The saga of this trilogy continues with the escapades of the Surgeon General, Dr. Johnathan Rogers, who attempts to save the nation from a deadly vaccine. Couldn't put it down. Loved it!

I read this book as soon as I finished the first one. It is as difficult to put down with suspense building at the turn of every page. Great read!

Mr.Rushnak did it again. He brought the character of Dr. Rogers back to life and keeps you in suspense throughout the book. he is truly an up and coming mystery writer. Can't wait to start the last book in the in the triology.

Dr. Jonathan Rogers is back in this gripping second installment of The Health Club Mysteries trilogy. Several US cities have been targeted in an ongoing nuclear war, and President Jane Williams is faced with a life or death decision on a grand scale. The survival of all American citizens may depend on fast-tracking FDA approval of a vaccine that prevents cancer caused by radiation poisoning. But is this drug, dubbed the Savior Vaccine, too good to be true? Dr. Rogers, now Surgeon General, must learn the truth and advise the President before another nuclear attack occurs. Author Michael Rushnak once again explores the impact of government and politics on big pharma profits and vice versa. The result is thought-provoking and thrilling. Is The Savior Vaccine a blessing or a curse? And is there any alternative?

This book interested me because of the political theme. Michael Rushnak has done it again with a story plot that keeps the reader intrigued with Dr. Jonathan Rogers character. It's so well written that one could believe the story could actually be true to life.

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!

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.

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! MIMIRNC

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.

The Savior Vaccine deserves 10 stars! This must read second novel by Dr Michael Rushnak offers a twisting and turning thriller into corrupt dealings between Capitalism and our Government, as millions of lives hang in the balance. I was hooked with Terminal Neglect!

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!

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!

Having read Terminal Neglect & now the second in Michael Rushnak's trilogy, The Savior Vaccine, I have become a strong fan of his writing and can hardly wait for #3. This story will grab you immediately & pull you through intrigue,thrills & surprises. There are good character delineations & the possibilities in the plot are frightening. I also appreciate when an author educates with his knowledge of the subject. By all means read this timely novel. It will "stay" with you afterward.

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!
