Taking a break from decoding the genetic sequence of a tropical disease, Alex takes on an investigation into the gruesome and unexplained death of a DEA agent on a mob stakeout in New Mexico. Within hours, she uncovers similar deaths throughout the Southwest. Is it a naturally occurring epidemic or has a lethal bio weapon been released in the United States?
With the nation's attention focused on a provocative presidential race, Alex's attempts to warn Homeland Security fail. Only with the help of a rogue DEA agent and a cutting-edge supercomputer will she and the rest of her team at the Armed Forces Institute of Pathology stand a chance of putting an end to the devastation before public hysteria rages out of control.
From Alex's lab to the closed rooms of a killer's mind, Immunity maps the perfect sequence for an infectious, edge-of-your-seat thriller.
The story was convoluted - I lost interest before I was half-way through. The characters were caricatures - Sexy, blond, Ivy League scientist dedicated to finding the truth even if she has to bend the rules while she rides around in her cool T-bird, etc. etc. I don't even want to deal with the childish talking computer that appears in the latter half of the story.
I am a big fan of sci-fi, thrillers, and suspense genres, so I am more than willing to suspend belief if the story is compelling, but Immunity is just ludicrous.
Also the narrator was very disappointing. The accents were amateruish and several words were mispronounced. The only reason I finished it was because I was on a long drive and I had no backup book.
