" The Cure is a fast paced and hard to put down read, highly recommended."
--Midwest Book Review; August 2012
"Wow!! and Whoa!!! What interesting twists and turns Bradlee Frazer has created in The Cure. This very detailed story zips and circles around on
itself as the time and tension of these people's lives pulled me along. The Cure made me sad, and then frustrated wondering if a key character
would ever come to his senses. It made me tear up, then worry, then have hope--then lose it, and then get it back again.
Frazer employs nice tight writing that is filled with sharp details. I got a strong sense of all the places, and was able to create the whole group of
characters in my mind. It's well written, with good, surprising narrative change-ups that kept coming back around to ongoing parallel events from
different points of view. I was caught off guard by what new events popped up. Frazer's imagination kept ahead of my imagination.
Bradlee Frazer has constructed a well-crafted, compelling science-medical thriller."

"If Stephen King and Michael Crichton had written Double Indemnity, it would have been The Cure."
--Author D. J. Butler; March 2012
"This book is an easy-to-read, fast-paced, page-turner. The story line is gripping, and I couldn't wait to see how everything would be reconciled in

What if we had the cure for a catastrophic illness, but it lay hidden inside the blood and bones of just one man? A mysterious new contagion is
decimating the population. It starts in the lungs, like the flu, then moves to the bones, where it weakens and breaks them, eventually killing the host.
The disease's origin, methods of propagation and means of contraction are all unknown. There is no vaccine, and none is expected, as the virus is
protean and elusive. If it remains unchecked and mutates into a more virulent form, it will become an extinction level event. Jason Kramer has the
disease, known by its nickname "Trips Lite" (the CDC doctor who discovered it is a fan of Stephen King's "The Stand"), but his body produces a
unique antibody that kills the viruses inside him. This component in Jason's blood can be harvested and given to anyone who needs it—his blood can
heal. But pharmaceutical magnate Phillip Porter needs to keep people believing that only his expensive drug cocktail will slow Trips Lite down, and so
if there’s any chance someone with the disease will live, Phillip Porter must make sure that Jason Kramer does not. Interweaving the styles of John
Grisham and Michael Crichton, The Cure is a thriller that fuses genres while retaining its own unique voice to tell the story of Jason—burdened with
the knowledge that he is mankind’s last hope—as he struggles against Porter’s avarice and greed in the face of an impending viral apocalypse.
