Publisher's Summary

In the first installment of an exciting new series from Robert Ludlum, a teenage girl in Atlanta, an Army major in California, and a homeless man in Boston all die a horrible and painful sudden death from the devastating effects of an unknown virus. Lt. Col. Jonathan Smith, a combat doctor attached to the United States Army Medical Research Institute for Infectious Diseases, is assigned to solve the mystery of the virus' abrupt appearance. But as the death count rapidly mounts by the dozens, hundreds, thousands - in America, and around the world - Smith finds himself trapped in a maelstrom of mystery and danger.

Hardly knowing where to turn or whom to trust, Smith assembles a ragtag private team to aid him in his search for the truth behind the deadly virus - a quest that will lead them to the highest levels and darkest corners of the globe.

Great story horrible narration.

The story was great!

The narration by Joseph Campanella was horrible. He spoke with a soft voice throughout the whole story. I it was very annoying.

Orator is TERRIBLE

I’m not sure I’m going to be able to get through this whole book. It’s no reflection on the writing, but the guy doing the reading sounds like he’s talking through a broken nose. I have a hard time just understanding what he’s saying as he mumbles his way through. I have to turn the volume way up, then he suddenly yells and blows my ears out.

Very good

If you like Ludlum you will like this. Reasonably well paced and a good story; complex but understandable.
