The Savior Vaccine, the second novel in Dr. Michael Rushnak’s medical thriller trilogy, The Health Club Mysteries, was actually the first book I read. (Check out my comments under Customer Reviews for the first book, Terminal Neglect.) In the darkness of Superstorm Sandy I could not find the note that I should have started with Terminal Neglect. No matter! The Savior Vaccine picked up the thrill and pace of the first book without missing a beat. Yet Dr. Rushnak gave the reader enough information from the first book that the reader could ascertain what was going on without undue repetition. So, if you would pick up any book of the series at an airport shop, not knowing it was part of a series, you would not be lost and disappointed.
The suspense in The Savior Vaccine is heightened by the assassination of some favorite characters from the first book. I’ve commented on the extensive experience in healthcare Dr. Rushnak brings to the background and plot turns. He is talented as making his character descriptions real. Many thriller authors share these advantages to some degree. But it is not since I read Frederick Forsythe’s Day of the Jackal some forty years ago that I have been completely lifted out of my own life into the world of the novel. I note with the recent anniversary celebration of Jackal that many other readers share similar memory of that remarkable thriller. I feel secure in predicting that Dr. Rushnak’s trilogy will take a comparable revered place in the thriller genre.
To repeat a bit from my Terminal Neglect review, I first became acquainted with Dr. Rushnak when he spoke at a Rotary meeting I attended. I highly recommend him as a speaker of non-fiction healthcare topics. In person, he is as dynamic as he is as an author. He is modest about his books and didn’t pressure their sale at the meeting.

The characters I loved and loved-to-hate in his first book take on real world politcal and medical issues in the Savior Vaccine. I absolutely loved the second book! It was creative, had unexpected plot twists, and I cannot wait to read about their next adventures!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

The Savior Vaccine is the second book of the "Health Club Mysteries Series", by Michael Rushank. Like his first book the Savior Vaccine is a fast paced action thriller with multiple twists and turns. The non stop tension and suspense made me anxious to turn the page to find out what would happen next. The story is great and the characters are interesting. You can't help but love the good guys and despise the bad guys. I can't wait for the 3rd book in this awesome series.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

Another nail-biter from Michael Rushnhak. The second book in the trilogy was as hard to put down as the first. The action was fast paced with plenty of twists and turns and of course bodies! Nuclear disaster and the mimirncmedical consequences it brings coupled with corruption and greed make this novel another winner in my book! MIMIRNCWas this review helpful?

After reading Terminal Neglect, I knew I had to read Michael Rushnak's second book The Savior Vaccine, especially since I love medical mysteries. But this was more than a medical mystery. Although, it was fiction, it explores what is really happening in government today and will make you wonder if this can really happen in today's society. As I was reading, I kept thinking, wow this is closer to reality than ever before. I can't wait for the next book to come out.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

Michael Rushnak weaves an intriguing tapestry in The Savior Vaccine. The overriding premise is a frightening possibility, all too real in today's world. His characters restore our faith in our ability to make right choices and hold on to principles even when the stakes are high.
Rushnak keeps the reader on edge and opens our eyes to the behind-the-scenes mechanics at work in the world of politics and big business.
The Savior Vaccine is a fitting sequel to Terminal Neglect. I can't wait for part three of the trilogy!

The Savior Vaccine is another thought-provoking medical mystery thriller by Dr. Rushnak. If you loved the fast-paced action coupled with reality of his first book, Terminal Neglect, then you won't be able to put this one down. Definitely recommend both books and can't wait for the next one in the series!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

After reading Rushnak's first book, Terminal Neglect, I couldn't wait until he continued the thrilling series. The Savior Vaccine is a real page-turner - whenever I thought I knew what would happen on the next page, he would take it in a surprising new direction with interesting character developments and exciting plot twists. I don't want to give much of the plot away, but the story follows Dr. Rogers as he tries to discover the truth behind a new vaccine that he suspects may be deadly. Facing a lot of resistance and headwinds, he stops at nothing to verify the safety of the vaccine before it's given to all Americans. Following the story really makes you wonder if, in real life, America is prepared to protect us? I can't wait for Rushnak's next book!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

The Savior Vaccine is the second book in Michael Rushnak's trilogy of the Health Club Mysteries that I have read. As with his first novel Terminal Neglect, The Savior Vaccine is a gripping, top-grade medical mystery thriller. The author combines medicine with the politics of Washington, D.C. and captures your attention with an action-packed, suspenseful, intriguing and thrilling novel that will keep you turning pages to arrive at the awesome and unpredictable ending. I give this novel 5 stars ~ It is a must read! Hope to see it on the big screen!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
