I didn’t think I’d actually be a fan of this book at first, however after learning more about the plot, characters, and setting, this turned out to be quite a winner.
Deadly Cure by Lawrence Goldstone, is a very interesting historical novel that involves mystery, medical knowledge, and some cool story-line.
In 1899, in Brooklyn, New York, Dr. Noah Whitestone is called desperately to his well-off neighbor’s home to treat a five-year-old kid with very odd symptoms At the point when the kid passes on all of a sudden soon thereafter, Noah is blamed by the kid’s normal doctor—the intense and politically associated Dr. Arnold Frias, who accuses Noah of giving the boy a deadly dosage of laudanum.
Noah must research the murder—for it must be a murder—and stand up to the man whom he is persuaded is the genuine executioner. His examination drives him to a columnist for a muckraking magazine and an excellent radical supervisor who are persuaded that a mystery, exploratory medication from Germany has caused the demise of no less than five neighborhood kids, and perhaps some more. By degrees, Noah is drawn into an unsafe universe of medications, gangs, and governmental issues, which undermines his profession as well as his life.
The book is very cleverly written, as well as the author clearly knows medicines, considering the book is heavily based on that kind of niche. It displays a good beginning, middle, and end, and it all manages to come back together in the end. If you’re a reader, and in the need of a new book to occupy your time with, Deadly Cure should be a contender.
