that sets the stage for plenty of action and intrigue. Adam Knight is the protagonist, a microbiologist, and as such takes the brunt of the bad stuff that happens in this fast paced novel. Firstly, he ...more

Shelves: crime
Adam Knight, a hero in the James Bond mould, has to choose between his own discovery and the health of people who might trust in a new antibiotic. Action packed, with a romantic element and realistic dialogue, this is a book that will not only appeal to fans of crime stories. An enjoyable thriller.
