A massive hurricane strikes Galveston, Texas, leaving a hospital and its inhabitants trapped with a deadly virus and no way to escape. In the sensational thriller The Lambda Factor by Dimple P. Desai, MD, we are thrown into action at once. With a category five hurricane on its way, the island city of Galveston is evacuating its residents. The University Hospital has evacuated most of its patients, but the critical care patients and a skeleton crew are still waiting for helicopters to airlift them out. A power outage releases a deadly virus due to the storm, and the hospital goes on mandated quarantine. Ensuring the virus doesn't spread to the rest of the world, the military blows up the bridges to the mainland and abandons the island, imprisoning unlucky victims with viral infections, and a forty to fifty percent death ratio. There is no vaccine. With limited medical and food supplies, the hospital staff is fighting an incurable disease. With starvation and thirst threatening their survival, can they keep everyone alive? Or will they all die alone, separated from the rest of the world?

Set against the dramatic background of a storm-torn island, The Lambda Factor by Dimple P. Desai, MD is a brilliant medical thriller. Impeccably written, the author has created a stunningly realistic story world filled with drama and suspense. This extraordinary book is the best thing I have read all year! The phenomenal story contains a thrilling plot fueled by conflict and crisis, one that kept me engaged all the way through to its astonishing and enigmatic last page. All of the characters are fully developed, genuine, and relatable. Each and every one of them is an admirable and awe-inspiring hero or heroine, respectively. The story closes perfectly with an ideal segue into a sequel, which I heartily hope will follow. Intense and exciting, The Lambda Factor will delight everyone who relishes thrillers about natural disasters including medical and military aspects.
