Jerry Kassirer's endorsement for "Toxic Affairs on Hidden Lane"

Donald Hricik gave me the opportunity to read an advance copy of Toxic Affairs on Hidden Lane and once started, I completed the book in a single day; the intriguing plot invited me to keep reading. From my perspective, the book holds together well, and its surprises about the nature of poisons and poisoners seem genuine. Few books have as their protagonist a medical resident, whose career and workday are woven into a complex family matter; still fewer set the plot within a national deadly epidemic. Both the life of the resident and the epidemic descriptions are credible and scientifically sound. Toxic Affair on Hidden Lane is a good read.
