Excerpt. Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.:

"Sheila Boxer was standing at the stainless steel sink at the rear of the pharmacy dumping bottles of outdated and unusable antibiotics down the drain... Yet even as she did so, she chastised herself, she felt a chill flow over her. The hairs on her slender arms stood on end giving her goose flesh. Down in the sewer line they could be mixing a deadly brew of pathogens. When the infected body fluids the nurses pour down the drains get mixed with the outdated antibiotics she, as the pharmacist, poured down, many pathogens are killed. But of the ones that aren't killed, a frightening resistance to treatment might develop. What could happen if it ever got loose?" (p. 8) "Gil found only one comfortable spot in this whole dismal place-the Sourdough Caf. While Sharon whipped up one of her special omelets for him, Gil sat and sipped his coffee, letting his eyes wander over the photos of Fabian and Elvis, or the colored prints of the great fin-tailed cars, like the DeSoto Firelight coupe shoe print hung by Gil's table. For a quarter, an authentic Wurlitzer jukebox played a golden oldie. The sounds of yesterday carried Gil's mind back to a time when all a man had to worry about was the Red threat, a time when a man earned an honest wage for an honest day's work. That time was gone, along with the '57 Thunderbird whose photo hung next to the box of Pic-O-Mints on the counter. Honesty wasn't worth a plug nickel nowadays. Men with deaf ears and blind eyes drove the Mercedes. Gil laid a pair of five dollar bills on the table and walked out. By the time Gil was boarding the plane back to Kansas he felt as though he'd aged ten years in the past twelve months. He was never so happy to be leaving a place as he was now... Alaska seemed ugly to him. He hoped the damned place simply froze over for good. Even the smiling Eskimo face painted on the Boeing's tail seemed somehow sacrilegious."
