A unique story with just enough action throughout to keep things moving. One drawback was the highly technical biological and medical language when talking about the virus. It shows that Michael McBride does his research and wants to make the fictional story believable, but I found myself skipping some of it. Sometimes it was whole pages. Still a good book with great characters.

I'm a big fan of Michael McBrie. This is surely one of his best stories. The only way to classify it is as a bio-techno-thriller. It doesn't take a lot of stretching to realize the plausibility of the evil incarnate portrayed in the story.
It is a page turner, with great characters, lots of twists, and a satisfying ending. Isn't this one of the main reasons we read such works? No disappointment here at all, trust me.

Whew...starts with a bang and just keeps on going. At first, you think it's just going to be another procedural, who-dun-it but then the twists and turns start coming and it's hard to keep up with all your suspects! A novel premise (stretching from WWII to current events in genetic engineering) and well executed. Will definitely look forward to more books by McBride.

Excellent read! An evil seventy years old resurfaces and uses new technology to try to bring about a new Super race.This book successfully combined cutting edge science with a twisted view of playing God.A very interesting premiss! I really enjoyed reading this book
