When incidents of food supply contamination dominate the news media, two investigators - Zol Szabo, a public health doctor, and Hamish Wakefield, a young infectious diseases specialist - come under immense pressure to find the cause of a mysterious epidemic before more victims show up on the autopsy table. In a race against the clock, the two doctors must navigate the treacherous political minefields of the medical community and the media while the disease spreads. The situation soon spins wildly out of control and more lives are threatened after a government-appointed investigator hijacks the investigation and allows his inflated ego to supersede common sense. Speaking to contemporary concerns about food safety, this fast-paced medical thriller illustrates the potential for disastrous consequences when total responsibility for food safety is placed in the hands of manufacturers and pharmaceutical companies.

I had to know what was going to happen next. It was hard to quit listening,like I might miss something.
I liked how he changed his voice for each character. He was very easy to listen to.
I felt the frustration the characters felt. I strongly disliked the characters who were only interested in the political aspect of the situations with people's lives mostly because I know that is real life.
I was happy with the ending
I am a middle aged woman with an open mind and many interests, my reading/listening moods change like my teen-age daughter changes her clothes.
I like the real-life or potential real-life "correct" medical plot combined with a little bit of fiction.
