     Hidden and Imminent Dangers is more than a medical thriller about a pandemic.  It has apocalyptic characters embedded throughout the novel. Special Forces veteran and ER nurse Mac MacIntosh spends his days navigating the bedlam of a Louisville, Kentucky, hospital.  Though his work is rewarding and his family life happy, Mac can't shake the haunting memories of his time in war-torn Afghanistan.  He can't forget the violence and social upheaval he witnessed there.  When a flu-stricken patient arrives, infectious disase specialist Dr. Mercato Marcus suspects the patient's symptoms may indicate a far more serious problem.  The hospital becomes ground zero for a deadly mutant form of avian flu.  A frightening glimpse of the catastrophic potential of a global pandemic is shown.  It gives a sobering depiction if inadequate political, medical, and legal systems as the crisis mushrooms.
