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.
