The book, Sledgehammer (ISBN #097713870-4) is a gripping medical thriller about a terrorist who comes into a Los Angeles ER with symptoms of smallpox. Plans are for terrorists to spread the particularly aggressive form of smallpox, Sledgehammer Smallpox, into several sports arenas, airports and shopping malls to maximize its deadly effects.
In Sledgehammer, an intuitive ER physician, suspects the bioterrorism plot but is faced with convincing the hospital administration and the public health care system about the presence of this deadly disease and the need to vaccinate the American public. Itâ€™s a page turning, â€œstay-up-all-night and finish itâ€� book that has received numerous 5 star reviews including those from Midwest Review, Heartland Review and American Reporter. In fact, Joe Shea of the American Reporter states, â€œSledgehammer” is a gripping, powerful portrait of an American emergency room physician encountering the “index” case of a national bioterrorist attack by Islamic terrorists-It is probably the best bio-warfare thriller of the dozen-odd I’ve read in the past 10 years.â€�
In reality, how big a threat is smallpox? Dr. Reyes believes their exists a real danger today, especially with the rising attacks in London and the constant fear of biochemical threats from terrorists. The main question is â€œAre we ready?â€�
Dr. Reyes has also authored Health-Care Reform or Redistribution of Cost? and has participated in various disaster relief efforts in California including the Mexicana crash in 1986, the last major earthquake in L.A. in 1994 and the influenza epidemic 1997-1998.
