This is how the world ends....
An invisible killer has returned. The last time it raged, upward of 40 million died - in a matter of months. Now it is back, released to prey on an unsuspecting, unprotected world.
The first case appears on a flawless spring morning, initially diagnosed as a common cold - perhaps a mild flu. Then the deaths begin. New York and Florida are quarantined. International travel is halted. A Japanese doomsday cult commits mass suicide, its final mission completed.
Beck Casey, an expert on biological warfare, is called back to his former CIA post to unravel the twisted case... and to discover if a vaccine exists. But Casey's potential allies to save the future are the worst enemies from his past. The Final Epidemic has begun.

Yes. The cause of the epidemic seemed easy to figure out but who released it was a complete surprise. With all of the twists, you never knew who was going to die next and in a thriller this is always a plus.
When they find Beck's daughter and friend and are able to save them.
Totally addicted to Audible.
This is not a new storyline but it is well written and has intriguing characters. I bought the Kindle book and got the audio book for $1.99. That is a great way to hear a new series by an author I had not read before. Beck Casey caught my attention and I am starting the next book. Narrator was good too.
Just horribly boring! I could not even stay interested long enough to get to the main story! I have never felt that way about a book!
The unnecessary background and chit chat that had nothing to do with the story so boring it put me to sleep!
I did not like his personality or the way he portrayed the characters. Maybe it was just the book or writing itself.
Just all the unnecessary endless descriptions of the characters thoughts that had nothing to do with the story so I could not finish the book.
Total waste of a credit and my money!
