Judgment Day is a brilliant medical/legal thriller that dares to explore the unthinkable: an AIDS vaccine even more virulent than the disease and a drug company willing to kill to conceal it.
When attorney Jon Patchett is asked by Weber BioTech to look into the apparent suicide of one of its researchers, Alexander Tomlin, the young lawyer knows the stakes are high: Weber fears the death will affect FDA approval of its new AIDS vaccine, Prohiva - approval that could save millions of lives and make millions of dollars. But Jon and his legal assistant, Anne Matheson, have no idea that they are about to uncover a diabolical plot more chilling than the fictional nightmare visions created by Robin Cook or the real-life headline-capturing ravages of viruses like Ebola.
As Jon and Anne begin their investigation, they know that Weber is intent on making sure that nothing - including Tomlin's death - will interfere with the approval process. But the discovery of unexplained notes buried in boxes of documents, and then the death of Tomlin's secretary and lover, start them on a journey that leads to BioTech's laboratory in the southwest desert. There, they learn the truth: the company's top-secret Prohiva research included an experiment in human testing that has gone disastrously amok. And the pharmaceutical company is silently eliminating the victims to protect the secret.
With the lies surrounding the vaccine beginning to unravel, Jon and Anne stumble into a race against time as Weber executives, in a frantic effort to eliminate all the evidence of their deadly research, close in on them...
