White blood cells (WBCs), also called leukocytes or leucocytes, are the cells of the immune system that are involved in protecting the body against both infectious disease and foreign invaders. All white blood cells are produced and derived from multipotent cells in the bone marrow known as hematopoietic stem cells. Leukocytes are found throughout the body, including the blood and lymphatic system.

"White Blood" is the story of a Russian naturalist/adventurer in the early 20th century. As he is not a very well developed character, the book takes on the tone of the secondary characters who are on stage at a particular time in his life. My favorite character is Misha, a rural Russian aristocrat, and the tone set reminds one of Chekov; then the Russian revolution reaches even into the rural backwater, and for one wonderful scene various characters including Misha are discussing political philosophy in a scene reminiscent of Shaw at his best.

What really saves this book is that the prose is colorful without being overwrought, and at times is simply very good. "Going to America was completely submerged by the effort of steering these very different engagements upon which I balanced precariously, like a logger keeping his raft of timber in one pack". "The sewage of the past will burst out and sweep across the plains and choke us to death".

I gave "White Blood" 3 stars based on the adventure story aspect. The specimen collecting was dull, and the bloody denouement seems written for effect only.

Naturalist Charlie Doig loves traveling the globe seeking new discoveries that support Darwin's theories almost as much as he enjoys discovering new women; however Charlie also appreciates his respites at his family "Pink House" near Smolensk, Russia. In 1914, the Academy of Sciences sends him to Turkistan, but the war breaks out throughout Europe leaving him without funds and at least for the moment ending his latest pursuit to prove Darwinism is the only religion.

His travels has delayed his plans to one day wed his beloved Cousin Elizaveta, but by 1917, he brings her into his home as his wife after her fiancé was assassinated. As civil war breaks out against Tsarist Russia, many come to the Pink House for refuge. When Bolshevik Prokhor Glebov arrives, Charlie recognizes the cunning ruthlessness of the Marxists; he believes they will prove in the short run victorious as the barbarians always take the early triumphs because they understand survival of the fittest means innocent people must die. He also understands social Darwinism that in the long run civilization will return to defeat the barbarian Bolsheviks because they will prove to be the truely fittest, but Charlie doubts he will be there to see it.

This is a superb historical thriller that uses Social Darwin theories to provide a powerful look at the survival of the fittest in Russia, which proves by 1917 to be the Bolsheviks as only the ruthlessly strong survive. The story line is action-packed whether Charlie is having adventures in the Far East seeks exotic species or at his Pink House where the prime three groups that make up the Russia struggle to rule converge. Genre readers will appreciate the contrasts between the competitors as each believes they will triumph in a brave new world.

To be frank and honest, this is just not a very interesting book. In theory, it should have been. Here is a historical novel that takes place on the eve of the Russian Revolution, but seen not from the more common eyes of the revolutionary, but rather from the about to be overthrown landed class. Most books that use this historical back drop tend to romanticize the rise of the working class, and potentially trivialize the landed and established class. It would have been interesting to see things from another vantage point.

The essential problem is that the central character - Charlie Doig - is neither sympathetic nor particularly well developed. Mr. Flemming spends way too much of the book having Charlies chase bugs, beetles and birds (he's a naturalist in the story) and way too little worrying about the seminal events that are happening around him. With World War I and the Russian Revolution errupting around him, Charles worries himself far more with sending specimens to a museum than in being a participatnt in the events unfolding. Even when he enters into an incestuous union with his cousin, the writing and emotions are empty. It is hard to grant credibility to Charlie's rage after the attack on his bride.

It could be argued that Mr. Flemming created such an unlikable character as a back handed way to once again support the rise of the working class. For sure, if all of the established class in pre-revolution Russia are like Charlie, then its no wonder that the workers overthrew the Tsar and formed what has to be one of history's great social experiments. I just don't think that was Mr. Flemming's purpose. I think he tries to show another side to history, and failed miserably. Mr. Flemming is the nephew of Ian Flemming - who could spin a story with the best of them - and the ability to tell stories vividly, with force and presence just doesn't seem to run in the family. James Bond is one of popular literature's most enduring characters (whether one likes the genre of thriller or not); Charlie Doig is one the least interesting characters in recent memory.
