    The life Kamila Sidiqi had known changed overnight when the Taliban seized control of the city of Kabul. After receiving a teaching degree during the civil war - a rare achievement for any Afghan woman - Kamila was subsequently banned from school and confined to her home. When her father and brother were forced to flee the city, Kamila became the sole breadwinner for her five siblings. Armed only with grit and determination, she picked up a needle and thread and created a thriving business of her own.

    The master of medical suspense brings us another novel of controversy, biology, and human greed. Internist Matt Rutledge has spent the last five years trying to find links between the deaths of his wife and his father. He suspects the Belinda Coke and Coal Company has released toxic chemicals into the environment that have caused the "Belinda Syndrome," a miasma of symptoms that include violent and deadly paranoia in some, Ebola-like hemorrhaging in others. But he lacks proof.

    Where does Fatal rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    It was good but almost quit at beginning because of reader's voice


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Fatal?

    As I tried to figure out who the "main evil boss" was I thought I was right and was sort of surprised and saddened that I was!


    Did Michael Palmer do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    I really was grateful that his descriptions helped me to totally keep the characters straight.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Unknown
