From the Author:

I have two Dachshunds; Alvin and Alice, and cannot imagine a world without them. As a practicing internist in New York I am exposed to loss all too many times. In recent past, had to deal with possibility of horrific viral epidemics, with consequences affecting humans in a catastrophic way. My love for my guys, and thoughts of such an epidemic inspired the idea of "Unconditional Loss". A loss; out of our control.

From the Back Cover:

The flu has mutated and is killing large numbers of people. Dr. Preston McBride's research work on a vaccine, mandated by the government, is stolen out from under him. Frustrated, he ditches his prestigious laboratory position in New York to wipe snotty noses at a family clinic in California. His mother is a New Age flake, his girlfriend resents him, and his ambition is on hold. Then a bizarre canine illness surfaces. One by one and then by the thousands, beloved pets, trusted guardians and vital work dogs perish. As humanity goes berserk over the looming extinction of "man's best friend." McBride watches the people in his own life deteriorate with grief from the depth of a loss they cannot seem to bear. He races to find the cause, and with that, a cure for this plague that has reached Biblical proportions. His new research plunges him into a world of desperate corporate greed and sinister political machinations, where he uncovers a horrifying truth. He must confront the sanctioned hubris of one man who could wipe out not just every canine from Airedales to Zuchons to wolves and foxes, but also humankind itself.
