Book Description

June 13 2001
Bestselling mystery author Susan Dunlap, acclaimed winner of two Anthony Awards and a Macavity Award, brings us a powerful new novel featuring private detective--and former medical examiner--Kiernan O' Shaughnessy.

Betrayed and set up to take the blame for a death caused by a deadly and highly contagious case of Lassa fever, Kiernan gets more than she bargained for when she responds to a call from an old college "friend." She knows that the death she's investigating could have truly dire consequences for the public if its cause is unleashed, inadvertently or otherwise.  And the trail of clues she follows--from her base in San Diego to the Nevada desert--is agonizingly complex.

Not helping matters is her houseman, the usually affable Brad Tchernak.  Tchernak may be a marvelous cook, companion, and dog feeder.  But he's feeling overlooked as a detective, and that has created tension between him and his employer.  While Kiernan pursues her case, Tchernak takes on one of his own, investigating a hotshot geologist who has just returned from a potentially multimillion-dollar oil find in Central America.

Of course, Tchernak's passion for this case may land him in mortal danger.  And, as Kiernan investigates the suspicious and alarming death that could portend international disaster, she must grapple with her own demons--especially the stubborn self-reliance that may be her downfall.  As the seemingly disparate cases intertwine, it becomes all too clear to Kiernan that she and Tchernak had better find what they're looking for, and fast, before they, too, become "bodies of evidence."

no immunity, susan dunlap's fourth novel featuring medical examiner-turned-private eye kiernan o'shaughnessy, is her best yet... kiernan has to deal with a potentially devastating, highly contagious virus that could ptove to become a huge epidemic. she has to face some past personal demons and make a tough decision to help an old friend, dr. jeff tremain, regardless of the threat to her personal safety... but it seems the only thing kiernan can say no to is partnership, so she agrees to help her old friend. adding to her woes is her long-time houseman, ex-pro football player brad tchernak, who's feeling undervalued and underapprecciated. brad is determined to prove himself to kiernan and he takes on a case of his own, seemingly unrelated to kiernan's highly-contagious virus. as the two cases begin to overlap, kiernan must do some quick thinking to save them both. a highly satisfying mystery, intelligent and fast-paced without ever rushing out of control. susan dunlap has become one of my favorite authors; i find myself reaching for her books itime and again. i'd love to see jill smith take a break from her woes and team up with and vj haskell to solve some really tough case!

5.0 out of 5 stars Another winner by Susan Dunlap March 23 1998
By A Customer
Format:Hardcover
Dr. Jeff Tremaine demands that private investigator Kiernan O'Shaughnessy apply her skills as a pathologist by conducting an autopsy on a cadaver, who might have died form a highly contagious disease. Jeff and Kiernan share the memory of a nasty experience in Africa where people were dying from a Lhasa fever epidemic. Jeff made a decision that ultimately cost him the woman he loved and he still blames Kiernanan for the choice he made. NO IMMUNITY is a believable tale that emphasizes the end result of fear, greed, and desperation that seems to prevail in today's society. Based on headline news stories about epidemics, Susan Dunlap weaves a frightening story where unchecked profit allows for the concealment of the truth and the resultant consequences are buried alongside it. Kiernan's motives to go it alone are fully understood, adding a personal touch to the chiller. This compelling thriller is a fascinating profile of human behavior that is a must read for those who enjoy an intellectual doomsday novel.
